Mission & Purpose
Penfield Christian Homes is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization which has been operating for the past 30 years (Established in 1979) carrying out its mission to "Reclaim Alcohol and Drug Addicted Men Through Christ and Christian Love." We now serve over nine hundred men per year, additionally providing support and counseling for their families. The program at Penfield is a six week cyclical program teaching Science Based Recovery as well as Relapse Prevention from a Christian perspective. We endorse cultural diversity and do not discriminate against anyone for any reason. Penfield Christian Homes has campuses located in Greene County, Walker County, and Berrien County.
Penfield Christian Home was born out of a vision of Penfield Baptist Church and the Georgia Baptist Association. Penfield is a ministry of the Georgia Baptist Convention, falling under the Associational Missions division. The Program Director and Assistant Program Director are employees of the Georgia Baptist Convention while the remaining employees are employed by Penfield Christian Home. This partnership allows us to more effectively address the needs of men caught up in the throes of addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
Addiction is a lifestyle related health problem with biological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual dimensions. The mission and ministry of Penfield Christian Homes are to address the whole person. The biology of addiction is centered in the brain. Our brain response set by genetics determines our response to addictive chemicals. These responses determine our predisposition to addiction. A euphoric response with our first use of alcohol or drugs will create a desire to use again. Our quantity and frequency of use increases and we develop social and psychological dependence. Eventually we become physically dependent. In this process we make choices that harm us spiritually, making us feel unworthy of love and unable to accept God's love and help. Through Christ and Christian love that broken relationship with God is restored and the biological, psychological, sociological issues are addressed utilizing best practices of the addiction profession and biblical counseling.
Penfield Counselors present science-based recovery and relapse prevention from a Christian perspective. Counselors at Penfield are called by God to the addiction ministry. They are qualified addiction professionals certified by state and national organizations.
