We help men become set free from their past, live well in the present, and have hope for the future.

RLMO is a one-year, residential restoration and re-entry program in Rutherford County, TN, for men, ages 25+, who are overcoming addictions and other life-controlling issues.

The program was founded in 1995 by Basil and Naomi Adams. We address the root causes of substance abuse and other addictions and, through our faith-based discipleship approach, help men to seek health on all fronts: physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, relational, and financial.

In a world where bleak statistics try to define us,

our long-term residential program teaches true identity. and it’s working.

We serve Jesus by helping men help themselves.

The goal of Renewed Life Ministries Outreach is to provide a safe environment where men with life-controlling problems such as drugs and alcohol abuse, can experience life transformation through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Renewed Life Ministries depends on both staff and volunteers alike. We would not be able to help the men, families, and communities that we have been privileged to serve without our team. These people serve week in and week out to make a difference that will not be forgotten.

Our Team

Tim Anderson, Executive Director, plays a pivotal role in guiding our organization towards its mission of transforming lives and bringing hope to those in need. His passion for making a difference in the lives of others is evidenced in his involvement as a member of the Advisory Board of Adult Teen Challenge, Murfreesboro, along with his serving as a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist in the state of Tennessee. This certification reflects his expertise and qualifications in providing guidance and support to those in need, further showcasing his commitment to helping others.

Tim’s incredible journey of overcoming adversity and addiction through Jesus Christ, has led him to become a published author. His book, “Life of an Addict: My Journey to Freedom,” (where he has recently added a workbook entitled “Journey to Freedom: Work “Through” Book,”) serves as an inspiring testament to his personal growth and resilience. Through his writing, Tim, who has an abundance of incredible faith, shares his experiences and offers hope to those who may be facing similar challenges and helps them see the path of God for their own lives, leading them to freedom.

Tim’s dedication to service is further exemplified as a member of the Board of Directors at Family Worship Center in Murfreesboro, TN., where he also serves as the Director of Men’s Ministry. Tim and his wife, Nikki (who is also involved in ministry) have three adult children leading their own lives of impact and purpose.

Daniel Porter, Program Manager, is a dedicated team member at Renewed Life Ministries Outreach, bringing a profound understanding of addiction and recovery through his own life experience. After a period of falling away from God and struggling with addiction, Daniel found freedom and transformation through Christ. This personal journey drives his passion for RLMO, where he is committed to helping men find freedom and restoration in their lives and families through Christ.

Outside of his work, Daniel enjoys working out, spending time with his wife and children, preaching God's word, and sharing his testimony.
