Why should you partner with HIA
Addiction is the epidemic of our generation. It’s affecting nearly every family in this state. It does not discriminate by social class, spiritual depth, income level, job title or denominational background. Furthermore, no age group, race or gender is immune.
As you can see from the statistics below we are fighting an uphill battle.
- Oklahomans per capita opiate prescriptions and abuse lead the country.
- Drug overdoses now kill more Oklahomans than motor vehicle accidents.
- Over 160,000 Oklahomans need treatment for drug and alcohol addiction We can’t sit by any longer allowing Oklahomans to suffer.
When you choose to partner with Hope is Alive Ministries you’re choosing to give HOPE to the hopeless, you’re choosing to provide resources to those families who have no idea where to turn and you are choosing to celebrate with those who have found their way to sobriety!

They ALL need help, hope and someone to guide them along this pathway to peace. HIA is here to bridge the gap between the church and the practical and therapeutic help that can be found in the recovery community.

Senior Pastor – By providing him a trustworthy resource to lean on and the knowledge that his staff members are receiving support and training, he can feel confident that he is doing all he can to proactively minister to his flock.
Support Staff – The support staff often receives the brunt of these types of calls. The desperate parent wondering what to do with their child or the wife uncovering a sexual addiction, it’s the support pastors who have to wade into these dark and uncertain waters. A partnership with HIA Ministries will provide your pastoral team the confidence that they are not entering into these waters alone.
How the HIA Partnership works
The local church has a responsibility to strengthen and serve its members. Through a partnership with HIA Ministries, you can immediately begin offering a ministry that will serve the families and individuals in your congregation who are in desperate need of strengthening. When the members of your church find themselves in need of professional help that is beyond your level of expertise, you can trust that HIA will be there to guide you and direct those in need to the appropriate resources, facility or organization.
By in large, most church staffs are not equipped to handle the needs of a person trapped tightly in the grips of addiction. But by partnering with HIA, you can provide a solution to a problem that you would typically not have an answer to.
A partnership with HIA Ministries has broad reaching effects. Offloading enormous pressures from your church staff while simultaneously offering hope to your congregants.
It is clear we are under attack. People are suffering and they need help. By partnering with HIA Ministries you can provide your members the help they need.
