We are doing something!

WE ARE DOING SOMETHING….will you join us?  We need your help.

In Xenia, The TreeHouse and GreenHouse are both men’s faith-based residential discipleship houses DOING SOMETHING to help rescue men caught in the evil of addiction, guiding them with love, instruction, and support to follow Jesus Christ and take part in His healing power for a new life.  Lives are changing at The TreeHouse and the GreenHouse!  Men are being restored to God, family, and jobs!

We need YOUR help.  The needs are great and here is how you can help us.

We are currently searching for house managers for our TreeHouse and GreenHouse Recovery Ministry houses. Until the position is filled, we will be unable to take any new applications for potential TreeHouse residents. This position is unpaid, as all our staff, but we offer *FREE* room and board. The duties include supervising 1-4 men, maintaining schedules, able to teach class, and transporting residents to church services. This person must be male, single, valid driver’s license, insurable, strong character traits, leadership abilities, strong in the scripture, and able to teach.

An important non-residential opportunity is for an Assistant to the Director (Assistant duties). Please contact Jeff at 937-207-0039 for more information and a detailed explanation of duties.

VOLUNTEERS

Daily/Weekly:  Men to teach bible classes on Friday mornings 9:00 – 11:00 a.m.  Men to teach life skills, provide transportation, discipleship and mentoring on a regular basis. Someone to do Case Management Tuesdays/Thursdays 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

FUNDING

We feed and house 7-8 men in our two ministry houses.  The financial need is great and growing.  Our full-time and part-time staff are unpaid.  With financial help from local congregations, we can feed, house, teach, and care for these men.  In addition to praying for us, please consider us in your congregation’s missions budget for regular financial support.

Thank you Chuck for posting this. It tales a lot of folks to make this happen.The ministry team of The Jeremiah Tree met last night to pray for and discuss needs of the ministry.

We need volunteers! Can you help? We depend on the hearts of folks who feel led to serve. We need errand runners, office help, transportation, class teachers, mentors, house repairs, and someone who can help with paperwork and phone calls and appointments (an informal "case worker") and we need an assistant to the Director.

We also need 3 or 4 18-gallon plastic totes (like the one in the picture) stocked with 2 identical NEW twin bed sheet sets, 3-4 bath towels, 2 hand towels, and 5-6 wash cloths (all of the same color - this helps residents keep linens separate). We have also been providing in each tote the following items: toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, deodorant, body wash, shampoo, razor & shaving cream. We want to welcome each new resident with a tote filled with personal items and new linens. If you can help, please give us a call! 937-207-0039

#GivingTuesday is here. Will you choose to give to impact lives in our community? This past year, the Jeremiah Tree has seen men's lives transformed, past hurts healed, relationships restored, employment secured, and the miracle of new life in Christ, all happening through the power of Jesus in the walls of these buildings. To be sure, there have been some stumbles along the way, but their lives are a testimony of the faithfulness of God. Now we are ready in less than two weeks to begin a new chapter, with a new house manager and a new group of residents who need you to stand with them. Will you help this holiday season be the beginning of a new, exciting chapter in their lives. www.jeremiahtree.org/

BridgeWalk – Walking in Their Shoes

Walk with us to see what Homelessness in Xenia looks like.

Where do you lay your head when you are broke, unemployed and miles from home? What about that child who has to sleep in a car at night with her single mom. Or what about those who are homeless due to mental health issues or substance abuse?

The homeless have many faces, but all of them share one very important fact — God loves them and wants to love them through us. In Xenia, the City of Hospitality, how do we deal with the homeless?

Walk with us in their shoes…

As we visit some of their places of refuge. Hear their stories and learn what the Jeremiah Tree and others in our community are doing to help them secure food, clothing and housing. Find out ways that you can partner with us to give them hope and dignity.

Walk with us and learn how you can make a difference!

Times:

Aug 29 @ 8:30 Pick up T-shirt
Aug 29 @ 9:00 Walk starts at Shawnee Park

Thursday Night Meeting

[mappress mapid=”1″]

PLEASE NOTE: the meeting has changed venues.

Because we were originally scheduled in a room that would only hold about 100 people, we are moving the meeting across the street to Xenia Church of the Nazarene, 1204 W. Second St. There will be signs directing people across the street, but it would help if you would all pass the word. Looking forward to a good turnout and some great dialogue on this exciting project!
Great article in the Gazette regarding our Thursday night meeting. Plan on being there!

XENIA — A Xenia non-profit ministry is proposing a use for the vacant Simon Kenton Elementary School building.

The Jeremiah Tree, which is dedicated to offering opportunities to the homeless, addicted and impoverished, is spearheading a group of local churches, ministries and service organizations to consider the feasibility of using the former school building as a community service center that would provide holistic support to families and individuals who are struggling with homelessness, financial crises, addiction or other difficulties.

As a first step, Jeremiah Tree officials are holding a public meeting, 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2 at the Xenia Community Center.
