Men’s Program Celebrates March 2011 Graduation


Men’s Christian Life Discipleship Program


Sunday, March 6th 2011


Graduation is something we celebrate three times a year with the men who have successfully completed the Life Transformation Program at Union Rescue Mission. Every one of these men have fulfilled the many requirements of the year long intensive course.

The program aims to transform lives, through the teaching of life skills, stepping through recovery, and instilling the knowledge and love of God. Men complete hours of Bible study, physical exercise, counseling, anger management, and other training. Graduation is the time where transformed men stand before everyone with the realization of their self-worth and a great sense of security through a new trust in God.

As part of the commencement ceremony, Dr. Robert Flores, President of LIFE Pacific College, shared a message as the graduation keynote speaker. His message focused on God’s gift of second chances and challenged the graduates to above all else, remain focused on God.

Twenty-three men recieved diplomas and were given celebration for all their progress and dedication. Chaplains, guests, and program directors prayed over our men as they will now continue into new lives as newly empowered men for God.

Union Rescue Mission celebrates with every new graduate and is thankful to everyone who continues to make this program possible!
