WHICH FORM OF CARE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

FORMATIONAL PRAYER COUNSELING

Formational Prayer Counseling is focused on helping people make sense of their past and understanding how their past continues to affect them in the present in possibly debilitating and unseen ways. The next step in the care process is positioning people to experience the healing and transforming power of Christ in those past broken places so they no longer have a negative impact on a person's present. With a past and present focus, counseling helps people experience a brighter future.

PEOPLE SEEKING FORMATIONAL PRAYER COUNSELING MIGHT BE EXPERIENCING:

  • Addictions 

  • Abuse/Trauma (PTSD) 

  • Anger or Rage 

  • Anxiety or Fear 

  • Depression 

  • Divorce 

  • Eating Disorders 

  • Grief or Loss 

  • Marital Issues

  • Mental Illness 

  • Mood Disorders 

  • Self Esteem Issues 

  • Stress 

  • Substance Abuse 

  • Sexual Addiction 

 

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

Spiritual Direction is an ancient practice in which mature and highly trained Christians help others sense and discern the activity of God in their lives. Like an experienced travel guide pointing out landmarks a Spiritual Director may help a Christian notice things God is doing in their life that otherwise would have been missed. Through skills in listening, discerning, asking insightful questions, and leading spiritual practices, a Spiritual Director becomes a wise companion on the journey who can help Christians experience more of the Holy Spirit's movement in their lives. Though Spiritual Directors may help a person discern what God may have to say about their past or future, the focus of the Spiritual Director is on helping a person see and experience God in the present moment.

PEOPLE SEEKING SPIRITUAL DIRECTION MIGHT BE EXPERIENCING:

  • Significant life change

  • Desire to hear God's voice clearly

  • Stagnation in their Christian journey

  • A sense that there must be more

  • Desire for Spiritual Growth

  • Desire for greater peace and inner stillness

  • Confusion

  • Loss of Hope

 

CHRISTIAN COACHING

A Christian Coach is a skilled listener and thinking partner who can help draw out a person's inner capacity to hear God's voice and then develop strategies for change. While a counselor is focused on helping a person make sense of their past and overcome obstacles there, a coach is focused on helping a person overcome specific challenges in their present life situation. Often times we know of changes we want to make in our lives and might even have a vague sense of how to makes that change happen, but still we remain stuck in dysfunctional behaviors. A coach is trained to help you make the changes you want to make in your life so that you can live the life God has for you. 

PEOPLE SEEKING HELP FROM A COACH MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR:

  • Freedom from Addictions 

  • Lifestyle Change​s

  • New Habit Formation

  • Help focusing life goals and vision

COME AWAY WITH ME RETREAT

We are wounded in community and we are also healed in community. The Come Away with Me Retreat is another intensive counseling experience that intentionally adds the healing power of community to the healing process. This retreat focuses on deep inner healing through the modality of Formational Prayer.

 

The retreats are led by a team of highly-gifted and professionally-trained caregivers who will help you work through the wounds that compromise life and ministry. During your experience, you will receive specialized attention in formational care that will position you for deep personal healing. You will be assigned to a caregiver who will meet with you each day during the retreat for a Formational Prayer session. The caregivers also work as a team and are available to all participants throughout the retreat. This year's retreats will be taking place at the beautiful Eagle Wings Lodge in the scenic region of Hocking Hills, Ohio.
