2015 in Review: Look what we did, on purpose!
Supporters and followers, look what we did on purpose in 2015.
The year 2015 was a growth year for the PurposeHouse (PH) organization. We stretched ourselves and accomplished much with only a volunteer staff. Here is what we did this year—on purpose.
PurposeHouse Christian Counseling (PHCC)
I AM 4 WOMAN Campaign
Using an online crowdfunding tool, PHCC raised funds to minister healing to rape survivors in Kenya.
Permission To Heal
Co-sponsored by PHCC and the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MCASA), the Permission to Heal event raised awareness about sexual assault in the church and the community. The event was held at Action Chapel Baltimore and was open to all. Thanks again to MCASA Women of Color Network for helping to make Permission to Heal a reality.
Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault Women of Color Network Annual Conference
PHCC helped plan the 10th annual MCASA Women of Color Network conference, Connecting the Dots: The Intersectionality of Public Health, Sexual Trauma, & Communities of Color.
The Purpose Institute
PHCC held its second Purpose Institute, a personal, purpose development program that helps participants identify and prioritize their passions, and understand their temperaments, strengths and weaknesses.
PHCC provided Biblical, Christian premarital and abuse recovery counseling to individuals in the state of Maryland.
PurposeHouse Ministries International (PHMI)
PHMI ministered the gospel in:
- Kenya, both at the Beauty for Ashes Conference and to women for IAM 4 WOMAN.
PHMI hosted the PurposeHouse Prayer Positioned Prayerline.
PHMI helped believers grow in their understanding of the Word through its Purpose in the Word Bible Fellowship.
