Mental Health Ministry

We have the conviction that it is possible to live well in spite of having a mental health challenge because of the hope there is in Christ.

 

In many churches, intentionally or unintentionally, the overriding emphasis is on “victorious Christian living,” with the basic assumption that real Christians don’t have problems– or at least not crippling, persistent problems that prayer won’t cure. This is in direct contradiction to what Jesus said: “Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Our ministry utilizes a collection of resources providing simple, innovative and grace-filled mental health solutions and community support for those experiencing a personal journey with depression, anxiety, or bi-polar.
