Out of our own painful journey, God has led us to develop a ministry to hurting parents/grandparents whose pain is caused by the destructive decisions of their teen to adult children.
Especially hit hard are parents involved in full time Christian service. They are not immune to children rebelling and all the emotions and heartache that brings. The ministry includes reaching out to non-believing parents with the good news of the gospel of Christ as the most significant step in their journey to personal peace and hope.
We lead support groups for hurting parents twice a month, blog, send encouraging emails 5-6 times per week, have private meetings and personal phone calls, list resources, recommend books and scripture verses. We also speak at churches and conduct seminars regarding ministering to hurting parents and starting support groups in their own church or community.
Dena is also an affiliate staff with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) serving under Judy Douglass, the president's wife, as the coordinator of Prayer for Prodigals.
