Letter from the Director - David Elkins

Blessings to all the supporters and sponsors of Safe Harbor. I pray this letter finds you safely in the arms of Jesus.


REALITY, if you have paid any attention to the events of the world today and have spent time reading God's word you have to see what is happening today is lining up with His end time prophecies. It doesn't take a Bible scholar to recognize the satanic activity is increasing and the apostate is apparent.

I had the opportunity this past weekend to attend an event called “4 Them We Fight” bringing awareness to the many who have lost their lives to fentanyl poisoning. The faces of the posters we're chilling, young kids who thought they were going to take a Roxy instead was given fentanyl that looked like a Roxy and died. I know there's some that say they shouldn't be taking anything, must not have been your child!

If you don't know Jesus you better get to know Him, better yet you better hope He knows you. At Safe Harbor our number one purpose is to introduce our clients to Jesus,. To know Jesus, come to trust Jesus, and to live their life to please Jesus.

True Freedom, it's right around the corner of knowing Jesus intimately. You may say well I haven't been locked up, incarcerated, but the word says whoever sins is a slave to sin and is in BONDAGE to Satan!

If you, or you know someone who is struggling with life controlling issues contact Safe Harbor, we want to help build that foundation to True Freedom, Finding a Purposeful Life, and Making a Difference, through knowing Jesus Christ!

I will leave you with words from the wisest man to live…

Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.


Pastor David

Partner of the Quarter - Sun Electric

Safe Harbor of Jefferson County would like to recognize Sun Electric as Partner of the Quarter. We have been partnered up with Sun Electric for several years now and have been seeing a growing change in that partnership. They have been utilizing men in our program and growing their respective talents. This is going as far as offering further education for graduates of our program. 

We expect to see great things these men do as a result of a good stable employment and a great skillset. We hope to see this relationship grow in the future even more-so than it is now.

Client of the Quarter

"I was living my life in darkness allowing the darkness to have complete control over my emotions. Allowing me to fill my void and bury my emotions with drugs, lust, stealing, fighting and breaking the rest of the commandments in one way or another. Running from the police was easier than running from GOD. There many times in county jails, heat breaks all because of running from who I was. Sitting in a jail, I started leaning on JESUS more, praying and reading HIS word. I started learning what obedience to the LORD meant with using discipleship in my life. I allowed JESUS' teaching with the HOLY SPIRIT to guide my heart and spirit. Joy, peace, sound mind, calmness and understanding came as I trust GOD to work in me instead of the things of the world. My life started to change with the evidence of the relationship with my children and family members. I finally started loving myself and where my life was headed while loving others growing in a GODly manner. My life was changing in a way I never knew it would go. JESUS showed me love was not what I thought it was. GOD saved me by using my mind, soul and spirit.

"I can do all things through CHRIST whom strengthens me." Philippians 4:13"
