Christian Education / Job Training
Restore Texas Ministries is a men’s live in, Christian trade school and life restoration ministry teaching life skills, job training and addiction recovery curriculum. We provide a healthy supportive community with rules, boundaries, accountability and love to help each man develop personal discipline, and confidence to overcome life struggles. Daily devotions, Bible study and sit-down evening meals help build spiritual and personal relationships.
We help the men get into the habit of having a spiritual life. All men attend church on Sunday mornings and most Saturday nights.
Monday - Friday the men start out with a 6:30 am devotional. This helps focus their attention on important things and helps them in building character.
Mentoring: Practical Guidance
The purpose of mentoring is to help men tap into the knowledge of those with more experience than themselves and learn faster than they would on their own. Every man has individual needs and a mentor can help them to navigate through life's challenges. Mentors provide friendship and guidance with practical matters including preparing for employment, spiritual growth, family relationships, money management and more.
Equipping Men for Employment
Restore Texas Ministries (RTM) teaches through on-the-job training. We build and make things, do maintenance, and real work that people pay for. This is how the trade school is funded.
RTM teaches men to become financially self-supporting enabling men to support themselves and their families. We teach job skills by doing actual work that the community needs and pays for. Men learn on-the-job skill-building on job sites from other skilled men and their supervisors.
Graduates that applied themselves to their work left RTM with job training, a car, a job, and an apartment.
