Our Story

Pastor Roger Jenkins began Dawn of a New Day Addiction Ministry in 2014. He was inspired by the time he spent working at the New Creation Ministry that was located in Atlantic Mine, Michigan. He not only saw the results of a Christian-based ministry but was able to help the men who sought treatment make positive changes in their lives. When he left New Creation, he attended the Inter-Lutheran Seminary. His third-year internship was spent working at the Union Gospel Mission in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he worked with the homeless men, alcoholics, and drug addicts. After he graduated, he went back to work at the Union Gospel Mission. With the training he received both in school and at the two missions, he knew he could put together a rescue mission in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Pastor Jenkins wrote the program that will be used for this Christian-based treatment for men, women, children, and families. 


Since Pastor Jenkins began his journey to establish Dawn of a New Day, nine other board members have joined him in his cause.  They currently seek financial aid to help them purchase a facility which can be adapted to house 10-20 individuals in need of spiritual guidance to overcome their substance addictions.

Dawn of a New Day Addiction Ministry has opened an office to counsel clients on an outpatient basis at "Our Saviours Lutheran Church" in Atlantic Mine, MI.


If you are interested in helping, please visit our donations page or contact us.


At this time, Dawn of a New Day Addiction Ministry is accepting clients on an outpatient basis only..  We are still in the start-up phase, and we must establish a facility and staff before we will open to in-house counseling.  Please check back at a later date to see when we will be ready to accept applicants for in-house treatment.
