Description of Agency
REST Ministries seeks to make God real to people who are emotionally hurting, abused, addicted or incarcerated. Sometimes people respond to the hurts in their lives in unhealthy ways like alcohol drug addictions, crime, violence and abuse. There is a better way to respond to emotional and spiritual pain!
REST Ministries seeks to provide a Christian support system of hope and love, not just in words but also "with actions and truth" (1 Jn. 3:18) by offering:
Help for the Church: an equipping ministry
- workshops and resources on topics pertaining to Biblical Restoration
- equipping on how to help people who are hurting, including how to conduct Biblical support groups
Help for the Captive: a prison ministry
- a prison ministry including Bible studies for inmates
- cards of encouragement to incarcerated offenders
- aftercare for ex-offenders once released from prison including mentoring programs
Help for the City: a community outreach ministry
- Biblical discipleship opportunities
- a thrift store ministry to the community of Coatesville, PA (Tabitha's Treasure Chest)
- a tutoring program for basic reading and GED prep along with spiritual mentoring relationships (Wings)
Restoration, Encouragement, and Support through Truth (REST)
"God has truly blessed me by putting you in my life. Your ministry has certainly served many purposes in my life, spiritually, mentally and emotionally."
