Men of Valor's primary focus is to share the Gospel and introduce men to Jesus Christ and provide Discipleship Training for men that are born again believers in Jesus Christ. Our hope is that we establish relationship and build trust with men that will commit to spending one year in our “outside prison” Aftercare Re-entry Discipleship Program. We currently minister to over 200 men inside prisons weekly.
Our “outside prison” Aftercare Re-entry Discipleship Program is a 12 month program structured in two six month segments. Upon release a man is picked up from prison and enters into our program. We provide all essential necessities including hygiene bags, clothing, food, housing and transportation.
The first six months consists of weekly Discipleship Training focusing on Bible Studies, Prayer, Scripture Memory, Addiction Recovery, Manhood Training, Church Attendance, Wellness, and Job Readiness.
The next six months a man experiences a slow transition to independent living with continued programming and full time employment while remaining in housing provided by Men of Valor. We are currently ministering to 10 men outside prison.
