Truth Encounter is a form of meditative prayer effective in helping a Christian who may struggle with addictions, anxiety, anger, depression, self-worth or perfectionism.
The process is led by a trained facilitator who uses the Bible to guide the practice and evaluate results.
Truth Encounter Facts
- Some Christians are “broken” Christians; they struggle with addictions, anger, anxiety, depression, self-worth, or perfectionism. These issues are often “symptoms” of unresolved or improperly resolved childhood trauma. In turn, the symptoms then negatively affect their marriage and other relationships, as well.
- Most broken Christians attend church and may read the Bible, pray & visit Christian groups & gatherings.
- Many broken Christians never mention their issues to friends, family or non-professionals because they are ashamed or frightened of what other Christians will think of them.
- Many broken Christians seek help from a pastor or counselor and still cannot overcome their issues.
- Most broken Christians can be helped with Truth Encounter.
