  The Program:
​  His Oaks is a smoke-free, alcohol-free, and drug-free environment. We allow appropriate medical prescriptions. We accept no state or federal monies for the program participation fee, and accept only adults (over 18 years of age). His Oaks does not accept payment from any health insurance programs.  Acceptance and continued participation in the program(s) offered is strictly at the discretion of His Oaks Ministries.

   A week at His Oaks consists of a blend of individual and group counseling/mentoring, small group class time, worship, and physical labor (i.e. property maintenance, animal chores, house chores, community service projects.) Living together in a home means that participants share in the chores and up keep of the property.  Spiritual Formation is a key component of this ministry.  Residents are expected to focus daily on a personal walk with Jesus Christ.  Daily Bible reading and small group participation are a requirement of the program.  
His Oaks Ministry is a Residential
Faith Based Opportunity For Men

a transformational process.  Our goal is to help you make a successful reentry into you family, church, and community.
  His Oaks is a faith-based program.  After acceptance of your application you will need to submit an initial acceptance fee. ($500.00)  We ask that this initial fee be paid by the candidate. (If at all possible)  Thereafter, we ask each participant to recruit a sponsor(s) that will contribute to your ongoing financial needs. The monthly amount each participant is asked to contribute is $450.00  Most partcipants have churches, family members or businesses that aid them in their monthly support.  That being said, we have never turned anyone away from lack of funds.

*  Honesty: Mutual trust is important. Complete honesty and openness is the goal as you begin to trust the process at His Oaks and the
    people placed in your life to help you.

*  Obedience: We request compliance to the guidelines and the authority structure. It is essential for us to be able to help you.
*  Commitment: The first 30 days of Introduction (Phase 1) is a time to establish relationships, to become familiar with the house and

    are able to help. Remaining in the program requires a commitment to continued personal transformation in character and conduct.

*  His Oaks Ministry is an explicitly Christian program to help men grow in their faith so that they will be set free of the strongholds
    that have sabatoged their life. Transformation is the goal which means that your current thoughts, emotions, and behaviors
    are exposed so that core beliefs about yourself, God, and others can change! (We believe for the better.)
*  As a participant, you must exhibit the character and conduct of a follower of Jesus Christ.
*  Staff provides supervision and accountability for you. Some might be younger and less experienced in some ways.
