BREAKING THE CYCLE OF DESTRUCTION
FINDING HOPE IN THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL
REACH Restoration is a faith-based discipleship program for men who have made decisions that have led to destructive behaviour in their own lives, as well as negatively affecting the lives of those around them. This residential program offers hope of restoration as we point the student to the Cross of Christ and the new life Jesus brings.
Unlike popular beliefs and myths, we do not maintain that this destructive lifestyle is purely related to sickness or a disease from which there is no known cure. Rather we believe that a complete and whole restoration is possible because of the redemptive work of Christ on the cross. Our hearts are idol factories and point us in all kinds of deceptive directions.
Ultimately these wrong paths lead only to self-destruction. Drugs and self-help gurus may help for a time, but they do not provide the ultimate answers. It is only once we better understand ourselves, our heart’s desires, and our saving God, that we can begin the journey to a new and full life. With REACH Restoration, we learn to turn to God by choosing Christ and the Kingdom of God both as present help and eternal destination.
We offer discipleship, counselling, accountability and a safe space to build a path to a restored and productive life. Our program is overseen by a board of directors and falls under the spiritual oversight of Emmanuel church, Port Elizabeth.
Founder - REACH Restoration
Hi I’m Ronny and I’ve committed my life and my will into the care of God. This was not always the case as I was born into a family of alcoholism and addiction. At the age of 4 I was sent to a children’s home and there started my education in the art of manipulation and deception.
At the age of 16 I was an addict and by the time I was 20 years of age I was in prison. I had never known a father’s love and care, in actual fact I looked up to criminals as my mentors.
One fateful day, while still in prison, God rescued me and loved me. It was then that I realized that he is my Father full of grace and mercy. I accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour and have never returned to addiction or crime.
I am currently part of the ministry team at Emmanuel and REACH Restoration where we offer addicts the opportunity to come to know Christ as their saviour and Lord.
