Small Group Ministry and Leader Training
A Time to Heal Beyond Survival Just for Men is a powerful, 8-week program for men who have suffered from abuse in any way. These are small-group forums with a highly trained team of leaders which deliver a pragmatic and detailed approach each week to help the participants not only overcome the effects of the traumatic events of their abusive past, but also lead them beyond their individual patterns of mere survival, and direct them to the pathway of restoration and abundant life in Christ Jesus.
