Restorative Ministries

Providing healing opportunities in specific areas of wounding which are common to many because we live in a broken world

We want to see you healed

Below are designed to provide healing opportunities in specific areas of wounding which are common to many because we live in a broken world. “Hurting people, hurt people” None of us is exempt from injury during our lifetime. Unaddressed wounds and unresolved pain diminish our life energy and we loose the desire to actualize our God-given talents inherent within us. Instead of thriving in life as God intended, we focus on survival techniques and attempt to minimize any further injury. This restricts our ability to form meaningful, healthy relationships and deepens our isolation and pain. The ministry menu presented at this time reflect the most common areas of wounding. Each ministry area will offer an opportunity to work through the most common issues related to that given topic. For some, these classes will be the beginning pathway to healing and restoration. Those with milder wounds may complete their healing journey during the course of the class. Others, with more severe wounds, may find it necessary to pursue additional healing avenues, including counseling. Wherever you are in life, God has made provision for healing – body, soul, and spirit

Counseling

Our Counseling Ministry is designed to come along side you and support you during any critical periods of your life. During these times we all need assistance – sometimes we give assistance and sometimes we receive assistance. Gal 6:2 states: “Bear ye one an-other’s burdens, and so fulfill the law.” We also know that if one member of our body hurts, the whole body fills the pain. (3 John 1:2) The counseling team is trained and prepared to assist you in your time of need.

Following are listed some of the common areas of counseling:

  • Premarital Counseling
  •  Marriage/Family Counseling
  • Grief Counseling
  • Trauma/PTSD Counseling
  • Anxiety/Depression Counseling
  • Anger Management
  • And More
Remuneration for services is based on ability to pay. For those who cannot pay, you are still entitled to receive ministry. You can exchange services received by giving/assisting others through an approved service list. This can be finalized with your counselor.

Perfectly You! The Gift in You!

No matter what you have been told, labeled, or what tests you have taken, you will see God has designed you uniquely in His image and likeness. You will take a fun “Gift Profile” assessment to identify your dominant thinking style, pillars, and how they work together. When you understand that God has divinely prewired you to accomplish your unique purpose and destiny, you will move forward to being the true you He has designed you to be. We will also learn about twelve blockers and how to move them out of the way so that you can thrive in your gift as you accomplish your destiny. (Psalm 139:13-14) We will be using Dr. Caroline Leaf’s material for you to discover a New Life through the gifts hidden in you.

There will be some costs for printed materials. This will be a six-week class.

Steps to Freedom

We all enter this world helpless and innocent, so we think. Yet already at birth some infants suffer profoundly from the sins of their parents: Some infants are born with AIDS, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, drug related defects, etc. Others suffer less visible symptoms, but still suffer silently for a lifetime. Compounding the effects of others’ sins on our lives, within a few short years we see the presence of the Adamic Nature manifested in our own lives. This weakness within our nature makes us susceptible to the wiles and trickery of the Devil. Now we begin to reap the harvest for our own sins. Some have described having a sense of foreboding as a dark cloud hovering over them that brings misfortune and repeated setbacks. They are believers in God, but He seems distant and unresponsive. What they are experiencing is the lingering effects of sin that has not yet been healed. At salvation one’s spirit is redeemed and made new, but the effects of a sinful lifestyle requires more cleansing and healing. Apostle Paul calls this “working out your salvation with fear and trembling.” Phil. 2:12 In this seminar we will address the most common areas in which Christians need further healing to experience victory and a new identify in Christ. There will be teachings in these common areas followed by ministry. For some with deep wounds, additional ministry may be required.
