Job Description:
Faith Farm Ministries: is a free, 9 month, faith-based, addiction recovery program with residential services for more than 350 men and women who have lost control of their lives due to alcohol or illegal and pharmaceutical drug addictions.

Faith Farm provides this residency program with all needs of the students met. The “free” aspect removes the financial hardship out of the 9 month commitment. The 9 month commitment removes the resident out of the environment and influences that may have contributed to their addiction(s). During the 9 months, they are cocooned in a loving environment with a staff that has a “Heart for the Hurting”. . . Many of the staff are successful graduates of the Faith Farm program. They understand what the residents are going through because they’ve once been there themselves. They are also motivated to bring the residents into the same victorious success that they now enjoy.

Faith Farm has Campus locations in Boynton Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Okeechobee, Florida: Our Pastors are unique individuals. Not only do they have to run their church as any pastor of any regular church, with all their services and outreach to the community, but they have to be so much more. They have a heart to help those students on the Farm who have struggled with past drug and alcohol addictions. They live on campus… among those they minister to and counsel.

It is our mission to help men and women establish a strong, personal spiritual foundation which allows them to rebuild their life and become a productive member of society.
