At bpChurch, we want to meet the needs of people in our community, both physically and spiritually. In order to do this effectively, we partner with other local organizations that are already making an impact! This is a list of ministries that we support or members of our congregation volunteer with.
What is Freedom House Ministries?
Freedom House is a faith-based residential recovery program for people desiring to find freedom from addictions and life-controlling problems. Our focus on developing consistent Christian character and a strong work ethic results in restored relationships and productive citizens who contribute to their community.
Those attending Freedom House Ministries learn the cause of their addictions from a Christian perspective. At Freedom House, students are encouraged to turn to God as their hope for change. Individuals are given the opportunity to establish and improve their relationship with God through private study and prayer, daily devotions, chapel services, and Biblical counseling.
During their year of training students also have opportunities to apply Biblical principles in work and daily routine.

Since incorporation in 1986, Open House Ministries has provided shelter, safety, and hope to families without homes. Our program focus is to equip families with life skills and foundational tools to help them regain healthy, independent lives. We accomplish this through personalized case management, strong community networks, volunteer support, and the generous endowments of our caring community. At the heart of our program is the recognition that overcoming issues of homelessness requires time and transitional support. Since the shelter is privately funded, we are able to offer services and support beyond the 60 days associated with tax-supported programs.

Bringing you Hope through God's Redemptive work in the Gospel
Sometimes our world turns upside down and we find ourselves in the midst of loss, pain, hardship or conflict. Maybe we sense loneliness, isolation, anger, uncertainty.

At Redemptive Coaching we provide the support and look to the gospel of Jesus Christ and His Word for answers to the hard questions. We help you to align your thinking biblically, putting Jesus at the core of your beliefs and trust God to enable you to change your heart and behavior.

Mentoring and supporting teen moms
More than 20 years ago, Young Life answered God’s call to run headfirst into the chaos of teenage motherhood with the hope of Jesus ... and YoungLives was born.
YoungLives has never wavered from the original vision to reach teen moms by entering their world, modeling the unconditional love of Christ, and encouraging them to become the women and mothers God created them to be. Through Young Life’s time-tested methods and life-on-life mentoring, teen moms are empowered to make positive choices, set and achieve goals, and live a future rooted in Christ.
