is no charge, but one must have a willing spirit. We require
that a man or a woman come drug free or sober (at least 5 days and on the day of arrival)
of their own free will, earnestly desiring permanent victory, and
that they remain for a period of ten weeks. All students must
be willing to cooperate in the work program.
Applicants must be at least 20 years of age. They must first complete and submit an application. Medical test results and a sponsor's signature are also required before entrance into the program.
As a former student, now victorious, puts it, "Hebron presents a Person, Jesus Christ, not a program." We believe, as Paul wrote in II Corinthians 5:17: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; Behold, all things have become new."
1. Each person is carefully interviewed and discipled; the entire personality is considered as we endeavor to meet the needs of an individual.
2. No addictive or habit forming substances are allowed.
3. There are daily Bible classes, informal discussion groups, several weekly worship services, and scripture memorization.
4. As a practical hands on teaching of God's Word, students are assigned daily work appropriate to their skills and physical condition. Assignments are directed toward maintenance of the facility and provision of food from our garden. Two local thrift stores in Boone and one in Mountain City are also a part of the operation in which the students participate.
5. In the Hebron Colony Ministries environment, distractions are shut out freeing the mind to reflect upon what is being learned. Immediate family does not visit for two weeks.
6. With a limited enrollment a personal, family atmosphere is maintained.
7. Through fellowship with others who have the same problem...understanding, encouragement and support are provided.
8. A difference in mental attitude, a spirit of thankfulness instead of reproachfulness, and a spirit of victory instead of defeat prevails at Hebron Colony Ministries.
9. Individual counseling is available upon request.
10. A schedule disciplines individuals in matters of punctuality, responsibility, hygiene, etc.
11. A fully equipped gymnasium in Boone is available for the enjoyment of the male students. This includes weight lifting equipment, billiard table, table tennis, basketball, volleyball, and badminton. Homemaking and craft classed are offered in Santee.
We do not offer medical or psychiatric services. Even though our program is spiritual, we are not interested in merely giving a person more religion. We explain salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ and offer help in applying the Word of God personally.
To begin the application process for admission into the ten week program, the prospective student needs to call and speak with a staff person. Upon receipt of the application, the Admissions Director will call the prospective student to give him/her an entrance date. He/she is then required to call in weekly to remain on the waiting list.
