Agape House
What is Agape House?
Agape House is a Christian transitional home where women find a new life through the life changing message of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission Statement:
Agape House exists to help women in the Northeast Arkansas area find freedom from addiction and realize God's love for them and purpose for their lives, through structured living, spiritual teaching and practical life instruction.

Anyone interested in helping this most needed ministry may call Agape House (870)236-1188, or Sunny Brawley (House Director) at (870)236-2492


Our Approach:
We offer a new life and new hope through personal spiritual experience with our Lord Jesus Christ.

1
st Phase: While in Agape House we plan to see women set free from life controlling addictions, learn biblical principles and values along with disciplined work habits that will equip and sustain them as they become drug free, productive, law-abiding Christian members of the community.

2nd Phase: The women will begin to apply biblical principles and disciplined work habits acquired in Phase 1 in their daily lives.

3rd Phase: The women are ready to begin to disciple newer members of the house, teaching them by example. At this point they may also seek employment, or vocational or educational training for job placement.
