MTC August Graduation

Thursday, August 2nd is a day that marks the start of a new beginning for 2 men and a day of promotion for two more. Tony and Chris completed the Men’s program at The Haven, and in celebration, we held a graduation ceremony to commemorate their journey. 


The Lord has had a plan for Tony and Chris and has known them before they were born. As Psalm 139:16 says, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” The Lord knew us. He knows our sin and yet loved us so much that He sent His Son to die for us while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8). This is the truth that Pastor and former Rescue Mission Program Director spoke on that night. He said, “I believe with all my heart that there’s acceptance here at the Haven of Rest” and He spoke on the God who accepts us wholly and asks us to be wholly His. 

What wonderful truth to rejoice in! May we always cling to Christ with our whole being looking ahead to eternity with Him. Thankful for Pastor Phil, the volunteers who made the food for the evening, and for all of our partners in ministry that give to The Haven. This celebration would’ve never happened without your support!

And lastly, we are grateful for our time with Tony and Chris and look forward to continue encouraging them as they enter into their new careers and planting themselves back into the community as lights for Christ.
