Mercy House Ministries in Hurley, MS is a long-term, residential, faith-based program that ministers to men with drug and alcohol addictions, as well as other life-controlling issues. We minister to men ages 18 and above, many being in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and above and from all walks of life. Typically students are with us for 4 months after which they are transferred to a Teen Challenge program to complete the last 10 months of the program.
Mercy House’s program consists of three main parts: spiritual, academic and vocational. We provide students an environment condusive to learning and accomplishing self-discipline, as well as spiritual and personal growth. This gives students the opportunity to form a strong foundation of character and faith needed to face the many challenges and demands of everyday life.
The spiritual aspect of our program consists of chapel services (5 per week), daily prayer and devotion times, counseling provided by staff, and student-led Bible study.
Academically, the students are taught the foundational principles of Christian beliefs through Bible teachings and Bible-related classes.
Vocationally, our students are involved in a variety of different work programs which serve to instill a strong work ethic. These programs also teach basic job skills and how to be productive in a structured environment. Ultimately, this aspect of our program prepares and enables our students to enter the workforce and to become productive members of society by supporting themselves and their families.
