On Sunday, June 28th Union Rescue Mission recognized 23 men for their commitment to a restored life and the completion of our 12 month Christian Life Discipleship Program. Our chapel was filled with love from proud family, friends, and mentors as our graduates were celebrated for their accomplishment! We thank Key Note Speaker, Keith Phillips of World Impact, for his inspiring words and musical guest, Carol Picott, for her moving performance.
Excerpt from program:
The Christian Life Discipleship Program helps program participants in discovering their true self as created in the image of God. Consequently, healing takes place when men are re-parented and begin the process of learning new life skills. As participants come to know God, they realize that He will meet all of their needs, and they can have a greater sense of security as a result of believing and trusting in God. A relationship with God fosters an interpersonal bond of mutuality, giving a sense of belonging, nurturing growth, love respect and care for self as well as others. The ultimate goal of the Christian Life Discipleship Program is to assist men in growing in the “Image of God.”
“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him.” Colossians 3:10
