We are honored you are considering starting a HealingStrong group in your community. Our HealingStrong Group Leaders are part of an incredible network of holistic thrivers, caregivers, and practitioners, connecting through a shared desire to educate, equip and empower others to heal and stay strong: body, soul and spirit.
We are a non-profit organization and our heart is to help establish a community of support and healing.
When you decide to become a HealingStrong Group Leader, we will support you every step of the way. It’s easy to register and we offer many resources and provide guidance to bring a HealingStrong support group to your community.
HealingStrong Groups are the heart of our community, and our Group Leaders affirm our core values as part of the process to lead a HealingStrong group.
Core value 1 : We believe the God of the Bible is our Healer.
HealingStrong believes God saves, heals, loves, and cares immeasurably for each person, as evidenced through the gift of life, death, and resurrection of His son, Jesus. To understand God’s desire for healing, we must seek His wisdom through His word and prayer.
Core Value 2 : Knowledge is power, and knowledge with application is life changing.
HealingStrong encourages prayerful examination of the information presented in the curriculum for one to consider how it might be incorporated into their individual healing. We believe that each person should become educated to make their own decisions about their health and walk in confidence towards what they are learning.
Core Value 3 : True healing involves body, soul and spirit.
Healing involves addressing three areas of physical, emotional and spiritual needs. You cannot heal one and forget the other. We believe that God designed us as spirit beings with a soul, living in a body. Our body is what connects us to the physical world and what we need to function. Our soul is our mind, will and emotions and is interconnected to the spirit. Our spirit is what was created to commune with and have fellowship with God.
“I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.” 3 John 1:2
Core Value 4 : Personal experience is critical.
All of our leaders of the organization, including Group Leaders have personal experience with natural therapies. Our individual experiences provide insight and can give hope to others when shared.
Core Value 5 : Meetings educate, equip, encourage and empower.
HealingStrong uses a structured format for our meetings, including lesson plans and supporting resources explored in a small group setting. While leaders use the HealingStrong curriculum as their foundation and guide, we encourage group autonomy by personalizing lessons with local speakers, testimonials and resources.
Core Value 6 : Meetings are not commercialized and are freely shared.
Groups are offered to individuals freely and all who want to explore natural healing in an educational, encouraging and empowering environment are welcome. Some Group Leaders do have businesses related to the context of HealingStrong; however, Group Leaders are not allowed to sell or promote their business at the HealingStrong meetings or in their role as a HealingStrong Group Leader.
The one-time registration fee for group leaders is $99.
Please note that if the fee is cost prohibitive, we don’t want it to stop you from serving as a Group Leader. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for opportunities for scholarships. If you would be interested in donating to support a Group Leader Scholarship, please consider a donation today.
