History of Life Change Centers
Bishop and Evangelist
Peter Nakhaychuk was an ordinary Christian man that ran a successful business, was responsible for ministry department in church. However, in 2004 Peter received a revelation from God urging him to help restore those lives broken through, childhood trauma, violence, and substance abuse. Being discouraged by the increasing loss of young lives and seeing the hardships of families of his dear friends and fellow believers with finding help for their children and grandchildren. Peter, then, quit his business and dedicated his life to this new ministry. Although, this ministry originally was started for the Slavic community, soon it attracted people from different nationalities and became international. This new work was called “Life Change.”
The first Christ-based rehabilitation center for men opened in Boring, Oregon in July of 2005. Since then, by Lord’s grace thousands of students have left addictions behind and let God transform their lives and lead them into ministry, giving them families and opportunity to grow spiritually, academically and financially. Life Change program is still helping people change their lives today! As of today, we have 23 centers opened in the US and worldwide ministering not just to men but to women as well. The Life Change Centers offer up to 18-month residential program for men and women. Our students
are provided not just with a detox program and restoration process are given the unique opportunity to re-enter their community life fully restored and equipped with skills for a successful and lasting drug-free lives.
