The mission of Resting Arms Ministries is to serve hurting people trapped by addiction or trauma. We provide hope, healing and freedom in an atmosphere of grace, love and compassion reflective of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

His Resting Arms is a Christ-centered residential facility for people with trauma and addictions. It is a one-year program focusing on establishing our identity in Christ, conquering our issues through prayer and scripture, and finishing up with a discipleship component to prepare our residents to go forth as warriors for Christ.

We have an old WWII generator that used to work. It probably would work with a little care as it has not been started for many years.  We are looking for someone who could get it working again.
