The impact of Bible-based Trauma Healing—
You might be wondering if training to be a Trauma Healing Group Facilitator and setting up a healing group in your church is worth the effort. Will people actually come to the group and will they find it helpful?
It is easy to feel daunted about the prospect of starting a new ministry within a church and wondering what the outcomes will be.
‘Everyone was so supportive of each other’
June, a Trauma Healing group guest from one of our healing groups in Scotland has shared her story of how she found the healing group experience:
“I found the group to be everything and more than I hoped it would be. At first, I wondered if it was the right group for me as it wasn’t a death I was grieving, but a loss of relationships. However, heart trauma is heart trauma, however it comes about and working through it with a strong biblical base, was eye opening. We were a small group of around 12 and we were seated around tables in smaller groups. This really helped us get to know one another, week by week. Everyone was so supportive of each other knowing we all shared one thing, a heart that had trauma.
“I would highly recommend this resource to anyone struggling to come to terms with Heart Trauma. The Bible has so much to say about it and it’s not a new thing. It’s been around since Satan tempted Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden which led to the fall of man.
“It’s also comforting to know that you are not the only person struggling and the support from others in the group was just what I needed (but didn’t know I needed it beforehand).”
People across Scotland, just like June, have benefitted from the Bible-based studies and discussions that Trauma Healing groups offer. But there are many more people who have also experienced trauma and are looking for healing and wholeness. Investing in a trauma healing ministry in your church can work wonders as heart trauma is shared and pain can be worked through in a safe space with other people.
