The Narrow Road Home Ministry Report

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Matthew 7: 13, 14



We at THE NARROW ROAD HOME have the privilege of seeing the ministry of Jesus, “to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoner” fulfilled.

Women from all walks of life begin their journey to freedom on “the narrow road” when the enter the Narrow Road Home. Physical and spiritual chains which hold them captive to substance abuse, depression, eating disorders and, in some cases, a life of crime, are broken. We have a capacity for 15 women to be in residence and daily active in their healing journey. There is also a transition house for those who have finished their active treatment and are adjusting to their healthier and Christ-filled life.

The Director of the Narrow Road Home, Kim Engbrecht, is now taking this ministry into a high school in Okotoks and also to the Eden Valley Reserve.

Kim has accepted the weekly invitation to speak to the students of Holy Trinity Academy about addictions, depression and the path to freedom. Several of our clients join Kim and give their testimonies to the students. The feedback has been amazing! Also, Kim regularly ministers to the community of Eden Valley and we consistently have clients from that Reserve participating in the Narrow Road Home Program.

Sadly, a former client who was seriously ill passed away a few weeks ago. Praise God; we do not grieve as those who are without hope! Rhea, on her journey to sobriety through the Narrow Road Home, accepted Christ and we will meet again in eternity. She enjoyed the blessings of sober living, and her family is so grateful that they know where Rhea is.

Unfortunately, it is not a “success only” journey, but the Narrow Road Home stands firm on God’s promise that His word will not return void.

Come meet some of our clients and alumni as they serve you delicious crepes at The Creperie, high tea at The Noble Tea House or fulfill your clothing and other retail needs at The Vintage Blue Jay. All these services are in High River and provide excellent training for our clients to learn solid work skills. These small businesses are also a way for The Narrow Road Home to give back to the community.

The Narrow Road Home never rejects any women because of a lack of finances. We are so grateful to South Calgary Community Church for your financial support and continued prayers.
