What we do...
Welcome to the Stauros Ministries website! We have been serving as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in the Central Maryland/Baltimore Metro area since 1998.
We offer support to individuals (and their families) who are affected by drug and alcohol addiction. Addiction is a complex issue, and every experience is unique. That’s why we offer personalized guidance through personal, one-to-one relationships. Our objective is to understand their needs and help them find the path to a new life.
Our focus is on relationships between people and God – these relationships are the not only the andidote for addiction, but for the ills of society as a whole.
We also provide educational resources through seminars, workshops, and conferences. This allows us to present the Stauros ethos, discuss methodology, and offer guidance to those who are interested in helping others within their families and community.
Thank you for stopping by, and for your interest in our ministry! We’re here for whatever you need, and look forward to working with you to build and restore relationships between individuals and the Lord.
... And Why We Do It
Substance abuse, mental health issues, and suicide rates have risen to record highs, in no small part to the isolation of pandemic lockdowns. The pandemic itself may be over, but an epidemic of fear, uncertainty, and mistrust was left in its wake.
We understand the struggles of addiction and isolation, as many of our workers and volunteers have experienced the same struggles. With the help of the Lord and through other people in our lives we overcame these obstacles. Our goal is to extend the same helping hand to those in need.
Everyone deserves a chance at redemption and a new life through a relationship with the Lord. That is why we dedicate ourselves to providing personalized support, resources, and education to help individuals and famlies overcome the obstacles which keep them from experiencing a fulfilled life.
In a few short weeks Stauros Ministries will be holding a conference in McGrath, Alaska!
We have been invited to the village of McGrath by Brad Sturm, the director of One Wilderness Ministries. During the second weekend of June (7th – 9th) Brad will be flying leadership from surrounding villages into McGrath to attend the conference. One Wilderness has been ministering in McGrath since 2018, and has asked for our assistance.
Presentations, discussions, and Q&A sessions will be offered to the attendees in order to provide the community leadership with whatever they need to combat the epidemic of drug and alcohol abuse that plagues their communities.
The official statistics on addiction and suicide in Alaska are shocking:
- Alaska is #1 in the nation for suicides, and more than half of the time drugs and/or alcohol are involved
- Native Alaskans are 3x more likely to abuse alcohol than the general population
- Young native males are 14x more likely to commit suicide than of the general U.S. population
- Cases of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) are some of the highest in the world, with up to 81% of prenatal alcohol exposure, or maternal alcohol abuse, being reported (https://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi)
We are still accepting contributions – join us in helping McGrath provide hope to those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Please select the option TRAVEL on our donation page if you would like to contribute.
