The Wellness Center is founded on the belief that we were created to share with one another in our burdens and that true healing and peace is given to us by God. We are here to offer care and support in group and seminar settings to address a variety of concerns. 

 

Wellness Groups

 

Betrayal & Beyond

Betrayal & Beyond is a trauma recovery group for women on Tuesday nights at 7:00pm in the Crossroads sanctuary. This group is designed to be a supportive place for women to process and heal from the pain and trauma of being in a relationship with a pornography or sex addict. To find out if this group is a good fit for you, or for questions, please contact Vicki Greenfield at (208) 870-8485, or vicki@puredesire.org.


Conquer Series

For the first time in history, a cinematic teaching series on sexual integrity is here to help men get to the root of bondage, while offering proven principles and practical tools to walk in freedom from sin, like pornography. This series helps men understand and walk out a biblical view of sexuality. The world’s view of sexuality has created an epidemic in our culture and within the church. This class is for those that are struggling and those that may not be, but want to be knowledgeable about how to help those that are struggling. To sign up, contact Stephen Ammann at ammanncounseling@gmail.com.

Pure Desire


Unraveled: Managing Love, Sex, and Relationships

We all want to experience genuine relationship—to feel loved and accepted for who we are. We give and give in relationships only to be left feeling disappointed and alone. Our negative sexual experiences and mistakes from our past hold us hostage, keeping us stuck in unhealthy relationship patterns. Is there any hope? Unraveled: Managing Love, Sex, and Relationships guides women through the process of healing—exploring how our past pain and trauma, family of origin, and life circumstances shape how we behave in relationships. Walk with us as we discover the truth of God’s love and allow Him to transform our story through the power of His grace. Together we’ll learn how to live an authentic, sexually healthy life. This group begins July 24th and will meet every Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30pm in room 13. Join the journey today. To sign up, contact Brittney Vela at (951) 445-1659.

Seminars

We periodically offer seminars in partnership with the Impact Center to encourage questions and group dialogue about difficult subjects. These seminars are held for one night, typically on a weekday evening, and include a time for questions and answers following presentations from pastors and guest speakers. We have previously offered seminars on the topics of homosexuality, the LDS faith, and abortion. Check back for upcoming events.
