The universal brokenness of sin creates a ripple effect of pain that often blindsides families and churches. Unfortunately, the Christian community is not immune to such struggles. Drug abuse, addictions, depression, questions about God’s love, power and presence — all can contribute to feelings of confusion and hopelessness. The Scriptures provide us with both the precepts and principles that assist us as we navigate through these crisis moments whether they impact you directly or those around you. Join us for a two-day event to equip you to deal with the brokenness in you or help those around you.
