Trauma Healing

Trauma torments more than one in seven people worldwide. In the aftermath of the world’s greatest tragedies—war, famine, domestic violence, abuse—people lose hope. They feel trapped in a cycle of reliving their pain and struggle to believe that God can heal their wounds. But Scripture contains a message of hope that can bring healing.

Through Bible-based trauma healing work carried out in communities around the world, trained facilitators meet people at this point of great suffering and need. The program’s Bible-based curriculum equips facilitators to restore broken lives and transform painful memories into hopeful futures. Thanks to you, this ministry has already empowered more than one million people to find healing in God’s Word.

“I went to the Congo to see Bible-based Trauma Healing. It was the first time in my 30 years of assessment trips, where my expectations were exceeded…I saw remarkable transformation.”
