Our Story


We are here for you and yours.

We exist for the purpose of serving those with emotional or mental challenges, those desiring to learn a different way to see life, or groups wanting to build opportunities for growth. Our mission is to bring hope, courage, and faith to the lives of individuals, families, and groups.

Making a difference

Mental illness is far more prevalent than many realize. With one in four adults struggling with mental illness each year, there's no doubt that there are people in our churches who desperately need love and support. Unfortunately, the church hasn't always done a great job of ministering to those affected by mental illness—either their own or a loved one's illness. But it doesn't have to be that way.  We can't afford to ignore mental illness. Mental illness is so common, it affects nearly everyone. And responding to suffering of all kinds is part of the work we are called to do. As people called to spread love and hope, we must step out and offer what only the people of God can offer.
