The Brushfires Foundation is dedicated to helping pastors and churches develop a culture of transparency, honesty, engagement, and healing for sexual and relational pain.
According to a recent Barna survey commissioned by The Brushfires Foundation and TrueNorth Freedom Project:
- Seven in ten pastors believe that it is extremely important for Christians to have a comprehensive biblical understanding of God's design for sexuality and relationships.
- Two-thirds of pastors strongly agree that the Church should be responsible for helping people deal with issues relating to sexual sin or sexual brokenness.
- Yet, only five percent of pastors surveyed demonstrated a high level of engagement on topics relating to sexuality. One quarter had done nothing intentional in the past year.
Brushfires was founded to equip churches to engage well on these sensitive and challenging issues. We offer a number of services and programs to help churches create a climate of openness, honesty, trust, and courage where people feel free to share their deepest pain and walk toward healing with the help of Jesus Christ and others in the safe environment of a local church.
We are eager to partner with you to accomplish this in your church.
Ways we can help:
Use the form below to share more about your church situation. Let us know about the challenges you are facing or what kind of assistance you seek. We will schedule a follow-up call to discuss your needs and develop a follow up plan, if needed. This service is free and requires no further commitment on your part.
Create a ministry plan for your church
Changing a church culture doesn’t happen with a quick-fix approach. Sexual issues are highly charged, often politically informed, and deeply personal. It takes time and careful planning to begin to address these issues with sensitivity, compassion, truth, and trust. Let us know about your church situation and we can help you develop a ministry plan tailor-made to your unique situation.
We can visit your church to offer specialized training to staff and lay leaders, give talks and presentations, or do a church-wide engagement for an evening, a day, or an entire weekend. Use the contact form to let us know how we can serve you.
We stay connected to churches and leaders as long as they need support and services.
