PIVOT MINISTRIES




PIVOT MINISTRIES, INC. is a not for profit (EIN 06-0839030) Christ centered, Bible based, drug and alcohol rehabilitation program for men. Pivot Ministries’ mission is to treat not only drug and alcohol addiction as a spiritual problem; but the whole man, spirit, soul, and body. We consider the men to be cured, when they have an intimate relationship with Jesus and have overcome their addictions. We desire to see our graduates return to society, ready to assume the daily responsibilities of life, while living for Christ. We believe that,” if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2Corithians 5:17 NIV

Pivot Ministries is a Christian residential outreach program for men struggling with substance abuse. PIVOT welcomes men from every background. PIVOT does not employ the use of substitutive drugs in the rehabilitation process. But rather offers a structured, supportive environment where men learn acceptance, discipline and love through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. PIVOT MINISTRIES desires to help the men on more than just a spiritual level. The men who come into PIVOT are ministered to on a spiritual, emotional, and physical level.
· The men’s spiritual needs are met by using Christian based Biblical principles.
· Their emotional/psychological needs are met through one-on-one and group counseling.
· Their physical needs are met through traditional medical intervention and use of the facilities of the YMCA in Norwalk and Bridgeport.

The men who come to PIVOT receive immediate shelter, orientation and evaluation in our center in Bridgeport. After 3-4 months there, they are transferred to our residence in Norwalk, where they will spend an additional 3-4 months. Many of the residents who come into our care have been homeless; some are referred to us by local churches, and others are court appointed. The men who complete their studies at Pivot are now eligible to continue their discipleship training at the Teen Challenge Training Center in Rehrersburgh, PA. Upon successful completion of a 12 month Christian program either at Pivot, Teen Challenge or any other Christian ministry, graduates are eligible to enter the Alonzo Smalls Re-Entry home. It is there where the graduates will gradually re-acclimate to society, living a drug free Christian life.

We need someone who would be willing to assist us in season grant writing. The time and effort to accomplish this would be voluntary. Also volunteers to tutor the men with general education diploma requirements, (GED) and Bible teachers are needed as well. We encourage your congregation visit our facilities. Appointments for tours of either our Bridgeport or Norwalk homes can be arranged by calling our office.

Your Servant in Christ’s Name,

Rev. David B. Smith
Executive Director
