Rehoboth conveys God’s love to persons with disabilities and their families by making room for them and enabling them to flourish.
Rehoboth Christian Ministries’ mandate is to serve people with disabilities so they can flourish in life. This mandate and our very name – Rehoboth – are inspired by a verse in God’s word where Isaac names a watering well: Rehoboth.
Genesis 26:22b. He named it Rehoboth, saying “Now the LORD has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”
Rehoboth means “a broad place” in which one has capacity to live a full life. And so we take our direction and inspiration from that. From spirited beginnings of providing room for the disabled to flourish on a ranch near Stony Plain, at a summer camp near Gull Lake, and in a modest home in Coaldale, Rehoboth has made room all across Alberta. We help the disabled flourish in some 50 group homes across Alberta with staffing in Grande Prairie, Stony Plain, Three Hills, Calgary and Coaldale.
By the grace of God, all persons with disabilities have a meaningful and dignified place in society where they can live, contribute and fellowship with others.
