Straight Way Ministry is a ministry that operates under the Board of Directors and under the 501c3 umbrella of North Austin Christian Church.
Straight Way Ministry is a live-in discipleship ministry. Men who have professed a desire to change their lives, agree to commit themselves to this twenty-four hour, seven day a week discipleship program. We believe that spiritual transformation is the fundamental need to live free from addictions and failures of past lives.
These men sleep in a dorm setting, rise to pray, eat, study scripture, work in their own care, receive counseling and serve others throughout the day. They follow a schedule throughout every day and night. Most of these men are coming out of a life of homelessness and/or out of incarceration.
Straight Way Ministry will feed, clothe and house these men at no cost to them. They will get counseling and spiritual training during the first six months. They will not work during this time other than volunteering in helping others through the Heaven’s Harvest food bank. After these months, the men will be helped to find a job during the day. They will be accountable for the money they earn and how they succeed at work.
After a one year period, the men will graduate from the program and begin independent living. It is believed that this year of commitment will reduce prison recidivism and help these men to avoid falling back into addictions and homelessness. In this year of discipleship, these men will have the opportunity not only to get a sustaining job, but also to enter training and education to improve their productivity in society. We attempt to stay in relationship with the men who complete the program through personal and church interactions.
