“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
In 2014, Fishers of Men was able to purchase a property in Rochedale South. This is being utilised as the “second stage” for men who have successfully progressed through the first stage program, Lorimer. It has proved to be a great addition to the program for men who are ready for the next level of independent living, while still being supported externally as necessary. The progression motivates, with many of the men in second stage stepping into study, work, or assisting at the first stage as helpers/leaders. Admission into the second stage residence is considered on a case by case basis and usually after completing 6 months in the first stage program.
Thanks to a few grants as well as generous donations, we have been able to transform the house from 3 bedrooms to 5 bedrooms plus a study with a double carport just completed.
