Our Mission

To help Christians, both clergy and laity, improve the mental, spiritual, and relational health of their families and congregations.



We seek to achieve our mission by providing high-quality education and consultation to Christians on issues related to mental, spiritual, and relational health.



We offer instruction to all Christians on a wide-range of subjects related to mental, relational, and spiritual health. These include, but are not limited to, marriage, relational priorities, psychological trauma, spiritual disciplines, conflict resolution, and relational boundaries.


We help Church leaders develop programs related to family ministry, mental health, and spiritual growth. We can also evaluate the reach and impact of existing programs and work to improve them.
