Your support makes our mission possible!
Your gift supports the vision of a Christian culture where victims of abuse and traumatic betrayal are shown an empathetic journey to healing and forgiveness that fosters intimacy with Christ & sustainable transformation.
Mission EDIFY operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Women's Non-profit Alliance, a 501(c)3 parent organization.
Greetings good people! (My pastor, Father Richard, who passed away last December, used to say that.)
The original plan was to have the Mission EDIFY website up and running before I came back, but it's taking longer than I anticipated. So, I've decided to house most of the information here a little while longer.
I think most of us are ready to have 2020 behind us. 2021 will be the launch of a new outreach mission, and it's messy. It's messy because trying to raise awareness about the needs of adult survivors of child abuse is not easy. 1) Almost no one wants to talk about it (present company included, believe it or not). 2) Many ministry leaders, pastors, and clergy are unaware of the survivors in their flocks, or worse they look the other way. 3) A lot of survivors secretly wish that the effects of child abuse will go away in time.
See what I mean? It's a messy mission I'm compelled to pursue. It even reflects in the logo. More updates to come.
Please pray for me as I pray for you.
