“Journey to Hope” is a weekend workshop designed to teach Christian believers how to overcome painful experiences (How to Overcome Painful Experiences = HOPE!). Developed by Farrar Moore (graduate degree in Biblical counseling) and Sheryl Cook (graduate degree in Education), both certified Grief Recovery Counsellors, the Journey to Hope workshop was born out of the founders’ own personal experience as they faced the challenges of providing end of life support and care for parents and grandparents. Sara Felushko, Women’s Minister and Certified Grief Recovery Counselor from the Vancouver church of Christ, is licensed by Caring Resources [a 501(c)(3) organization] to deliver the Journey to Hope workshop and train Journey to Hope facilitators. The focus of the workshop is not just for those who feel they are in crisis or struggling openly with life-controlling problems, but is intended to provide practical action steps and support for anyone in the church community — for those who outwardly seem to have it together, but secretly struggle, and those who are thriving regardless of the circumstances.

“Journey to Hope” is appropriate for anyone you know, who may be interested in learning practical skills based on Biblical principles which will help when facing any kind of painful experience. You do not have to be a member of the Seattle church to participate. It’s a great way to introduce friends to the power of God’s word, and a meaningful way to connect with and serve believers in other congregations.
