08-10-2016 Around Pasadena: Christian sober-living 'village' expanding

 Pasadena Christian sober-living 'village' seeks aid for expansion

When Greg Anderson opened his first Christian sober-living home in Pasadena in 2007 he had no plans for expansion.

In the years since, The Way Homes "village," as he calls it, has blossomed into a tight-knit community housing 30 residents. The six homes are located within feet of each other with six adjacent lots available for future growth.

He credits the expansion to his faith in Christ.

"How do you make that happen, even if you want it to happen," Anderson asked. "God."

The Way Homes Ministry provides a drug and alcohol free environment for men and women who have committed to a 12-step program with Jesus Christ as their higher power. A few residents have gone through rehab or jail, some have been sober for years, while others never struggled with substance abuse.

"They must, above anything, be clean and sober," Anderson declared. "We're not a rehab house."

There is no time limit for residents at The Way Homes, some stayed for years.

"When you move in here, this becomes your home," he said. Each client has their own bedroom and shares a semi-private bathroom.

Residents are also required to attend one Celebrate Recovery meeting, one prayer and share meeting, and commit to two hours of community service - each week. In addition, they must pay a nominal weekly fee.

Even though residents pay to live at The Way Homes, it is not enough to cover all the expenses, Anderson said, which can include transportation, upkeep and oversight. The ministry relies heavily on donations from individuals and multiple churches.

"We need funding in every area," he said. The ministry is always seeking volunteers to work to maintain and improve the grounds.

"We don't need ideas, we need workers," Anderson said.

There are three pastors who act as ministry leaders; they share 100 years of sobriety.

"They were addicts, now they're pastors and helping us with our ministry," Anderson said. A half-dozen more pastors provide additional support.

Ongoing expansion

A women's addition is being constructed onto an existing building. It is nearing completion and includes two bathrooms and four bedrooms, which will house four more women. The addition is scheduled for completion next month.

Behind the homes is a recently cleared area that will eventually become a memorial garden dedicated to people who have died from their battle with drugs and alcohol. The area is already being used by residents and the community as a sanctuary for prayer and reflection. In the future, Anderson hopes to install name plaques and benches which will be surrounded by plants and flowers.

Anderson's son, Nicholas John Anderson, died from a heroin overdose last year. To honor his son's life, he plans to name the memorial park after him.

"I thank God for his life," he said. However, additional funding is needed to complete the project.

Anderson acknowledges his son's struggles led him to his first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in 1999. After participating in 12-step meetings, Anderson realized drinking had damaged his life. He made the decision to live alcohol free in 2000 Since then, he has been devoted to helping others learn this way of life.

"If it wasn't for Nick, I wouldn't have gone through my first AA meeting," he said.

He was inspired to open a different type of sober-living facility in 2006 after driving someone to a recovery home that was not Christ-centered. Anderson, and his wife, Sheri, built and opened their first Christian sober home in 2007; their second home was constructed in November 2008. In June 2009, the couple built their third sober-living home.

Anderson does not collect a paycheck.

"We don't take a nickel," he said.

When the ministry is in-need of money, he and his wife foot the bill. The homes have one paid full-time employee, Larry Shortt an on-site ministry overseer, who provides everything from transportation to maintenance, and one paid part-time employee.

Every Thursday from 8 to 9:30 a.m., The Way Homes Ministry, 3606 Mountain Road, hosts a prayer and share meeting. The meeting starts with worship music. Next, participants introduce themselves and share a little about their lives. Then, testimonies or scripture are shared, along with a topic for discussion. Finally, Anderson takes prayer requests and the group prays together.

Last week, Anderson shared with the group that he has many things weighing on his mind. Despite being concerned about his business, called Painting with Pride, his mother's illness, or how to pay the bills for the new addition, Anderson says he meditates on Philippians 4:4, which reminds him not to worry.

"We don't have to be afraid, we don't have to be scared," he told the group, "all we have to do is finish well."

03-04-2016 A Tribute to Kevin Spence

posted Mar 4, 2016, 1:05 PM by The Way Homes Inc Sober Living Ministry   [ updated Mar 18, 2017, 5:58 AM ]

I, Greg,  woke up this morning and just felt the need to thank all those dedicated to Laboring along side us at TWH's ministry.  Especially Pastor Kevin Spence who for 36+ years has devoted much time and energy walking through this journey of Christ Centered Recovery with countless numbers of men and women. We are Blessed to have Pastor Kevin solidly behind TWH's ministries and for the past almost 6 years leading Restorations Covenant Church in Millersville Maryland.

Pastor Kevin's life is non-stop devotion to the lost. He runs Celebrate Recovery meetings on Saturday, a step meeting where all new comers are welcomed on Mondays, is often at Prayer & Share on Thursdays, hosts small groups on Wednesdays, Gathers with other Pastors and leaders on Tuesdays, does Recovery based meeting at the jail on Mondays, commits himself to being at his home group several times a week where he meets many who are ready to start a journey in recovery and Christ. This is a very incomplete list of his schedule.

Pastor Kevin is Building God's Church. One lost soul at a time.

The Way Homes are so Blessed to have many devoted leaders within our circle of influence but none Bless us more than our friend, mentor, and spiritual leader. God Bless you Pastor Kevin Spence as you travel this road doing all you can to seek and Love the lost.

If you want to know more about what is happening at TWH's and how you can help, call Greg at 410-599-4003.
If you would like to meet Pastor Kevin join him at Worship Service every Sunday at 10:00 at Restoration Covenant Church, Veterans Hwy, Brightview Business Center, Millersville MD.

02-19-2016 January 2016 Update

posted Feb 19, 2016, 4:46 PM by The Way Homes Inc Sober Living Ministry   [ updated Mar 18, 2017, 5:57 AM ]

ON January 1st 2016 The Way Homes ended our 5 ½ year lease on the corner where we ran a thrift store and the Ladies home and our office and Meeting room. It was a wonderful and often stressful period where great things happened but never helped us to further our devotion to helping men and women in The Way we envisioned. So we have returned to the original vision and are once again pouring all our efforts into providing wonderful homes for men and women in Christ Centered recovery. We want to thank all who donated much time and items that helped us make the corner a success in many ways.

So what is happening now?

God has gone before us in amazing ways. His timing is perfect and He never allows a setback unless He is setting up a comeback. That has happened. Leaving The Corner we lost our Meeting Room, Office and most important our Ladies Home. God has provided all.

First, we were able to purchase a small house in our little block of homes which we modified for a small office and meeting room where we will continue to host Prayer & Share, Youth for Christ and Friday night big book meetings along with other gatherings during the week.

Second, one of our neighbors offered TWHs his home at a greatly reduced price that allowed the women to have their own Christ Centered Home right in the middle of our little community of homes. Praise God!

Our greatest need at this time is to raise funds so that we can add a 4 Bedroom and 2 Bath addition on to the Women’s home where at the present time there are 4 women in the tiny 3 bedroom home. We have drawn up a plan that will make it a 6 Bedroom Home with one of the Bedrooms becoming a common room for computer use and quiet time.

We are hoping to start this project very soon. We need an architect who can draw up a set of plans that will secure the proper building permits. We also hope some people can make donations or lend us the funds in way of notes that will help us complete this project by spring of this year.

God Bless all who love and support this amazing work.

Our love and appreciation to each and every one of you!

All of us at The Way Homes
