On Sunday, I was privileged to be with the congregation at Redeeming Life Ministries in Rock Hill, SC to teach them about ACES. My 45 minute teaching was during the normal sermon time.
Bishop Ronnie Duncan from Garden of Shalom ministry accompanied me and together we shared our insight about ACES and had a special time of ministering to members of the congregation after my presentation.
God sure was with us in a powerful way as deep inner healing was experienced by many who were present!
Ronnie and I received Master ACES Trainer training from the Children's Trust of South Carolina in the Summer and afterwards the two of us committed to working together in the Rock Hill area of South Carolina to inform people in churches and ministries about ACES. In my talk on Sunday, I used several slides and the associated script from ACE Interface that we received in our Master Training class. I also used content from the PathWay 2 Wholeness Bible Study that I have developed.
The mission of Redeeming Life Ministries is "Redeeming Life in a Hurting World." (their logo is used as the image in this post) And so our message about ACEs was certainly fitting!
In two weeks, we will be starting a weekly series to address the biblical solution for those who might be struggling with spiritual risk factors that stem from being affected by early life trauma. Spiritual issues, or issues of the heart, such as bitterness, shame, anxiety, low self worth, etc. The insight I have gained in the last 20 years as Founder Faith and Health Connection ministry is that important principles of the Christian Faith and a deep and intimate relationship with Jesus is the best remedy for healing and increased resilience for those who have experienced ACES.
If there is enough interest, based on Comments to this post, I'd be happy to share here my Power Point Slides and script that I used on Sunday.
