Our primary goal is to help residents grow in their Christian faith through Bible study, retreats, and mission trip opportunities. But more importantly, residents are encouraged to challenge and encourage each other to live out their faith in everything they do and say. Residents pray for one another and challenge each other through positive peer pressure to walk in the righteousness of God, which is demonstrated through the Godly character traits such as purity, honesty, and generosity.

Discipline at Vero Beach is principle-minded and designed to teach a lesson, not to punish. We do not participate in any form of corporal punishment, withholding or changing food allowances, nor physical restraint (other than in situations where the child may be an imminent threat to himself or others). Typical disciplinary tactics include the loss of some privileges or the addition of chores, or both.
