Title: Development Director
Company: Friends of Sinners
Location: Owensboro, Kentucky, United States
Jordan Wilson, Development Director at friends of Sinners, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in drug rehabilitation administration.
Since 2019, Mr. Wilson has prospered as the development director of Friends of Sinners, a Christian-based residential recovery program in Owensboro. The nonprofit organization’s purpose is to provide a safe and structured post-treatment environment where individuals recovering from drug dependency can establish a faith-based foundation toward recovery. Friends of Sinners operates two separate centers for men and women. In the spring of 2021, the organization’s men’s group purchased a new facility that will be able to house more than 40 male clients.
At Friends of Sinners, treatment is administered in four phases over an 18-month period. Phase One is the “Foundation,” which provides basic treatment programming; Phase Two is “Disciple’; Phase Three is called “Fisher of Men” while Phase Four is the “Ambassador” phase, where residents provide mentorship and leadership to those involved in the earlier phases of the program. In addition, residents participate in a 12-step program, peer-to-peer mentoring and Bible studies.
In addition to crediting his success to his deep religious faith, Mr. Wilson also cites the encouragement and mentorship of Mark LaPalme, the founder and chief executive officer of Isaiah Treatment Center, who trained him in marketing and public relations and hired him as the center’s public relations manager. Mr. Wilson himself has battled substance abuse and recovered with the help of his parents, who encouraged him to enter a recovery plan and to join a church, leading him to his baptism on June 9, 2016 at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. In coming years, he is hoping for continued success with Friends of Sinners and to continue promoting his book, “Jesus > Drugs.”
