As the body of Christ, we must respond quickly, comprehensively, appropriately, and compassionately. Multiplying Hope seeks to offer appropriate trauma response from day one. Join Multiplying Hope as it seeks to address the emotional needs of people in crisis with the life-giving healing only God can give.

Healing Conversations are just the first phase of an on-going, integrated program of trauma-informed discipleship and leadership development.
