NEW BEGINNINGS IN CHRIST is a Christ-Centered recovery home for men suffering from chemical dependency issues. As one of the few treatment centers in America made available at NO COST to the men, or their families, NBIC rejoices in what The Lord accomplishes through the kindness of those who support our ministry. Far beyond recovery itself, we regularly witness the miracles of saved marriages, children reunited with healthy Dads, and Mothers who are able to sleep at night knowing their sons are safe.


23 years ago, God gave Donald Atkinson, a fully recovered alcoholic himself, the vision for NBIC when he became convicted of the need to provide families with a no-cost alternative to the price-intensive nature of traditional recovery homes.

NBIC has grown from just 5 men in 2004 to over 90 today. We have had the blessing to see over 2000 men come through the program and learn about the redemptive power, goodness, and love of God.

New Beginnings In Christ is a registered 501 (C) (3) non-profit charity that receives no state or federal funding whatsoever. NBIC is operated solely on the love, kindness and generosity of donors that appreciate and understand what God is doing here to save lives and make our communities safer. Donald and Joanna receive NO salary for their labors, graciously sacrificing their own lives in order to see men freed from the bondage of alcoholism and drug addiction. 


To fully equip men in the grip of chemical dependency with a life-preserving biblical tool-kit of faith expressing itself in love, to facilitate an ongoing spiritual awakening that results from both knowing and following in the footsteps of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

To the glory of God, together, we strive to empower each newcomer to understand an escape from drugs and alcohol is made only by becoming fully committed to a right relationship with God, his family, the community, and himself. We believe a Christ-centered life is the only way to for a person to remain free of the need to use drugs and alcohol to cope with life.
