spiritual growth

"Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." Colossians 2:8


Spiritual Growth is one of four core components of our residential program at Hope Harbor.  We are an interdenominational Christian program. We believe in a saving faith centered on Jesus Christ, and we defer to the Bible for direction and clarity.


We desire to help teens in our program walk in relationship that they choose with the Lord Jesus Christ. Our staff has made a personal choice to commit to Christ, and we naturally walk out our faith as an example to our residents in all we do. This genuine lifestyle allows an environment where the Holy Spirit is welcomed and present, drawing others to Him for real heart change.  


The freedom to choose a personal relationship with Christ is an essential part of faith. No one can force a walk with the Lord. Healing through Christ is encouraged in this Christian program, and as others see the freedom offered through the Father they are given the opportunity to choose their walk for themselves.


We offer a number of spiritual growth initiatives to guide our residents in their faith and healing journey, including:
