CHARLOTTE, AR (KAIT) - John 3:16 Ministries is a spiritual boot camp for men struggling with addiction. Saturday, the ministry celebrated it's newest expansion.

A dedication ceremony was held Saturday for the Craighead County Faith House. It's the newest and largest housing addition to the ministries campus.

"We have a Delta Faith House, a Lawrence County Faith House, and now a Craighead County Faith House," says Adam Farley with John 3:16 Ministries.

Saturday, hundreds of folks came out for the Craighead Count Faith House dedication ceremony. There was plenty of good food, as well as a look at the latest housing addition at John 3:16 Ministries. Farley is from Craighead County and graduated from the ministry two years ago. Now an instructor, he says being a part of this new addition is extra special. "You know I've been part of something that you know draws our community together instead of something that tears it apart," says Farley.

"It's incredible. It's actually been a year since the time we started," says Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin. He says with the ministry continually growing, it's amazing to see folks in Craighead County come together to support this project. "You have a multitude of people who gave on this project all from Jonesboro and Craighead County. We're just very blessed that they did that. We know that money is going to be put to use in a very good way," says Perrin.

A plaque on the door of each room, gives appreciation to those who have given to the cause. Around 90% of the funding for the faith house came from residents in Jonesboro. It's a 12 dorm facility, the largest on the grounds

"Every man in here is from Craighead County that's in the dorm right now. You know I look forward to the faith houses that are yet come, but this one I'm excited about," says Farley.

Several residents from Craighead County have gone through the ministry's program. Farley says currently, there are 10 men living in the new Craighead County Faith House.
