In the history of HopeQuest, we have experienced seasons of planting, seasons of growth, and seasons of evaluation and pruning. In 2004, HopeQuest went through a season of pruning. Out of that season of evaluation, the Trek program was born. This is a great example of how sometimes it is necessary to prune for the next level of growth to occur.
While for some change brings uncertainty and insecurity, for us, we are anticipating what God has in store for this ministry. God has proven himself faithful as we have remained focused on His calling for us.
As a part of the continued efforts to refine and refocus on the vision which God has called us to, we have made some necessary changes that impact both services we offer and HopeQuest personnel. These changes are:
- The residential transition component of our continuing care program is being scaled back.
We are redirecting energy and resources to improve quality of service being offered TREK clients.
There is a renewed focus towards services, communication, and support for family members of TREK clients.
We are intentionally pursuing the replication of support group options in the local church to expand the number of individuals and families that can be helped in their recovery journey in the context of spiritual community.
We are emphasizing public education of mental health professionals, pastoral counselors, and churches regarding the HopeQuest model and programs through professional training opportunities.
We are so thankful for those who have contributed to HopeQuest as staff, volunteers, donors, and partners. Please continue to pray for us as we make these changes to assure the highest quality care for clients and that we remain dedicated and focused on that which God has specifically called us.
