U-Turn For Christ is a residential rehab for men trapped in the deceptive, never-ending cycle of addiction. The facility in Payson, Arizona offers a Christian Discipleship Re-entry program, which provides residents with the opportunity to give back to the community as they recover from drug and alcohol addiction. U-Turn’s goal is to teach men to be independent, self-supporting and stable under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, so they may become assets to family, church, friends. employers, schools and society.

I came to U-Turn For Christ in July of 1995, thinking I was going to stay for two months, get sober, and move on to whatever God had for me next. I didn’t know what God had for me next was to serve in this ministry, and I truly count it a privilege. In November of ’99 I was ordained a Pastor and I now serve as the Associate Pastor to Pastor Gerry Brown. Through the years I’ve witnessed God’s miraculous work in restoring lives, marriages, and families; including my own. I’ve had the honor of helping set up ministries for U-Turn For Christ in Tennessee, Kenya, and Thailand, before I was married. In 2008, I met my beautiful wife, Evelyn, and we wed April of the following year. She also serves, assisting Peggy Brown with Women’s Ministry. My hope and vision for this ministry is, if the Lord tarries, that my Pastor’s vision will be fulfilled in having a U-Turn For Christ in every State, discipling and restoring those who are trapped in the sin of addiction.More
I was introduced to the ministry of U-Turn For Christ in 1998 by my parents who were referred through Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa. On October 21st 1998, I entered the ministry and just like many of the men and women who enroll everyday, my life was a mess and I could not do anything on my own strength to change. I’m one of the thousands of men and women who have come to this ministry and that have had the Lord do the miracle that only He can do. I married my beautiful wife, Rosie, in December of 1998, after graduating Phase-1; and have three beautiful daughters, Brittany 15, Kaitlyn 13, and Alicia 6. I now have the privilege of watching the Lord perform that same miracle in the lives of the men and women who enroll today, as He did in me 15 years ago, serving as the Administrator and Assistant Pastor. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Ephesians 3:20.More
