About the Ministry

Lazarus Life Ministries is a Christ-centered addiction recovery ministry.  We seek to transform and restore the lives of men who are caught in the clutches of drug & alcohol addiction. We believe that Jesus Christ provides true freedom and redemption from substance abuse.


  It is our vision to establish a discipleship house in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, where men will be introduced to a relationship with Christ, mentored through a process of restoration, and equipped to re-enter society as whole,  productive, and responsible men of God. 


Any man (18+) who is sincere about making a life change is eligible to apply for this program. There will be an intake process to determine if Lazarus is the right place for each applicant.  Men will need a desire to be drug free, a willingness to abide by the ministry's standards, and an openness to the possibility of Christ working in their lives. Orientation is every Monday at 10:00 AM located at 100 E. High Street, Mount Vernon, OH, 43050)

looking into distance


Lazarus is a residential recovery program that is free of charge and requires no insurance. This is not a lock down facility or a halfway house. It is a voluntary discipleship ministry that involves Bible study, leadership development, work experience, and relationship building. Each man is mentored throughout the entire process.  Lazarus is privately funded.


We are located in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. We currently have one residential location that is able to house 4-5 men and plan on expanding this vision as God allows.  We also work closely with other Christ-centered recovery programs in Ohio. If Lazarus is not a great fit for you, we are more than willing to provide you with any other resources that might be a better fit for you.
