My Story – Archie Minnieweather

“Abba, God the father’s love for me, compels me to be a better disciple”

Archie says his journey through recovery is a love story. Almost 13 years ago, his sister loved him enough to bring him to ARM ministry. At the time Archie believed there was no hope left for him; God had turned his back on him. Archie had been to 4 rehabilitation centers before coming to ARM ministry. Each time he would get clean. Each time he would stay clean for a little bit longer. And each time he would eventually relapse into his meth addiction. When Archie arrived at ARM, he was defeated, ashamed, and spiritually empty.

As a client of ARM ministry, Archie got back to the basics of learning who Jesus is through the Christ-centered 12 step program. He developed a personal relationship with God and learned to view himself how God sees him instead of how he saw himself. Archie credits the transparency and authenticity of ARM’s director, Obie Bussey, as well as the program mentors and volunteers to show that God loves unconditionally. “I don’t have to be perfect. The Christian without a spot or blemish. God’s love and grace encourages me to continue on my path.” 

“Today and everyday, I long for his presence. I now understand, I’m more than a sinner, I am a child of God”

Highlighting Dwayne Nelson!

Dwayne Nelson was born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in Dallas, Texas. He graduated from Kimball high school in 1992 and went on to further his education at Utah State University where he received his Bachelors of Sociology.
Dwayne is an energetic, ambitious, and generous person who takes on any task that he is given with precision.

He is a proud father of two, a son who is 27 years old and a 5-year-old daughter that he adores. Dwayne works very well with others, and he enjoys taking the lead and helping whenever he is needed.

For the past 20 years Dewayne has struggled with addiction. Dwayne stated, “I have achieved many accomplishments in my life; however, I have very little to show for them”. Dwayne’s hopes and prayers are that the ARM program helps him to put his life back on track, and he is focusing on growing a fruitful relationship with Jesus Christ that will restore him back to sanity.
