Life Restoration Center is designed to deal with the whole man, woman, boy and girl. Our desire is to address the issues of life that many people go through. We don't care where you've been when you come to us; but we dare you to remain in that place. Once you've had an experience with God, it is impossible to stay the same.
God said in Deuteronomy 30:19; "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live". We have a choice today. God is telling us to choose life and blessing. However; most people have chosen, and are choosing death and cursing. Whether it's bad choices, programming and conditioning, or ignorance, the results are still the same; a terrible cursed life full of heartache and pain.
Life Restoration Center is here to assist the lost, underserved, sick, hungry, the addict, alcoholic, incarcerated, the stepped on, lied to, the fallen, underprivileged, the locked up and locked out. Our mission is to empower each person that crosses our path by helping to restore them to their rightful place on this earth; a place of purpose; a place that they can become all that God has created them to become.
We believe that God has a specific purpose for each and every person He created. Most people have no idea who they are and why they are here. The number 1 biggest problem we face today is an identity problem. If we all woke up tomorrow morning with a clear understanding of our true purpose and reason for our being here. The face of our planet would change instantly!
We envision self-sufficient communities with citizens tapped into the true reason for their existence, doing what they were created to do. We see people using their gifts and talents to help others reach their full potential; assisting in creating businesses to produce strong striving companies and communities.
This program will be available for LRC clients as well as the community.
LRC will offer support sessions and training on a daily basis. It will also be used as a meeting site for NA/AA organizers.
Various employment training sessions including job search, interview techniques, resume writing, Attitudinal Training, and Life Management Skills will be offered.
Community informational sessions will be offered in an effort to educate and motivate clients to live healthier lives.
Spiritual enrichment sessions will be offered daily. We believe that real healing and deliverance first occurs as a spiritual experience.
This will be a time of showcasing your talents; whether it is in dance, song, instrumental, poetry, or a display of acting skills.

Our goal here is to bring out the best in our young people and assist in their transition into adulthood.

MEN OF DESTINY
Men of Destiny is a life enrichment program that is designed to help position and propel men into their rightful place of leadership, purpose, and destiny. MOD is directed toward men who are searching for answers to two of life's most often asked questions; "who am I and why am I here". This program has been strategically designed for men who are ready to find their true place in God's plan. They are ready to move out of their comfort zone and into their divine destiny.
We have assessed the dilemma that exist and have designed this program to contribute to the challenge. We are grounded in Universal Laws and Spiritual Principles, because we recognize the incredible power of these fundamental truths and we realize that we're all governed by them.
We all have greatness in us. It's our duty to expose as many men to theirs' as possible. I look forward to this most interesting and inviting challenge.
