Confronting Issues

We are not afraid to confront the issues and talk about them.

Step by Step

We are constantly emphasizing taking things one step at a time.

Renewed Life Ministries Outreach (RLMO) is a one-year, residential discipleship training center for men who are struggling with life issues. RLMO was founded in 1995 by Basil & Naomi Adams. Our mission is to help men become set free from their past, live well in their present, and have hope for the future.

The Bible is clear, our identity is in Christ. Renewed Life Ministries is committed to teaching this truth to our students. Our instructors have overcome in these same areas and are now discipling other men as they walk into all that God has for their life.

When men are struggling with addiction, pornography, and emotional turmoil, we cannot take a “flash in the pan” approach. Our discipleship program follows a four-step plan: Identity in Christ, Christlikeness, Accountability, and Self-Evaluation.

In a world where movies, talk shows, magazines and statistics try to define us, it is imperative these men understand what God’s Word says about who they are IN Him. We can walk in the truths promised in God’s Word as our solid foundation.

Meet the Team

Renewed Life Ministries depends on both staff and volunteers alike. We would not be able to help the men, families, and communities that we have been privileged to serve without our team. These people serve week in and week out to make a difference that will not be forgotten.
