OUR STORY: Pilgrim Ministries began in the fall of 2005. My wife Terri and I felt the Lord calling us to open up our home to men who have struggled with drug/alcohol addiction. We wanted to provide discipleship to them with love, encouragement, accountability, structure, and responsibility. I struggled with addiction to drugs/alcohol for almost 20 years before Jesus found me, saved me, and set me free at a faith-based addiction ministry in 2004.  May 14, 2004 is the last day I used drugs or alcohol and June 19, 2004 is the day I gave my life to Christ. Praise God!!! I received Victory and True Freedom that day as I have been set free for almost 15 years now. Terri and I wanting to be obedient to God’s calling on our lives decided to open up our home to men with the same addictions I had battled. We were renting a humble two bedroom house with one bathroom at the time.

It started out with one man, then two men, three men, and before long we had four men living with us. Our house was very small even for us; however we knew this was something God wanted us to do. We had one man sleeping in the spare bedroom, one man sleeping on the couch, one man sleeping in a room on the back porch, and one man sleeping in the dining room where our kitchen table and chairs once were. It was a very trying time for us and I thank God that my wife is a godly woman. It was very hard on her with five men and one bathroom. We continued to pray and wait for God to reward our obedience as we sacrificed our privacy and personal time together. In March of 2007 God answered our prayers and we were able to purchase a home in Clarkesville. We knew this was the perfect house a gift from God as soon as we had seen it. It had four bedrooms upstairs and bath, master bedroom downstairs and bath, and an apartment on the side with a bath. This home provided us the necessary room to house these men, but at the same time gave us our personal space as well. God is so awesome! In June of 2010 God blessed us with yet another house located down the street from our main house that allowed us to house five additional men. Can I say again God is Awesome!!! August 2011 God provided yet another opportunity for the ministry to grow as we purchased a third house in our neighborhood that houses five more men. WOW!!! The ministry has now grown to three houses and the capability of housing sixteen men. October 2013 God provided Terri and I with our own home located right in the middle of the three ministry homes. Thank You Lord!!! Jehovah Jireh the Lord Provides!!!
