Men’s Transformation Program

Jerry Gatton

The primary purpose of the Men’s Transformation Program is to help men develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, while also restoring them to healthy self-sufficiency as godly, contributing members of society. A safe living environment is provided for the men as they learn leadership skills, accountability, punctuality, how to follow instructions, and how to value accomplishment. Men also learn to become valuable assets in today’s job market through life and job skills training that includes financial management, computer and various trade skills.

Jerry Gatton is the Life Transformation Director and Men’s Program Manager

Men’s Residence

Duplex

The Mission has a duplex for men that have completed and graduated from the program. The purpose of this residence is to provide a home for post-graduates to begin returning to the working world drug-free, while still remaining close to the Mission’s support system and services.

HOUSEWARMING PARTY

The duplex is new to us and completely empty! We are inviting all our Mission Friends to join us for a VIRTUAL HOUSEWARMING PARTY. Let’s make this new residence a true home for these graduates of the Life Transformation program.

Join our party by downloading the Housewarming Needs list (please only new or very gently used items). Contact Jerry at jerry@ougm.org or 360.709.9725 regarding what you would like to provide from the list of needs.

No need to wrap!

The Mission also operates the Jeremiah House for men. Men in this transformation program learn valuable life and work skills while breaking the bondage of addictions or other life-controlling issues.

Men’s Work Program

An essential element of the Life Transformation Program is teaching the men solid Christian ethical work standards while learning as a team to accomplish a common goal.  The Men’s Work Program was adopted for the men to learn and work in a God-centered work environment.  The following services are offered: yard maintenance, interior and exterior painting, power washing, moving, house cleaning, and snow removal.

To help the Men’s Work Program be successful in building men’s lives, we ask for $11 per hour per person. You may also donate what you can if you are on a limited income.

For more information or to hire one or more of the men, call the Mission at 360.709.9725.
