OUR PROCESS

Our Approach

Regardless of the student or situation, our approach always points to Jesus Christ and emphasizes the process of healing in Him.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you. This is to my Fathers ‘glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.” (John 15: 5-8)

Our Process

TMC creates an individualized plan of recovery steps for each student. Each student is different and each plan is different, but each plan incorporates three elements.

  1. Brokenness: A large percentage of people come to us in crisis. They need to understand their hurt to know how to experience healing. We guide students through the process of change from learned behaviors that lead to unhealthy habits and negative thinking to new thinking, positive thinking, and healthy habits. We help them understand their pain through assessment, self-inventory, and awareness.
  2. Inner Healing: The starting point for healing is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We work with each student to move him into a deeper relationship with Christ. Then, we walk with people through steps to restore their broken hearts through God’s grace. Our discipleship counseling and classes further equip students with tools they need to cultivate healthy relationships with God and others (particularly in the areas of surrender and forgiveness) and move forward.
  3. Deliverance: Healing is an ongoing process. Each student has opportunity to experience freedom in Christ by learning to let go of the past and exchanging dysfunctional/ unhealthy ways of thinking with healthier reactions. To live in freedom means to cultivate a vertical relationship and a new walk with Christ as personal Savior.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plan to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declared the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14)
