The Spiritual Growth Center
Victory Gospel Chapel of Norfolk, VA
Our ministry is ordained by God to target individuals that have been overtaken by drugs, alcohol, gangs, prostitution and various social problems. Through the knowing power of Jesus Christ men and women are set free are no longer committed to the bondage of sin! They become accountable and responsible men and women of God that are taught to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Our Spiritual Growth Center house's, clothes, and feeds all residents at No Charge! It doesn't just stop there; they are provided with all the necessities needed to maintain everyday living such as; detergent, bleach, toilet paper, soap, male/female hygiene products etc. These necessities will be provided for them until they are able to do so for themselves. The Spiritual Growth Center is comprised of Two Phases.
Phase One "In-House Treatment"
Phase One is an "In House" six month minimum stay program where the in house residents make a commitment to stay for the six month period and learn how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This phase is essential in the residents growth because it teaches them how to be accountable, responsible , trustworthy and so many other life skills that are needed to be productive in their communities and their families. We know that the solution to any problem is Jesus Christ!!! While in Phase One residents attend daily Bible classes, group drug classes and one-on-one counseling sessions. We believe in the "hands on approach" of teaching God's word. Furthermore we teach the residents to trust the Lord and not in themselves and believe that God has a future of hope and success for them. The Lord has blessed us with a 85% success rate with residents.
Phase Two "Work Release"
Phase Two is also a six month minimum stay program, in this phase we assist the individual in finding employment. This phase is also very essential to the residents for various reasons. Money management is very important in today's society in order to be productive. We teach the residents how to be accountable and responsible with there finances; we encourage them to obtain a bank account so they are able to budget and do the right thing when they go back to their community and families. Upon the ending of their six month stay we help them in their search of finding affordable housing for them to live.
