“Where can I go to share my pain and struggle? Will anyone listen to me? How can I deal with my struggle? I’m alone, and afraid to tell anyone what’s really happening in my heart.”
Such thoughts and questions plague many Christians. The Journey discipleship and prayer ministry helps individuals experience Christ in their relational and sexual struggles.
Through weekly times of worship, teaching and small group prayer, the program’s leaders walk with and pray with participants in their struggle so they can experience God’s compassion, truth and wisdom.
The program also explores the roots of various emotional and sexual issues (such as abuse, self-hatred, marital problems, addictions, self-identified unwanted same-sex attraction, pornography and co-dependency) which can trap individuals in unhealthy ways of feeling, thinking and living.
The leaders pray for God’s restoring love to touch the broken areas of participants’ lives so that they can cultivate a strong sense of identity in Christ and engage in healthy relationships according to His design. (A closed-group format and confidentiality policy ensure trust and safety in the small groups.)
Who’s it for?
Anyone can enrol in the six-month Journey Discipleship Course (or a shorter Pilot Course where applicable), particularly those who are willing to embrace the reality of their current situation, be open with others about their life, and deepen their relationship with Jesus. The Journey Discipleship Course is the core offering of the ministry, and is recommended for all people.
The Journey Discipleship Course was previously known as the Living Waters Program.
Participants apply and are interviewed prior to their enrolment in the program. On the first evening of the program, participants receive a manual, which includes these topics:
- Receiving the Father’s love
- Naming and confessing our sins
- Understanding the false self
- Exploring the roots of our struggles
- Healing from abuse
- Forgiving others
- Confronting addiction and temptation
- Living as healthy men and women
- Embracing the church as a healing place
