Safe Harbor of Memphis Partially Funded by

Mark your calendars for our Spring Revival in Memphis April 1 – 5, 2019! We would love to have you join us!

During the celebration Sunday night I have never seen so much joy from so many family members. Mothers testifying and breaking down with tears of joy about how grateful they were for Safe Harbor and the program. A sister saying “my brother is a different person I can’t believe it.” Another mother testifying about how many years she has waited to see her son with a changed attitude and how she was so thankful for Safe Harbor.

The client you see standing here, notice the cane he is holding. He is the client I posted about going to the hospital one night after turning in his graduation package, only to find out he had a stroke and couldn’t use his left side. After talking to him and his family member, I told him that if he was unable to attend the graduation ceremony I would bring it and present it to him. But his family came and brought him to attend. The emotions were very high. His name is Mr. George Love.

Memphis Celebration Sunday. Awesome, Awesome and Awesome!!! Seven Graduates and their family came to show their support

“I thank God for a new way of living and for Safe Harbor.

Safe Harbor has been my miracle zone through the Power of God. The doors that the devil once closed, God has again opened.

I have been in this program for 4 months with two more before completion. Through this program I have learned to “Let go and let God”.

This is an opportunity for me to let everyone know how good God has been to me. God Saves! God Forgives! God Delivers! And God still loves you regardless of all of your shortcomings. I now have sanctification, rehabilitation and am currently full time employed… and I thank God for it!

I would like to thank Pastor Charles for his encouragement and teaching me the word of God, and also Chaplain Joe for his counseling.

God is still blessing me. Never would have made it without His grace and mercy!”

Thank you to a great group of guys who cleaned one of our partners parking lots on Thanksgiving night! #good2great


Monday, Oct 9, was the first night of the revival and it went off with a bang! The Holy Spirit was there and it took over.

We started off with praise & worship. Pastor Kyle spoke from 2 King, the 5th Chapter verses 1 thru 14, about Naaman. Wow what a powerful word. 17 men rededicated their lives to the Lord!

We are looking for another powerful night on Tuesday!

Proverb 28:20 Says “A faithful man will abound with blessings”.

Dwain Hicks, a student volunteer driver, was awarded a check in the amount of $100 for Pre-Trip Inspection. Because of his faithfulness and dedication, during a pre-trip inspection, Mr. Hicks discovered a problem that would have been a $2000 repair, had it gone unnoticed.

Special Thanks to Mr. Hicks for following protocol and understanding the importance of pre-trip inspection. #good2great

Congratulations to Terry Dotson for being Student of the Month for May 2017!

Our revival last week was a great success! The Spirit of God moved in an awesome way. I believe all the speakers were led by the Spirit of God in the word they spoke. Jesus said in John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it come from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

I can see it working in our participants as they realize a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is the source of wisdom, patience, and power. We need to honor God, help others, and meet the challenges of today. These men want to have dominion over every thing as God said and not let it have dominion over them. – Pastor Charles Sims

2017 Battle in the Saddle – Race for the Homeless

Jan 20 – 22, 2017 Safe Harbor Battle in the Saddle took over Tunica, MS. This was our 3rd year in Tunica and the show proved to be a huge blessing. We had over 1000 entries from contestants all over the southeast, Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri & Indiana. Along with the great added money that was made possible by our sponsors, we also hosted the KK Productions Run for Vegas. This is a race for girls 16 years & under to qualify for their shot to run at the prestigious finals held in Las Vegas. 

Katie Hulsey – 1D Average Winner at Tunica

We are excited at the opportunities that will come from this race. As we tell our contestants, they are helping to change lives one run at a time. Thank you to all who have and who continue to support Safe Harbor!

Students of Safe Harbor helping at the barrel race


At Safe Harbor, we consider it a privilege to serve the men and women in our care. These participants have come to us from living in the streets or ex-offenders that needed somewhere to go. We strive to provide them with so much more than food and shelter—we strive to make a lasting difference through group and pastoral counseling, life building classes, and finding them permanent employment which provides stability once they leave our care.

Would you consider partnering with us to make a lasting impact? We appreciate your support and pray that God will bless you as you have blessed!

Together we are making difference,

Brad S. Bowie,
