How much does Heart Garden Ministry Cost?
This ministry is not free; in fact, it is very costly. It is costly for the Ministers who will be giving around 25 hours each of their time. Many are sacrificing greatly in order to be here to minister to you, at times even having to pay for babysitters and other costs to their households.
This ministry is costly for you and we believe you should invest in your own healing. It becomes much more valuable and important to us when we “have skin in the game.” Investing in your own healing not only blesses your Ministers but it shows how much you value the extremely, high price Jesus paid for your healing and freedom. Healing cannot be purchased with money but you can show how much you appreciate and value what Jesus paid for as well as how much you appreciate and value your Minister's time and effort as they spend themselves on your behalf.
So while this ministry is costly, the Lord has made it very clear to us that He does not want us to charge you a set fee. He wants to be the one to tell you how much to give. So we choose to trust you to ask the Lord, "What would you have me to give to bless my Ministers, Lord?" We trust Jesus to show you.
We want to see you healed and set free. We trust in Jesus to provide for our needs. We have seen that when we are obedient to give of our time, our money, and ourselves, we cannot out give God. He will always provide more. He invites you to test Him in this. (Malachi 3:9-11)
Please know that because of the services being provided, your donation will not be a tax deductible gift. Thank you for partnering with Jesus in your healing. Thank you for trusting us to minister to you beside Him.
(As a reference point, Restoring The Foundations in Mt. Juliet, charges $320 for a 3 hour session. A professional counselor charges $40-150 per hour.)
2 Corinthians 9:6-11 (TPT) Here’s my point. A stingy sower will reap a meager harvest, but the one who sows from a generous spirit will reap an abundant harvest. Let giving flow from your heart, not from a sense of religious duty. Let it spring up freely from the joy of giving—all because God loves hilarious generosity! Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do. Just as the Scriptures say about the one who trusts in him: Because he has sown extravagantly and given to the poor, his kindness and generous deeds will never be forgotten.
This generous God who supplies abundant seed for the farmer, which becomes bread for our meals, is even more. extravagant toward you. First he supplies every need, plus more. Then he multiplies the seed as you sow it, so that the harvest of your generosity will grow. You will be abundantly enriched in every way as you give generously on every occasion, for when we take your gifts to those in need, it causes many to give thanks to God.
How do I prepare for my ministry session?
After your turn in your assessment form we will schedule your ministry session(s). Prepare your heart by giving God permission to search your heart and do what He wants to do to bring healing and restoration. Try to keep the day(s) of your ministry as free of busyness and distractions as possible so that you have extra time to spend with the Lord and to rest.
What should I bring with me?
You really don't need anything unless you want to bring a sweater in case you get cool, your Bible, or a water bottle. We are next to a great coffee shop, Red House Coffee if you fancy a coffee or tea. We will also have water available for you.
Is this ministry time confidential?
Yes, we take confidentiality very seriously. We will be asking you to sign a confidentiality form that says that you understand that we are not licensed counselors but that we are lead by the Holy Spirit. Your ministers will also be signing the confidentiality form. The only exclusions to confidentiality include past or ongoing abuse in the case of minors, or current endangerment to self or others, as mandated by state law.
