Be in Health Real Solutions Tour 2019

We want to invite you, your friends, and your family to join us in 2019 to attend 1 of 16 conferences we are doing nationwide on our Real Solutions Tour. There you will learn the foundations for healing and restoration in every area of your life and find the Real Solutions you have been looking for.

Friday, April 26, 1PM through Saturday, April 27, 6PM
DoubleTree by Hilton-Cincinnati Airport | 2826 Terminal Dr. Hebron, Kentucky

Many people have come to us after many years of trying everything, frustrated and tired, but were rejuvenated with hope and experienced lasting healing they found nowhere else.

Along with teaching we will also be doing laying on hands ministry at the end of each conference to allow our Father to come and work powerfully in our brothers and sisters lives.

There is no fee to attend. Freewill offerings will be taken and our resources will be available for purchase.

During the conference, we will have two exclusive Q&A events with the Be in Health® team. Dinner Friday evening and lunch Saturday afternoon. Seating is limited so reserve your seat today!

For information, see the Be in Health website.

Dr. Henry Wright and Be in Health® would love to teach you how to be an overcomer: to come alongside you and show you how to recognize the root issues behind disease and to overcome the works of the enemy in your life. Issues like, bitterness, rejection and fear, anxiety, and stress (just to name a few) that break down relationships and lead to disease.

May we lead you into restored relationships with God, others and even yourself?

We believe that when your spirit is healed and recovered that your body with follow suit. Thousands of people are healed and whole because of the principles they’ve learned here at Be in Health®. And we strive to provide a safe, nurturing environment for you, our brothers and sisters.

If you were given the opportunity to learn not just how to survive but to truly thrive would you take it?

We would like to extend that opportunity to you right now. We invite you to walk with us in our mission to establish generations of overcomers: “May the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:23)

Deeper Still Abortion Healing Retreat – April 2019

One out of three women will have an abortion. Post-abortion stress/trauma can manifest in a number of ways: regret, grief, shame, sadness, anger, anxiety, relational conflicts, substance abuse, and depression. These are all examples of post-abortion stress. Symptoms can surface soon after the abortion or can manifest many years later. Our Deeper Still post-abortion healing retreats offer hope, healing and freedom from the pain and emotional trauma of a past abortion(s).

A recent participant writes this:

“There are no words to describe the overall experience! I am still experiencing so much freedom, so much joy. I’ve been set free by the grace of God. Bless you all for helping me to find this freedom.”

The next retreat is April 26–28th. Spaces are available for both women and men. For more information, visit the Living Alternatives website to download a registration packet. You can also email laurie@hopeforafuture.com or call (309) 212-1442.

When God Roared

In 2004, a dear sister in Christ wrote a book called When God Roared.

In its chapters, she unfolds the healing path God walked her along to step-by-step overcome childhood abuse and its fallout. This is the path standing open to you in your journey to know your Father and His abiding, ministering love.

Now, 13 years later, we are making this book available online for the first time.

Each day, we will publish a fresh page from this book.

Come back often, and share with a friend!

The journey has only just begun…

When God Roared

To sign up for a small group, email stephaniefischvogt@hotmail.com with the name of the group you are interested in. For more information about any of these small groups, contact Judson Road Christian Church at (765) 236-0671 or visit them on Facebook or on their website.

The Old Testament book of Hosea is “a story about an unlikely couple; an unusual marriage, a man in love, and an illicit affair. The story of Hosea and his wife will shock you and warm your heart. The story of Israel and God in the book of Hosea will frustrate you and then fill you with hope.” Childcare is available on request ($2 per child).

This small group will be based on “The Truth and Islam” class at Summit Theological Seminary. “Islam has been a growing and alarming feature in the news. What exactly do they teach? Isn’t Allah just another name for the same God we serve? What does the Koran actually teach? Is Islam a peaceful or violent religion? How do we talk to a Muslim about Jesus?” Come find answers to these and other questions!

Who is God by Francis Chan

This small group will center on Biblical, practical instruction and discussion. “Ready or not, we are looking at a big transition. The best thing for the church is for the new minister to succeed! Forty years in the ministry uniquely qualifies Gary to offer important insights into how we can make that happen!” If needed, childcare will be arranged.

 

Weird by Craig Groeshel

Leaders: Jason and Annie Double
For: Anyone
Days: Mondays (2/15-3/21) at 6:30 p.m.
Time: 6:30-8PM
Place: TBA
Cost: FREE

Normal just isn’t working. Normal people are stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Many of their relationships are at best strained and in most cases just surviving. Even though we live in one of the most prosperous places on earth, normal is still living paycheck to paycheck and never getting ahead. When it comes to God, the majority believe in Him, but the teachings of Scripture rarely make it into their everyday lives. Simply put, normal isn’t working. In this six-session study, Groeschel’s WEIRD views will help you break free from the norm to lead a radically abnormal (and endlessly more fulfilling) life.

 

For more information about any of these small groups, contact Judson Road Christian Church at (765) 236-0671 or visit them on Facebook or on their website.

Defy Geography! Join an Online Small Group

We’ll be kicking off the new year with ReFrame, a short series Summit Ministries recommends for drilling down into what it means to be a Biblical Christian: “We’re trying to inculcate God’s story in you so deeply that when something happens, you just instinctively react with the character of God… You don’t have to think about it because it’s who you are!”

Since we come from quite a few different cities, we’ll be doing ReFrame as an online small group. Please answer the following information so we can pick a night that works best for you!

Share Your Thoughts!

Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)

What does a full life look like? How can Afikomag be part of that? We’d love to hear your thoughts! Take the poll below, and feel free to share more details in the comments!
