Mission Prayer Focus

Pivot Ministries is a Christian residential treatment program for men challenged by alcohol and substance abuse. Pivot's process transforms men from the self-centered life of addiction into a God-centered life of service. Many of students have graduated into leadership positions in their churches and communities, and have gone on to lead others to sobriety.

Pray for Pivot Ministries: 
​​​​​​​

* For the students to open their hearts to God’s love and to discover their worth as God’s beloved children. 
* To bless and encourage the staff as they teach, lead, nurture and inspire the students.  
* To widen the circle of support for the ministry so it can increase its service and influence in the community.
