Overcomers is a Christ centered 12-step program that began in the mid-1980s when a young man, who was newly clean and sober, wanted to reach out to fellow addicts and show them the freedom he had found in Christ. Since that time, the group has grown into an international ministry that is still reaching those caught in the vise of life controlling issues. Overcomers curriculum is used in the Race and Tree of Life Programs, as well as an outreach resource to individuals in our community.
Freedom Outreach Ministries is committed to fulfilling the mandate of Christ in Matthew 25:36, which says “I was in prison and you came to me.” Discipleship and Life Skill classes are taught weekly at several units. The goal is to help men become the Men of God that Jesus has always intended for them to be. Anointed singing and preaching the truth from the Word of God results in changed lives that God uses while the men are incarcerated and when released from prison.
