Goshen Renewal Ministries exists to bring hope, healing, renewal and transformation to men who suffer from spiritual, psychological, and/or emotional pain by learning the love and joy of Jesus Christ in a peaceful rural environment through Christian discipleship, professional counseling, practical life skills, and connecting to the community.
of the Holy Spirit
God has given us a purpose – “But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you” (Acts 26:16, NKJV)
of Jesus Christ
and give glory to God
We can find victory in the power of the Holy Spirit – “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you” (Romans 8:11, NKJV).
GRM believes the following seven pillars represent the values we hope to aspire to have, in the local culture of the GRM, as we do community together.
Our vision is to draw people near to Jesus Christ in order to experience healing, renewal, and freedom, discovering their identity and fulfilling their God-given destiny.
we care for
The same as Christ, we came to serve others – “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45, NKJ)
Goshen Renewal Ministries (GRM) is a non-denominational Christian group home for men that offers discipleship in a Rural Farm setting. Here, men come to work on both their walk with Jesus Christ and their controlling issues, as they learn to honour God, and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. GRM also includes work on the farm, in an honouring, non-threatening, up-lifting manner. Men learn to relate to one another in a constructive way, building one another, as they learn, practice and live our core values.
Christ is at the center of all we do – “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6, NKJV)
Helping each other grow in community, as one body – “from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:16, NKJV).
At Goshen, we want to bring glory to God, in everything we do – “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31, NKJV)
Our love is for God, and no other – “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” (Colossians 3:23, NKJV).
