How has The Journey impacted others?
"The Journey gave me great hope. It was a safe environment to share my experiences and be accepted, loved, pursued and challenged to change."
"The Journey has been the most valuable tool I've experienced since becoming a believer."
"I'm convinced everyone should attend!"
"As a result of the healing I experienced, my relationships with God, friends and family are becoming more real, deeper and healthier!"
"The Journey was a real lesson in how quickly you can care about people when lives are shared honestly."
Who endorses The Journey?
Over 25 different church denominations, numerous organizations, missions, pastors and counselors have both experienced and recommended The Journey.
Dr. Dan Allender, founder of Mars Hill
Graduate School, professor of counseling, popular speaker and prolific author says: "Few ministries are as innovative and thoroughly biblical as Open Hearts and their The Journey training. It will be eminently worth your time and effort."
ALTS stands for Alumni Leader Training Seminar and takes place concurrent to The Journey. This is an opportunity during training week for active leaders who've participated previously in The Journey and desire more in-depth training.
The Journey Continues
This training runs concurrently with The Journey and covers the material in the second 12 week curriculum. It is designed for The Journey alumni who want to go deeper in their healing journey and who are considering the use of this curriculum for their groups at home. The training material covered is the same as the basic The Journey program, but there are separate teaching sessions that correspond with the The Journey Continues guide. Participants should be ready to work on their stories in great detail, willing to face lies believed and self-protective vows made that keep them from a deeper trust in God and others.
For spouses who have each been through The Journey as individuals and are now ready to look at how their stories are impacting their marriage. This seminar covers a special curriculum with trained facilitators who lead exercises designed to increase honest communication at a heart level.
