Pastor John LaGalbo Testimony from Mt. Zion Christian Church

The Purpose

We desire, through Mt. Zion House, to introduce those who are in bondage to drugs, alcohol and any other life controlling addictions to the restorative power of Jesus Christ. With a commitment from each individual and with the Lord’s direction, we believe we can effectively minister in the area of their lives that need change.

Mt. Zion House has been established through prayer and uses only the word of God and His principles in all aspects of teaching. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

2 Tim. 3:16-17

The Program

When entering Mt. Zion House each person makes a minimum 26 week commitment.

Phase 1: The first four weeks is an in-house residential schedule which includes classes, group discussions, one-on-one discipleship, church attendance, work, meals, housing and recreation. We require a $700 deposit upon arrival to Mt. Zion House.

Phase 2: This phase consists of an eight-week transitional period in which each person is required to secure a full-time job and begin to fulfill his or her responsibility to pay for housing and food. They maintain the same schedule as Phase One when they are not working.

Phase 3: As the men or women prove themselves faithful they move into an twelve-week time period similar to Phase Two, where they have an opportunity to receive privileges.

The Facility

Mt. Zion House for men is located on a 15-acre parcel of land. The facility houses up to 24 men and includes a large kitchen, dormitory bedrooms, and a common room, as well as a chapel, classrooms and offices. The director’s and assistant director’s apartments are located in the same building.

For recreation, there is a gymnasium available at Mt. Zion Christian Church which is located just a few hundred yards away.
