Life Transformation Ministry

Why a “Life Transformation Ministry”? The answer lies in the needs of those Cookeville Rescue Mission (CRM) serves. The people we serve are in dire need of life transformation. Many are addicted. Most have been abused and neglected, but all the nearly 1,000 people that come through our doors every year are lost, hurting, broken, and without hope. What CRM can provide is a Life Transformation Ministry that is carefully planned and designed to achieve a particular goal. The goal of the Life Transformation Ministry (LTM) is the thorough and dramatic change in the lives of the people that come through our doors. By delivering the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ, teaching practical ways of applying scripture to daily living and recovery the Holy Spirit may lead those to a restored and transformed life. People will leave CRM as what Paul called, “…a new creation…” (2 Cor. 5:17). “Change is a process, not an event.” Therefore, some will progress slower and some faster. However, through this therapeutic community and holistic approach of renewing minds, rebuilding bodies, and refreshing souls, H.O.P.E. can be given.

Healing power of Jesus Christ

Opportunities for healing, to learn, grow and give

Purpose in life and passion for a new life through Jesus

Encouragement gained from others and shared with others

Through the Life Transformation Ministry, these goals can be accomplished, and more, by making real disciples, students, and followers of Jesus who will carry His message of hope and healing back into our community and families. We lay before you a ministry on a mission with you and for you towards transformation through Christ.
