Men’s Shelter

The Lebanon Rescue Mission provides a 12 month Biblical Rehabilitation Program centered around developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is to return men to the world as godly individuals capable of contributing to society. In addition, our Transient Ministry offers food, work accommodations and general services to men in need of shelter.

Men's ShelterNova Learning Center
The Nova program has been designed with an independent learning component. After an initial diagnostic assessment, students are individually placed at level where they can perform without the stress of competition or fear of failure. Because the Nova program uses computer technology and self-instructional  curriculum, and places an emphasis on learning rather than teaching, students are able to accelerate their learning process and to assume responsibility for their own education.  With immediate positive feedback and rewards for accomplishment, it also dramatically improves the self-worth and self-confidence of students.

Poem written by B.L. Shelley,
Discipleship Program Resident

What Kind of Thanks
Oh Lord, my Lord, thank you for who you are!
You spread the lights across the sky, You know every star.
As I look around this universe and out into space,
I stand in awe of You creation with everything in its place.
I see the mighty constellations, withholding not a gaze,
Ah, there goes a shooting star or comet all ablaze.
When I look into the heavens, how far do they span?
I feel like a speck of dust, in the palm of Your hand.
With this awesome world around us, and You in control,
What kind of thanks to You, Oh Lord, can I bestow?

B.L. Shelley
