Give the Gift
of a Second Chance
making the next right choice
Wrong choices can leave painfully deep wounds filled with broken dreams and shattered lives, but no matter the size of the wounds or the depth of the pain, there is hope.
At Inside Out Recovery we are not ashamed of our scars, our wounds, or our failures because we believe that God can cause them to be a source of strength and understanding as we quit telling ourselves lies and embrace honesty with God, ourselves, and others.
Believing in the power of a second chance
mission and goal
Our mission is to provide a safe transitional housing option in a Christ-centered atmosphere for those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program or who have been released from prison.
Our goal is to help educate, train and motivate each resident to find a positive, lasting solution to his problems.
Our staff is dedicated to providing a Christian atmosphere in which each resident can obtain the skills to be a positive contributing individual in our society. Each person is served according to his individual needs.
The Staff at Inside Out Recovery believes that there is no lasting recovery outside of a committed relationship with Jesus Christ.
Therefore, a strong spiritual foundation is essential to an effective program of recovery.
Inside Out Recovery employs Christian principles, sound biblical instruction and the Twelve Steps as the tools necessary for recovery from addictions and life-controlling issues.
Each person in the program plays a significant role in the day-to-day operations.
As a therapeutic community, we build new relationships and depend on each other for accountability, experience, strength, and hope.
why do we do it?
Our jails and prisons are full of men and women who have made mistakes and have no desire to change.
However, there are a few who have the desire, willingness and ability to change and not return to a life of destructive habits.
We are here to give them the opportunity, guidance and direction to be able to make the next right choice.
Our Core Programs Include:
The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through eight Recovery Principles and the Twelve Steps.
This experience allows us to be changed. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors.
This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.
As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
The Quest for Authentic Manhood
Welcome to The Quest for Authentic Manhood! The journey on which you are about to embark has energized and excited men from all over the world. Many have commented that these messages have blessed them with a new sense of their own masculine identity, giving them a personal manhood vision, as well as insight into what God had in mind when He first brought man into the world.
The Quest for Authentic Manhood sets out to answer some questions that are universal to men.
- What makes a man a man? A real man?
- How does one become a man?
- Is there a moment when it happens?
- What is it that holds men back from their true masculine destiny?
- How should authentic manhood express itself today?
Those are just some of the questions The Quest for Authentic Manhood will answer for you in specific ways that you, as a man, can get your arms around practically.
In the sessions we will have together, we will closely examine our development as men, the wounds which often hold men back, and how those wounds can be healed. We will discover the importance of male mentors for encouragement, the power of Dad, raising healthy sons and daughters, and the role of a man in marriage. Other topics we will address include the biblical definition of manhood, the different seasons of a man’s life, and how one “becomes a man!”
This journey is not for the faint of heart. It’s a steep climb at times. You will need discipline and teammates in the process. It will be challenging, soul-searching, and eye-opening. But by the end—as so many have experienced before you—you, too, will find a clearer, richer, and nobler masculinity for yourself. That’s a promise.
Like never before, our world needs men. Real men. Authentic men. Men, like Jesus, who possess life-giving spirits and righteous, warrior hearts. Are you ready? If so, tighten up those laces on your hiking boots and let’s begin our journey.
Winning at Work and Home
For most men happiness and satisfaction in life are locked up in two words— work and home. Together these two words capture the worlds that make up the bulls-eye of a man’s life. These arenas absorb most of a man’s time, talent, energy, effort, and creativity. Most importantly, no man can afford success in only one of these critical areas. The good life demands that he win in both.
For the next 16 weeks I want to help you elevate your game at home and in the workplace. I want to help you build (or rebuild) your confidence; expand your vision; develop successful life strategies; and improve your performance in your relationship with your wife or girlfriend, in your relationships with your children, and in your job!
In addition, I can guarantee you that along the way …
You will gain new insights and understanding about yourself that excite you.
You discover new ways of developing deeper communication, friendship, and intimacy with your wife or girlfriend.
You will receive a winning game plan for dealing with conflict, addressing money issues, and raising healthy sons and daughters.
You develop key moves for unleashing fresh, positive energy into your life at work and home.
You will learn life’s greatest success principle, and you have the opportunity to practice it.
All that and more await you. All that’s needed now is your commitment and courage to jump in and go the distance. Are you ready?
Work and home are clearly the “Super Bowls” of manhood. Real men know how to win in both!

CORE is an 11 week study on the essentials of biblical manhood. Each week, you’ll learn how to be a better man through live or video teaching and build relationships with other men through group discussions.
We live in a time where no common definition or vision for manhood exists. BetterMan is that common vision. We believe generations of men want to be good men; they want to be God’s man, but they do not know how. No one has shown them—no one has given them an example. BetterMan is filling that void.
We all have questions in life. Through the gospel of Jesus Christ, we find answers to our identity and purpose that fundamentally reorients everything about us. CORE’s eleven session dynamic study helps facilitate real discussion among real men about our real meaning, purpose, and passions in life.
Captivated by the clear, biblical vision of manhood, an entire generation of men is being unleashed to discover who they were created to be — and to create the better life they crave.
