Shield Ministries is a biblically based Christ-centered collaborative effort to reduce homelessness, re-offense, drug dependency; to promote wholeness of men with emphasis on the sex-offender population in the State of South Carolina.

The Mission of Shield Ministries is to teach men how to think, choose, and build correctly which promotes healing; to teach life skills to help men overcome obstacles by using biblical based principals and mentorship to promote accountability and responsibility; and to provide residential stability; of which all reduces recidivism.

Jobs for Life is one of the life skills classes that the Participants of Shield Minsitries complete.  Shield Ministries was one of the Charleston area Jobs for Life sites selected by the 12 Neighbors Project in their world-wide search in "What does it really mean to be a neighbor."  William Brinson, former participant and Board of Director member Rhinehard Grab are pictured below.
