Shepura Men’s Center

A place where men in desperate straits find new direction and hope through Bible-based counseling, education and discipline.


What Is the Shepura Men’s Center?

The Shepura Men’s Center is the oldest ministry of the Jimmie Hale Mission. At this facility, we offer a 160-bed men’s dormitory, a dining hall that serves over 300 meals a day, a clothes closet, chapel services and a learning center.

What Do We Do?

Christ commands us to love everyone – not just those who are whole. For the broken and hurting, our Shepura Men’s Center is far more than a shelter, instead it is a place of healing and amended living. We change lives for the better through the power of God’s sustaining Word, education and remediation and job readiness, redemptive fellowship, and by valuing all who walk through our doors.

This quiet restoration of hope to our guests and their families means that we are not the end of the road, but the beginning of a better journey. We are the road back.

What Do We Offer?

For guests, we are a place of last resort for broken lives, the only thing standing between the streets, prison or worse. We provide structure, guidance and the means with which to amend lives. We give men the ability to hope again that can only be found through the true knowledge of Christ. We share this knowledge with them through:

  • Bible-based recovery classes
  • Individual counseling sessions
  • Group and individual Bible studies
  • Work therapy
  • Education remediation and job readiness

For the community, we provide an invaluable service by helping men change their ways to become productive and valued members of society once again.
