Our mission is to spread the good news that you no longer have to be enslaved in the bondage of drugs, alcohol, sex, food or any other addiction. Because of the redeeming grace and salvation offered through Jesus Christ, you can find freedom. Through teaching and practical application of God’s word, Breaking Bonds has witnessed countless men and families experience breakthrough. They have worked through their struggles and found forgiveness, rebirth and an abundant life. Our vision is to help men in this community overcome addiction. Our hope is to help restore families torn apart from the bondage of drug and alcohol abuse. We believe that by surrendering our lives fully to God, these things can be made possible.
In the first three months residents focus on what’s most important, their relationship with Jesus Christ. Two days a week men participate in Bible study to develop a solid Biblical foundation. Spiritual transformation happens when residents learn and experience God together.
In months 4-6 residents prepare to go back out into the world. They are taught Franklin Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People,” “Leading at the Speed of Trust,” and “The Five Choices of Extraordinary Productivity” as well as Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University.”
Every man that comes through our program is different; therefore, every transition out of our program looks a bit different. Our month seven transition period is designed to set each man up for success upon graduation. This month is devoted to tying up legal affairs, helping to reinstate driver’s licenses, find work, housing, etc.
Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...

Greetings New McKendree Family,
It's hard to wrap my mind around everything that has taken place here at New McKendree this year. Every time I go into our newly renovated sanctuary, I'm reminded of the miracles God accomplishes in and through us when we simply say “yes” to his call. Our homecoming service was something that we’ll never forget. Imagine the countless lives that God has transformed in that sanctuary in past generations and how many lives will be transformed in future generations. I know I say this a lot, and I will probably continue to say it, but I'm blown away by how our church family pulls together and faces whatever challenge comes our way.
Coming out of Thanksgiving, my heart is overwhelmed by the love and determination of this church. It’s a love that doesn't come with conditions or strings attached. It's a love that can only be expressed by people who’ve fully surrendered to the Holy Spirit’s power.
Breaking Bonds continues to grow. We currently have 26 residents and anticipate reaching our 30-resident capacity shortly after the New Year. As a result of our growth, we recently purchased an additional 15-passenger van to help with transportation.
It's still hard for me to fathom that in less than two years, we’ve grown from 4 to 26 residents. God is using this ministry and this church to help change lives. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be than right here, participating in the powerful work God’s doing through Breaking Bonds in our New McKendree Church home. Thank you, and have a wonderful Christmas!
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Brandon Murphy
Breaking Bonds Ministries, Inc. was founded in 2014 by Casey and Tiffanie Turner in Jonesboro, AR. It began as weekly meeting of graduates from faith-based treatment centers. They met for fellowship, breaking of bread and studying God’s Word. In 2016, God laid it on their hearts to open a free, long-term, Christ-centered rehabilitation program. Breaking Bonds Ministries have witnessed hundred’s of men experience freedom by God’s redeeming power from the bondage of sin and addiction. Isaiah 14:3 “And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from the sorrow, from the fear, and from the bondage that you were made to serve.” Breaking Bonds Ministries, Jackson MO was started in 2021 in partnership with New McKendree United Methodist Church.
Breaking Bonds and New McKendree were featured in the June edition of the Missouri Methodist Magazine: Breaking Bonds Ministry Expansion Finds Partner Church in Jackson
