Heartland Homecoming 2021

September is National Recovery Month, which coincides with our Homecoming event to celebrate more than 25 years in ministry. We’re looking forward to re-connecting with friends as we “declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).  Heartland is an intentional community built around a local church. We have been blessed by many people throughout the years who came to receive help, but also those who felt called to help others as they found hope and healing. We...

Adrienne’s testimony

Adrienne says she “really” got saved at church, after being in the women’s recovery program just under a month. “I don’t remember what Pastor Charlie was preaching,” she recalled, “but I knew I had to get up to the altar. Going to the altar and praying this time was very different than the times I had done it before. I knew it was real, and I was no longer playing the “perfect little church girl” game. This time was for keeps. It was the first time I realized that it took a real, working...

Lee’s Testimony

My childhood was a good one. My father worked, my mother stayed at home and a grandmother lived with us most of the year. We were a solid middle-class family.  I grew up in the Methodist church and we were there every Sunday.  By the fourth grade, we had moved back to Tennessee to my father’s hometown. Making good grades and pleasing my parents and family became very important to me.  I enjoyed the praise I received from doing well. My mother passed away when I was 11. It was devastating for my father.  While my resolve strengthened to be a...

Donald’s Testimony

I grew up in South Louisiana in what you would call a very dysfunctional family. My dad was a violent alcoholic who abused me, and my mom. I can remember my uncles giving me alcohol at a very early age just to have a good laugh at seeing me wobble. Mom even told me they put beer in my bottle when I was a baby. I remember smoking my first joint at 10 or 11. I began at an early age to stay out late at night. I didn’t have any consequences from doing what I wanted to do. I remember riding through the neighborhood with my friends, stealing cb...

Richard’s Testimony

Richard’s struggle with addiction began at the age of thirteen when his father introduced him to heroin. Listen as he shares his story of addiction, salvation, relapse, and finally living in true freedom in Christ. When I turned thirteen years old my father introduced me to heroin. As a birthday present, he gave me an injection of heroin and introduced me to a life of crime. By the age of 19 years old, I was already in bad shape. I lived a life of selling drugs, and was sentenced to prison. I continued the life of crime inside the...

Mitch’s Testimony

Within six months of my birth in Ft. Worth, Texas, my dad was put into prison. Seven years later he was released, and it was at that point he introduced me to alcohol and cigarettes, and sexually molested me as well. He locked me into closets and water heater rooms, leaving me in there for two to three days at a time. During this time we moved back and forth between Texas and Missouri, then to Quincy, Illinois. At the age of 10, I was struck by a car and almost died, but I was brought back to life by an A.E.D. They administered this from the...
