jesus wheel 300MADISONVILLE (10/17/13) – Take the Wheel Ministries is a faith-based substance abuse ministry located at Covenant Church on 1055 N. Main Street in Madisonville.

Take the Wheel Ministries is non-profit organization that is volunteer-based and made up of five different groups.

Groups at Covenant Church include: Education Class, for anyone who would like to be educated on harmful effects of substance abuse; Self-Help, for anyone who is currently trying to quit using harmful substances; Recovery, for anyone who has stopped using and needs the continuing support; Family/Friends Coping, for people who have family/friends who are using and want to learn how to cope; and, Teens Dealing with Family Members, for teens whose family members are currently using harmful substances.

Group times will vary. Those who are interested in the education class have the choice of either taking it online or in a classroom setting.

“Those, who are interested in taking this class online, can give me their email address and I can shoot them the information they will need. When it’s time for grading, they can send it back to me,” said Richard Tucker, director of Take the Wheel Ministries.

The ministry is looking for volunteers that are at least 18 years or older. No experience required. All volunteers will be trained.

 “We prefer Christians that have a past of substance abuse because they can help these people more than anybody else can,” said Tucker.

The ministry is also accepting donations for their first upcoming yard sale that will be held Friday, Oct. 25 and 26 at 2204 Buck Trace, just off Shamrock Drive in Madisonville.

“Right now, we are taking donations up until next Thursday for the yard sale we will be having the weekend of Oct. 25 and 26,” said Tucker. “All proceeds will be going to the ministry to help get the books and supplies for the ministry.”
