A Relational Atmosphere that Brings Growth

Prayer Mountain Boys Academy centers on relationships and on teaching leadership.

Our committed staff understand the situations facing these young men, many from personal experience, and they love the boys like family. We help them to grow in their relationships with themselves and with each other and, in time, to heal broken relationships with their parents and families.

Former Student

God directed my steps and changed me one step at a time. He healed all the anger and everything else that was in my life before. I figured out that I couldn’t do things on my own, but that God was the only one who could direct my life.

Former Student

I decided to give God a chance and surrender everything to Him. As I began to repent, I finally realized all the things I’ve been going through didn’t have to be there anymore. Since then, my life has never been the same.
