  • Celebrate Recovery

    Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered and Bible-based 12 Step Recovery Program. This tried and proven recovery system uses the traditional methods of issue groups, sponsors, accountability partners and special occasions to build recovery for those struggling with addictive habits, codependency, childhood hurts and other life experiences that affect our peace.

  • The Encounter/Youth for Christ

    A ministry to young people in the Twin Ports

    We see new young people coming in the doors of the Encounter and attending our ministry programs, taking leadership as part-time staff and volunteers, taking what God has done in their lives and sharing it with their peers.

    Our staff and volunteers are here to put their arms around kids and help them see that we care, and more importantly, that God loves them and cares about their lives.

  • Covenant Enabling Residencies

    Many people take the ability to live independently for granted. Adults with developmental disabilities don't. For them, the ability to live as independently as possible is a gift.

    It is also a gift to their families. As parents consider the future for their disabled children, they search for residential programs that mirror their values and lifestyles. They want reassurance that their child will live in a homey setting and receive the care and assistance they need to live a fulfilling life.

    At Covenant Enabling Residences of Minnesota, we enable young adults with developmental disabilities to live independently.

    Our mission is to assist teens and adults in gaining freedom from chemical addictions and other life-controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

We offer two program options: a 12-15 month residential program, and a Licensed Outpatient Treatment Program, to effectively serve individuals with a broad spectrum of addiction issues.

  • Child Evangelism Fellowship

    Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) is the largest evangelistic outreach to children in the world, serving in over 155 countries. CEF shares the Gospel to children through after-school Good News Clubs during the school year and backyard 5-Day Clubs in the summer.

Covenant Enabling Residencies

In suburban Duluth, 16 developmentally disabled adults experience the warmth of a Christian family lifestyle. They live in North Place and Our Place--two duplex homes that each accommodate eight and are 10 miles apart. A supportive staff is available 24 hours. 

Residents live as a Christian family, contributing to the family to the full extent of their abilities. In the small community, one resident's strength can complement the needs of another. 

In this Christian environment, the physical, emotional and spiritual health of each member of the community is valued, protected and nurtured. Individualized, carefully monitored programs challenge residents to reach their potential through education, training and the development of social skills.
