Celebrate Recovery was founded in 1991 by Pastor John Baker of Saddleback Church with the goal of overcoming habits like sex disorders and drug addictions with a twelve-step program based on Christian principles. Other churches and some prisons implemented the program, and as of March 2004 more than 150,000 people are said to have participated. At the Faith-Based and Community Initiative Conference in 2004, U.S. President George W. Bush praised Celebrate Recovery as being able to "change hearts" where government cannot.
Men's Transitional Housing Facility
Shield Ministries provides housing for men who are homeless as a result of their past criminal record. Applicants go through an intake process in which restrictions and program rules are clearly communicated. The intake process is designed to assess the individual's desire for personal growth that will enable self-sufficiency. Housing is limited to those who are enrolled and actively participate in the Shield Ministries Program.
Each facility is managed by a Resident House Manager. Random drug testing is administered frequently. Random inspections are also made by Shield Ministries and by Probation, Pardon, & Parole Services.
Weekly housing program fees of $85.00 per week are due each Friday. Shield Ministries accepts referrals from local Probation, Pardon, and Parole services, Veteran's Administration, Department of Corrections, Charleston County Sheriff's Office, & Trident United Way.
Worship Service & Bible Study
An interdenominational adult worship service is held every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. for adult men. This service, although not exclusively for offenders, provides a safe environment that promotes freedom in worship.
