Jim Summers (OMA Founder)

It Began with Myself

Not everyone needs a program to find their way through life.  But for those who do, God has placed OMA here to assist.

I found myself as a struggling, lost sinner forty something years ago.  I knew I needed to change or I would die.  I found the strength to do that when I called out to God.

Many men don’t know how to do that.  They have become so steeped in their sinful ways that they cannot go forth in strength and power or change the things around them for the better.

God scooped me up out of my mess, cleaned my heart and mind up and began to plant His desire in my heart.  That desire is now reality of a men’s facility where we assist them to find the right way to be in relationship with God, others and their community.

Grace is the only way to explain God’s way of dealing with any of us.  His grace comes because of His love.  We live that and pray to show that to the men who enter this program.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Outreach Ministries is a non-profit ministry. We will have a screening process, but we require no payment. We rely on the generosity of our donators to fund our ministry. You may send in donations if you wish, but we will never require them in any way!

How long does the program last?

This will depend on how the student does throughout his time here. Some students may need to stay longer if they do not feel they could control their addictions upon leaving the ministry. Our staff will evaluate students every few months to see how they’ve progressed. However, A student may quit and leave whenever they want. There’s no point in keeping them here if they do not wish to be here.

What kind of addictions do you work with?

We mainly work with drug and alcohol abuse, but we have dealt with a plethora of different addictions. We also sometimes accept men with sexual/pornographic addictions as well. Our ministry is meant to isolate these men from their addictions and then disciple them during that time.

Will the person be able to visit friends and family?

We have days (Like Mission Sunday) where families can come to Church and eat a lunch with the student. Students will also get leave days where they can go home for a few days and be with their families (They will not receive leave days for the first few months of being here).
