Whether relapse has been a part of your recovery or not, knowing the answers to these questions is critical when trekking the terrain of the valleys in your life, right?

We have all heard it or had it said to us... "don't judge me", or "you have no right to judge". And so I have questioned what are we supposed to do? Are we to sit by and watch without saying a word as people destroy themselves?
I recently did a little social media survey. Join me on this journey as we take a look at why so many in today's culture are trying to silence the lambs!

So what's it going to take? How much pain and suffering are you willing to endure only to end up in the same place if not worse off?

Yet we find that what seems to be work for us and what seems to be impossibility to us is just another day of grace and mercy for God! Being a part of His work of turning lives around has been an adventure to say the least. We have had our ups and our downs during the ebb and flow of ministry. Yet what I am about to share with you I share with the utmost delight! This makes it all worth it!

In the area of recovery, some get instantly transformed and never look back. Praise God! I have found that I am not one of those cases. As much as my heart and mind were transformed, the working out of that transformation is still an ongoing process, as it is with most people in recovery. The Freedom Journey Program is to ensure a greater opportunity for success and wholeness in recovery.
From volunteer commitments to court orders, those who enter into this outpatient accountability program are held to a high standard of participation in their own spiritual, social and financial health. With discipleship models and key leadership, we pinpoint the areas of concern for unhealthy lifestyle and surround the client with a team of support.
Here is a little about our recent intake:
A young man with crimes punishable of up to 15 years in prison was remanded to a 12 month live in facility as part of his terms for suspended sentence. 11 months in he was asked to leave the program, which in turn violated his suspended sentence. In his violation hearing he was granted the opportunity to enter our program! So, instead of 15 years in prison, this young man will be attending church, bible college, Celebrate Recovery, and step studies. He will have weekly counseling both for spiritual formation and financial accountability. Instead of creating yet another convict, we have the opportunity of creating a citizen!

We are proud to announce a great success with our first "Helping Teenagers in Crisis" seminar. We had twenty in attendance from youth pastors, youth workers, teachers, and parents. The discussion was phenomenal! Not only did we equip others in our community, but we became better equipped as each participant shared their experiences in the field of teenagers in crisis. This will definitely be a training that we offer again and maybe soon. Our next opportunity for training in the realm of teenagers will be our Life Hurts, God Heals training TBA. You can find out more about that ministry here

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

Crisis hits teenagers of all shapes and sizes. Hurt and pain cross economic statuses with ease and as we do the best we know how, working with students in the trenches can seem like an overwhelming task when under equipped.
This seminar isn't the answer to the problem as much as it's the start of the conversation on how to help the teenagers in crisis in your direct circles. We hope you will join us for this seminar as youth pastors, youth workers, parents, teachers and even teenagers gather together to discuss this life saving topic. Are you ready to be a part of the conversation? A part of the change? A part of the life of a teenager in crisis?
