The Men and women of New Heart Place are vital members of a healing community of faith; a people of God’s presence.
“People whose lives are characterized by addictions, violence, abandonment, and failure are in need of evangelization that offers the power of Christ found in a healing community. These healing communities have the ability to take broken and scarred tissue from tattered lives and out of terrible environments and form new cells.”
Dr. Cheryl Johns
Healing and Holy Spirit Transformation is the Focus of Our Ministry
As much as we honor those who have achieved sobriety in their recovery, our focus is not clean and sober. The focus of our ministry is to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in the development of an authentic “man or woman of God after God’s own heart.” If a student becomes a genuine man or woman of God, drugs and alcohol will no longer be an issue.
Each week, the men and women of New Heart Place will participate in an evening of worship, ministry of the Word, and one of six distinct healing and recovery groups.
New Heart Place
Holistic healing simply cannot occur in isolation. Learning how to forgive, how to reconcile a strained or broken relationship can only happen in community. Maturing from a preadolescent, insecure child controlled by selfishness and an “it’s all about me” worldview into an emotionally strong adult who is capable of cultivating life-giving relationships requires community. Learning to embrace and be embraced by a transgenerational, multi-ethnic people requires community.

Isn’t it time for you to Join Us?
For many applicants, a year to eighteen months seems like forever. Perhaps, but research indicates that unlearning old, toxic lifestyle patterns and learning new life-giving patterns requires a minimum of one year. The typical New Heart Place applicant began ingesting drugs and alcohol between the ages of twelve and fourteen. By the time that applicant is in his or her intake interview, a minimum of fifteen years have elapsed; fifteen years marked by pain, rejection, abandonment, broken family relationships, and, too often, encounters with the criminal justice system.
It’s time. It’s actually overtime.
Come join us. Call or email us. We’ll be delighted to send you an application.

“‘But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord.”
“‘I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will guide them and restore comfort to Israel’s mourners, creating praise on their lips. Peace, peace, to those far and near,’ says the Lord, ‘And I will heal them.'”
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
“He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his (Jesus) wounds you have been healed.“
1 Peter 2:24
“Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.”
“Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.“
“I will give you a new heart-I will give you new and right desires-and put a new spirit within you“
