Bringing emotional and physical healing through prayer ministry, teaching, training, material provision and evangelism.
To bring emotional healing to those who have been traumatized by sexual abuse and support their families through teaching, emotional support, listening, prayer and discipleship in the Christian faith. We will endeavor to recruit and train up others to minister to do the same.
We also endeavor to prevent abuse in all forms by helping people through education, discipleship, training and prayer ministry to strengthen their families and individual lives.
HOW? – THE ACTIVITIES
-provide healing discipleship (pastoral counsel) and prayer individually
Take ministry teams to other countries, to train others to minister to the broken-hearted and strengthen families through events (seminars), teaching materials with specialized training for professionals such as policemen and social workers.
Facilitating evangelism efforts both on small and large scales. This includes but is not limited to evangelistic campaigns to reach people for Christ as a means of true healing.
Create outreach teams that will provide an opportunity for intensive growth and discipleship for individuals who are struggling with emotional and relational brokenness.
Discipleship and personal counsel is not just about healing, but about calling people out of their darkness and into their own destiny and calling. True healing is established when we give it away to others, and therefore it is multiplied. (Mt 10:8 …You have received freely, freely give.)
We hope to promote healing through any possible means that presents itself: evangelism, mercy ministry (food, book, clothing distribution etc. and subsidized referral counseling) – whatever might allow people to pursue healing.
1. Create a curriculum and a book on the emotional healing process from sexual abuse. Create teaching CD’s with key themes. Create a monthly newsletter with teaching articles to raise awareness and interest for further training.
2. Make available information on possible training options (schools, seminars, etc.) and materials they can purchase such as books and teaching CD’s.
3. Create training opportunities (seminars, schools) to learn to minister healing to abuse
survivors (through discipleship and prayer). Possibly create situations where people can
come and be ministered to in a group setting.
THE BIRTH OF HIDDEN TREASURE MINISTRY
The latest missions call the Lord has given us came in 2001 when the Lord called Lisa to minister to survivors of trauma and sexual abuse. Discipleship training has been a big part of our lives, and we saw the need to go deeper in the lives of individuals we train and minister to. The Lord provided a school in Denmark for training. During this same time the Lord expanded Eric’s ministry to include working with men who are sexually addicted. We teach, disciple and partner with various ministries working locally and overseas.

Eric over saw discipleship and training programs. We have discipled hundreds of young people and sent short term mission teams all over the world.
