Real Life Stories

That first step into the unknown is the hardest part. It can be hard walking through the door to Re:generation, signing up for re|engage or a Marriage Workshop, and committing to volunteer in a ministry.
Real Life Ministries is wants to make that first step easier. By sharing our stories and giving you the information you need, we want you to feel comfortable the moment you take that first step. Familiar faces and a few names make a world of difference.
We believe that deep authentic relationships using Jesus’ discipleship method builds a sense of community. In turn, that community develops an openness for desiring change, which moves people towards healthy responses and choices. That is the driving force behind our restoration ministry. 
I hope these pages inspire you to be an advocate, admit you need help, or to use your talents to volunteer in

If you have any questions reach out to us at:

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts 
than your thoughts.

ISAIAH 55:8-9
