Mission: RM serves people who live with chronic illness or pain by providing spiritual, emotional relational and practical support. Rest Ministries also equips church in the US to minister to and with the chronically ill. Through programs and resources we seek to transform hurting Christians into disciples and un-believers into Christians who live with faith and hope.
Target demographics: people with chronic and invisible illness discover the joy and hope that life can hold, despite unpredictability and suffering.
Programs: We are Rest Ministries, an encouragement ministry for those with chronic illness. We provide an oasis of comfort through pain, while nourishing spiritual growth through our peer-to-peer mentoring environment. We embolden churches to confidently and powerfully reach out to the the invisible community of the chronically ill by teaching churches about the chronically ill's challenges and strengths, through tools, resources, and communication. The result it that a church's good intentions are bolstered into the most efficient ways to, not only reach out to the chronically ill, but to have them become an integral and influential part of your community.
