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.

  • It is OFFICIAL! We now own 58 Sherman Street! So much to do, but we are super-excited.  Someone asked recently if they could sponsor a room.  Absolutely! There are plenty.
  • Thank you for the kingdom helpers who was here on Saturday, August 9th. We got so much done!  Here's a list... demo work on property, cutting trees, brush and cleaning fenceline, painting stairs, registers, sprinklers and a room, mudding, cleaning and cooking, weed whacking and mowing.  It was a pleasure meeting new faces and being encouraged!
  • Thank you Jeremiah's Corner and the Patten Community for the benefit concert on August 7th to support Resting Arms Ministries. Much love to you all!  Chuck Loucka and singers were fantastic!
