What is hindering you from being all that God called you to be?
Whether fear, shame, worry, sinful patterns or worldly distractions, God has a plan to clear the path so that you can “run the race” unhindered!
“Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” [Heb.12:1]
Using God’s word and the power of prayer, trained volunteers will help you identify every hindrance and get back on course with Christ.
Sign up for an appointment with two team members in a safe and private setting.
“Since my Unhindered Session, I am experiencing a greater sense of worth and belonging. I was drifting, and it helped me refocus. It felt freeing to let all sin out in the open. I know Jesus is with me always and has freed me from sin and helps me change.”
“During my Unhindered Session, God spoke tenderly and specifically to me to heal and free me from things that had weighed me down for years.”
“Unhindered brings freedom and joy! I would highly recommend taking the courageous step to walk in the freedom God has in store for you! I felt so at ease and cared for in my Unhindered Session and felt God’s presence with me. It was a freeing experience, and I left feeling such peace and assurance of God’s love for me as if weight was lifted from my shoulders. Thank you!”
“Just days after my Unhindered Session I felt for the first time in my life that I was completely free in God’s love because of the cross. Now, four months later, God continues to show me that no matter what happens or what mistakes I make, He is ultimately guiding me and molding me like clay in a potter’s hands.”
Grief and loss is a journey – but you don’t have to walk through it alone. If you’ve lost a loved one and are struggling with grief, you’re invited to find comfort and hope. This five-week class provides biblically based encouragement for the issues you may be facing.
Grieving with Hope will return in fall of 2023.
MEND is a ministry for individuals affected by sexual trauma. We offer structured support through our MEND classes but also are available for individualized support. Our goal in both is to provide a safe and comfortable place for individuals to be believed, supported and encouraged on their healing journeys. Contact us (email@example.com) with questions or for support.
MEND will return in fall of 2023.
REGISTRATION IS NOW FULL
We currently offer support groups for recovery and for those who have lost a spouse. Click below to view more on the available groups.
Whether you are in a current struggle, have found freedom from something that had a hold on you, or just need some accountability, these groups are a safe place to shed light on the dark areas that we all have in our lives. We will bring Biblical principles to bear their weight on the issues we have, and celebrate together as we watch Jesus transform us the only way that actually works—from the inside out.
Men’s Support Group meets Wednesday, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Apex Campus in the Sanford Room.
Losing a spouse is a significant loss that can turn life upside down. On top of experiencing grief, life adjustments are required which can prove to be very challenging. These groups aim to provide spiritual and practical encouragement to help.
For more information, contact Nellie Greer at Nellie.Greer@gethope.net.
