Revelations of Freedom Ministries was founded by Christian businessmen from Lancaster and York Counties who are visionaries. ROFM is a 501c3 faith-based agency. In 2012 ROFM opened its doors to its first students. As the ministry began to grow, the Board of Directors decided that we needed a second home where students could go to transition from an inpatient facility to the community. In 2013 ROFM opened the 2nd phase to help the men transition back to the community and become successful followers of Jesus Christ.
Today we encourage our students to remain in our transitional housing as long as is needed.
Revelations of Freedom Ministries (ROFM) is a 12 to 18 month residential discipleship training center for men battling various life-controlling problems (such as drugs and alcohol). The program consists of Phase 1 and Phase 2. Each phase can be from 4 to 9 months long, depending on the student's personal development.

Larry has come to this position with a seasoned background in addiction. Larry struggled with addiction for 3 decades, but he has been free of addictions for many years now. He credits faith-based programs, like ROFM, with his recovery. "I went through a number of secular treatment programs but it was the Christ Factor that made the difference for me," said Larry in a recent interview with Ann Mead Ash. Larry ran a Crisis Referral Center and Thrift store in North Carolina and worked for Teen Challenge of Wisconsin before taking the leap of faith that lead him to ROFM.
It is through personal experience that Larry has witnessed the truth and reality that, Jesus Christ still sets the captives free...is still breaking the chains of addiction, restoring lives, and...makes all things new!
Phase 2 (1059 Main St., Blue Ball, PA)
After the 1st phase, the men transfer to the 2nd phase where they begin to practice the skills they are taught. The men get jobs, find accountability, become connected in the church, and continue to grow in maturity. They can remain in our transitional housing as long as needed to gain strength, structure, and stability in their sobriety.
