Jesus Changing Lives ~ One Man At A Time.
"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36
Welcome to Pilgrim Ministries. We specialize in training men to become disciples of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to experience His power to redeem their lives and to reconcile them from the bondage of drug/alcohol addiction producing productive citizens and servants in the surrounding communities. We work with lawyers, district attorneys, judges, attorneys, probation/parole officers and family members to help them find an alternative to jail or prison for men struggling with addiction. Jail or prison is not the answer to drug/alcohol addiction. Surrendering your life to Jesus Christ is the answer and cure to addiction and all sin. Pilgrim Ministries is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, 1-2 year residential ministry providing housing, utilities, food and training for each resident in the ministry. We have a minimal cost to the residents of $100/week in Phase I residency (6 months). During this phase the men are not allowed to gain employment. The men will attend Bible Studies and participate in biblical based curriculums for 6 to 8 hours a day Monday thru Friday. In Phase II residency (6 months) the men will gain employment and begin to implement the teaching and training they have received in Phase I. We have 100% employment for all residents. The cost of Phase II residency is $150/week. This puts more of the responsibility of the cost of the residency on the individual rather than the family or sponsors who are paying for the residents first six months of residency. At the end of one year the resident may agree to enter into Phase III residency for up to one additional year undertaking a leadership role in the ministry with new responsibilities as a residential house leader. Phase III residential cost remains at $150/week. Pilgrim Ministries has the capacity to house up to 16 residents. We typically have substantial wait times for men looking to enter the ministry sometimes 3 to 4 months with 10 to 15 men on our waiting list. Please contact us immediately to have your potential resident added to our waiting list and begin the necessary steps for admission. All potential residents are required to submit a criminal background check and health screening consisting of HIV, TB and Hepatitis A B C before entering. Pilgrim Ministries has seen great success over the past 14 years with 60% of the men who have completed the ministry not being re-incarcerated and more importantly 30% of the men who have completed the ministry God has drastically changed their lives for His glory. Jesus is the answer. Pilgrim Ministries cannot change a man's life but we will do our best to point him to the One who can. Jesus!!! Colossians 3:2-3 "set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God".
