Communicate God's Love to Those Who Suffer
A teenager is hospitalized after a drug overdose. A man is charged with assault and battery after he beats his wife. A woman struggling with alcoholism wonders if this drink will be her last. Addiction and abuse are all too prevalent in our communities and, yes, even our churches. Fuller's theologically-centered area of interest in recovery ministry focuses on spiritual, emotional, and physical healing. Whether your heart is for people dealing with addiction, abuse, or trauma, we empower you to reach out to them with sensitivity, wisdom, and spiritual maturity.
