Life Support Mentors

A Ministry of Fresh Beginnings Ministries
There are times when loneliness, depression and isolation seem like the only way to live. It is in those dark times of the soul that it is critical to have a friend; someone who takes the time to hear you and “come along side” without judgment or ridicule. This relationship is at times, the only solution to the difficulties of life.
This is why Fresh Beginnings Ministries has created “Life Support.” A ministry dedicated to being a friend when needed. It is an individual “one-on-one” ministry supported by trained and caring people who have a heart for hurting people. The Life Support team has a mission to encourage and care for those who are in a rough stage of life and simply need someone to call upon when the dark times of life come.

In Life Support we are friends and mentors. We never “rescue,” rather, we seek to “empower” people who have given up in life; maybe not to the point of suicide, but no longer have a desire to strive to make life better today than yesterday. They no longer dream or feel they have a purpose in life. Through loss of job, possessions or family the darkness they feel cannot be defeated and life is accepted the way it is.

The Life Support Mentor works individually with these people. We seek out those people who are in this darkness and want to change. Through our efforts and empowerment they find a small glimmer of light and work to make today better than yesterday and tomorrow better than today. 

To be called as a Life Support Team member is a tug at your heart from the Holy Spirit. It is a calling; if there is any doubt about your qualifications, this is the very reason you should take part in this training. There is someone whom you have not yet met that only you can show compassion in a way they will understand.
