Who We Are
Manasseh Ministries, established in 1999, is a successful faith-based residential program serving women of Texas and their children by providing spiritual, emotional and physical support. Our strict 12-month program allows women to achieve independence, reunite with their children, and end the revolving door of recidivism. Manasseh’s philosophy is one of scripture-based teaching and modeling of Godly character. Including strong interpersonal support systems and an attitude of never giving up.
We were incorporated as a faith-based interdenominational organization to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Body of Christ in this specialty ministry of alcoholics, drug addicts and ex-offenders.
We pull together the participating churches because we can accomplish much more for the Lord together than we ever could independent of each other. That, we believe is what a para-church is.
Types Of Activity
We not only learn to walk in responsibility but how to play and relax, this is a learned skill if you come from a dysfunctional and addictive background. Staying distressed it an important part of sobriety and will enhance you spiritual growth as well. We spend one day a week geared toward recreation.

About Our Prison Ministry
Chaplain Muriel Rogers, Founder and Director of Manasseh, established MM in 1999 based on her own successful reintegration into society. This director has “been there, done that” and knows it does work. Community volunteers work as teachers and mentors assisting with daily operations. Chaplain Rogers, licensed Minister of the Gospel and appointed Chaplain by The Assemblies Of God International Fellowship, was granted a full pardon by the State of Texas in August 2003.
Pray for the leader of Manasseh to have God's wisdom as we continue to grow and service more women and provide new and creative services through our Beyond Re-entry Program. Manasseh means: God has made me to forget my old life!
