Journey Groups provide a safe place where stories of pain and abuse can be spoken, heard and redeemed. A 10-week commitment is required.

Class Format

This class is actually small group work - 2 leaders and up to 6 group members - so your commitment to consistent 10-week attendance is imperative. 1 - 2 hours of homework outside of class each week. Please carefully consider the commitment before applying.
