As a professional in the field for over 30 years and Founder of a Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Center, I know firsthand of transformational work of New Heart Ministries. The need for such a solid Christ Centered program continues to grow as many do not succeed in long term recovery without a redeemed life of faith. The New Heart program is a proven curriculum and approach that sets the structure for success. I fully support New Heart and I know many lives has been saved and many more need to know the Hope and Freedom they can have. God is redeeming lives because of New Heart.”

There was a time, that many of us can remember, when Sunday services in most churches looked and smelled so clean and crisp and righteous. Everyone was in their Sunday best and on their best behavior, and on the surface there wasn’t a care in the world. It must have looked like an impenetrable barrier to broken and hurting people looking for some help and hope. And if they made it into our churches there must have been huge pressure to keep their issues to themselves and blend in with all the other righteous people.
At Westgate Chapel the tremendous blessing of a ministry like New Heart is that the broken and hurting don’t have to look in from the outside or pretend that they aren’t dealing with life-controlling issues. Our New Heart Monday Night ministry provides a caring environment where the broken and hurting have an entry point into the life of the church without feeling like they have to deal with their issues before they are welcomed into the family. When they are ready the transition from Monday night into the mainstream of our faith community is easy.
New Heart Place provides a residential discipleship environment for men who are walking out of their addictive behaviors. But the beauty of New Heart Place is the intentional integration of the men into the life of Westgate Chapel. The integration provides the men a family, caring relationships for a lifetime, and a faith community that celebrates their victories and will be there for them after they graduate from the program.
As our society continues to spiral out of control, and an increasing number of people are cast aside by the enemy, the local church has to have an answer. It has to be the answer. New Heart Ministries provide a marvelous environment for the church to respond to brokenness the way Jesus would.

“I unequivocally endorse New Heart Ministry. Few groups have demonstrated as much sensitivity, commitment and Holy Spirit-led compassion as the New Heart Ministry staff and volunteers. Practical in ministry orientation, caring in heart attitude, expansive in vision, New Heart Ministry deserves our profound gratitude for a multitude of works to lift those with life-controlling addictions out of their despair.
Changed lives are the currency of New Heart Ministry, created through spirit-led fervent prayer, abiding fellowship, mature discipleship, grace-filled accountability and practical life learning.
New Heart Ministry does not just strive to superficially help or lessen the pain of the broken and hurting, it gives them a life-changing opportunity to find the everlasting hope that we all need to live lives that honor the Living God.”
