Home Living Coordinators, Navajo BIC Mission (Bloomfield, N.M.)
The Overcomers Program began at Navajo BIC Mission in Bloomfield, New Mexico, in 1997. It's an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program directed primarily, but not exclusively, to Navajo men who have succumbed to the ravages of addiction. The program is for a duration of six month, consisting of a three-month intensive residential session followed by three months of aftercare followup. There are two sessions per year: one in the Spring and one in the Autumn. The program combines a clinical approach with a Scriptural base and has a success rate upwards of 70 percent.
The Overcomers Program requires two Home Living Coordinator couples for each session. It is an exciting, rewarding, and intense people-to-people ministry. It's really all about making friends and building relationships with men who have mostly known only brokenness and dysfunction in their lives. The Home Living Coordinators are an essential element of the program. It is an opportunity to do the most elemental aspect of our faith by reaching out to others who are hurting and seeking a helping hand.
We are actively recruiting prospects for future sessions and would like to develop a list of potential recruits for the years ahead. The need is great—some may even say urgent or desperate. Do you feel God calling you to a larger Kingdom-building role? Does investing in the lives of others and watching God change lives motivate and thrill you? If so, prayerfully consider a three-month term of service to build relationships that will echo in eternity.
Spring 2016 Overcomers Program
February 22nd–May 20th
Fall 2016 Overcomers Program
August 22nd–November 18th
