The average person keeps approximately 13 secrets at a time, five of which they have never told another soul. The most common secrets include sexual behaviors and lies. (Columbia University, 2017)
The time is NOW... no more secrets, no more strongholds!
Worship & Associate Pastor, Michael Monte
"I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the REAL TALK men's group. I wasn't sure what to expect. I promised myself I would go into this group with an attitude that I would get out of it what I put in... and I was going to be open. I learned a lot of things about myself I never really recognized which were affecting my life negatively. Past traumas, hurts, and life experiences were brought up that I never even considered or let myself think about. Through being willing to be open and put everything I had into this group, I have been able to overcome issues and experience growth in many areas of my life personally and even in my marriage. I’m so thankful for Elizabeth and the way she allows the Lord to use her and this program. She was able to pull things out that I didn't even know were there to help me begin the healing process and become the person God created me to be. I was actually sad when our sessions ended because it was so fulfilling, but I have also been filled with excitement to step into all that God has for my life!"
Executive Pastor, Nancy Turpin
"I believe that this program is the missing link for the church. I have been in ministry for over 30 years and have led every area from children and youth, to young adults, seniors and everyone in between... I have seen again and again that life-controlling secrets and shame often stand between them and the freedom they were created to walk in. As the Church, we are the light of the world. We have to have these hard conversations and offer a way for our congregations to heal and process, and protect our children. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I love that we are educating children and those who work with them on how to get help if they're unsafe. We haven't had a tool like this before and we are excited to embrace REAL TALK in our church and community."
Danny Allen, Senior Pastor
"God is at work through REAL TALK! Lives are being impacted! The experience has brought healing, a closeness of believers, and is opening up doors of ministry that I never anticipated. The experience has deepened the relationship of our leaders and is allowing me to shepherd them at a deeper level."
Glendy Emmanuel, Young Adult & Youth Leader
"This was a powerful experience for me. I highly recommend this program. It helped me analyze feelings I hadn't processed before and learn how to deal with them in a healthy way. I've used what I learned in all of my relationships, most importantly, my marriage. God really used my group to change my life. I think that, as men, we often believe discussing our experiences and emotions on a deeper level is only for women. That is a lie! My mind and perspective on that has been forever changed. REAL TALK has helped me become a healthier individual and opened my mind and heart to things that I never thought would be possible."
Women's Ministry Leader, Teresa
"I wish I could put in to words the impact this has had on me. It was far beyond what I expected. As Elizabeth spoke, I could hear and see the freedom and truth that she walks in. I have gathered such strength and courage to speak up for myself and tell my story. I feel more confident, courageous and honest. I see light at the end of the tunnel. I walked in a deep, deep darkness from the child sexual abuse in my life and continued abuses. I didn’t even realize how much darkness I walked in until I stepped in to the light."
REAL TALK empowers churches to bring light into dark places. This turnkey program equips churches and builds an environment for leaders, men, women, teens and children to live in unparalleled freedom, openness and connection. REAL TALK creates a pathway for K-12th graders to be protected from the cycle of abuse that destroys lives from the inside out, and gives leaders and adults in your congregation a safe place to process and heal.
Church members are longing to hear more REAL TALK and the stakes are too high not to take action now. God loves the Church and has called us to walk in transparency and power over secrets, shame, abuse, addiction and more. It is time for the Church to be bold and start leading the conversations that the enemy has taken over, providing a place where people can truly show up with all of who they are, feel loved with unconditional acceptance, and be empowered to step into freedom from past trauma and abuse.
