Group meetings are not design to take place of professional therapy, but to be a peer Christian support group.
The members of Moving4ward Ministries are not licensed counselors, nor are we professional therapists. We do not offer any advice. We are here to support you emotionally, and especially spiritually. We believe that healing is not only a natural process, but there is a spiritual process as well. We strongly believe in the healing power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are not here to judge you, but to allow a safe place where you can share, be encouraged, and loved. We understand the emotions that go along with this type of abuse, and we will be here with you through your healing process. We do offer a list of professional resources to assist in your journey. Healing is a process and each individual journey will not look the same.
Fixing Broken is an 11 week support group. These meetings are designed to acknowledge the broken pieces in our life, and to provide encouragement that you can become whole. The group uses Fixing Broken by author, Kira McConico, as the class workbook. Healing is a process and each individual journey will not look the same. It's time to heal and move forward.
Each group will have no more than 8 participants, and there is no cost.
