Fishers of Men has over 100 volunteers from a variety of Churches within the Logan area. Volunteers range from doctors/solicitors to pensioners, all contributing their time freely for the benefit of others and supporting them through difficult times with a view to permanent rehabilitation. Bobby Mearns, the chairman of the board, was himself a heroin addict for over 20 years before he became a Christian in a rehabilitation programme run much like "Lorimer" in Hong Kong by Jackie Pullinger. Bobby lived in their residential service for 2 years and become a leader, he has been "clean" now for over 20 years.
“Lorimer” is run with the same guiding principles as the house Bobby was rehabilitated at. We aim to direct people away from their life-controlling behaviours, and focus them instead on Christ, to the point that they can be free, and in turn help others.
