Reviews for U Turn For Christ Greeneville
I have the privilege first hand to see this ministry in action and to see lives of men and women changed forever! I serve in the ministry when I can helping with worship and technical arts, serving alongside other servant hearts, and have had the chance to listen to many testimonies of folks attending U-Turn. I also know first-hand because my son attended and U-Turn for Christ has helped him in amazing ways! The ministry can only help you if you want it to help. The Lord will speak to you only if you want to listen. We need to continue supporting and praying for this ministry, the folks attending, and for the Pastors serving these men and women battling with these strongholds. Mark 4:9
My time at U turn For Christ was life changing. A place where i became useful to the Lord and to my family which had given up on me. The daily bible study and hard work helped me become productive. I hated it at first but came to realize i was fighting against myself and the Lord
I love Uturn it is a helpful ministry that showed my how to be responsible and be held accountable for my decisions, how to get up and become a productive member of society instead of the wasted space I use to take up just going through life. I have purpose now and I am thankful that Uturn showed me how to be respectable. I have confidence today and know who I am and where I am headed all because I have a relationship with Jesus.
Finally!!! A place where I fit in. U Turn as a whole...there's nothing great about it - you clean n do chores, work detail and 3 bible studies almost every day - on top of that your held accountable for what you say or do and your surrounded by junkies 24-7 BUT I GOT ME HERE!!! I found the program/routine to be subtly helpful, almost by osmosis - it gave me a better work ethic and more. I was put in situations daily where i could apply what was taught from God's word the night before or that morning. I was given the opportunity to fail or succeed and the room to grow. I have become faithful - someone who can be trusted and depended upon and that feels better than any high. Most of all Jesus is there, God has his hand stretched out to help everyone who goes there - unfortunately I saw many just pass it by. I thank God for the imperfect men running the program, for giving me an obtainable goal and reassurance that that He can use even me.

Please check this place out before placing anyone here. Men sleep (or try to) in unairconditioned upstairs. Turnover rate is VERY high. They require 2 months (cash) pre-pay and you lose if they don't stay (very unlikely that they will). This is supposed to be a Christian rehab center. Sure there is Bible study but their practices seem very unChristian - ask those who have left. Punishment is very inconsistent - just whatever the leader wants to do for that day and depends on if you're one of their "favorites". Very little accountability. Your loved one WILL NOT make it so you're wasting your money. Ask them for a list of those who have left for a reference. I know, they'll tell you you'll just hear from a disgruntled person but that person will tell you what it's really like. Trust me, NOT a place they'll want to go. Writing this in hopes of saving others from the "experience" (it will be a bad one).
Offered as our opinion. PLEASE check it out for yourself.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Yes and they were not good.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Require accountability within the organization. What really happens to the $800 cash that's required upon beginning the program. This is non-refundable and if (when) person leaves program, it's gone. Their goal should be to retain and help those in the program but their goal seems to be get as many in as you can - retention is VERY low and don't fall for their excuse "they chose to leave, we don't kick anyone out". All a matter of speech.
