"And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
Matthew 4:19 (KJV)
"And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also."
2 Timothy 2:2 (KJV)
It is the River City Rescue Mission’s policy to help serve our Lord Jesus Christ through the mission’s ability to provide a temporary home to men in need. We provide, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, a program that promotes and bridges the gap of communication between our wayward brothers and the one and only living God.
Once admitted, men are placed on a probationary period of seven days, allowing time to evaluate the needs of each individual and the mission’s ability to meet those needs. After orientation, clients will progress through thirty and one-hundred and twenty day phases based upon staff approval and program participation.
"Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins."
James 5:19-20 (NKJV)
This is an in-care facility intended to aid men in their attempts to re-enter society after a time of healing and building of faith. We are a spiritual recovery and Christian based organization. Our mission is to offer lost souls the life giving words of God and discipleship through the teachings of His Son Jesus Christ. Clients are required to attend daily chapel and Sunday Church services as well as small group classes.
While part of our four month Christian Program, clients learn the values of self-discipline, keeping all outside influences to a minimum. During their time here, they will participate in occupational therapy that allows them to build character, learn new skills, and create a positive work ethic. Upon successful completion a client may be allowed to extend his stay while seeking employment and alternate housing.
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable perfect will of God."
Romans 12:2 (NKJV)
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
