About Us



Paul Anderson Youth Home exists to offer the grace of Jesus Christ
to hurting young men and their families by planting God’s Word in their
lives and discipling them in a relationship with Him.


America stands at a crucial moment in her history. Despite our strong foundation, we are clearly in decline as a nation. The tipping point? The state of our youth – especially the young men who will become our nation’s husbands, fathers, workers, and leaders – will determine the state of our future. To be honest, the outlook isn’t good. Our culture will continue its precipitous downhill slide unless we can change the direction of this generation.

Christian Home

Paul Anderson Ministries exists to do just that. Since 1961, through the Paul Anderson Youth Home (PAYH), we have served troubled youth from all over the country, providing a Christian home environment in which they can rebuild their broken lives through:

RECOVERY – Most of the young men who come to our Home are involved with substance abuse. We help them take important steps toward freedom from addiction and unhealthy lifestyle patterns. Our young men learn to manage life-controlling problems with God’s help.

RESTORATION – Our work focuses on helping broken boys become strong men. We teach them how to rebuild their lives with an emphasis on physical work and play, rigorous academics, and restored relationships with God, their families, and society.

REDEMPTION – All that we do is based on the redemption Christ offers us in the gospel. In that context, young men discover their intrinsic value, meet God in His Word, grasp the unconditional love of God for themselves, and learn how to walk under loving authority.
