Caring Well is a ministry designed by Henderson Hills serve the women, men, and children in the congregation who have experienced domestic violence (physical and/or emotional), spiritual, and sexual abuse.
This ministry strives to:
Raise the church body's awareness of abuse, Christ's position on abuse, and provide ministry to those who have experienced abuse and/or trauma.
Connect victims to services such as police, shelters, counselors, lawyers, financial advisors, and other needed resources.
Promote on-going discipleship by integrating the victim into the church body for continued ministry.
Need to talk with someone?
If you would like to talk with someone regarding abuse:
- Call 911 if you are in danger
- Visit moj.com/counseling
- Call a minister of our church at (405) 513-7584
We are looking for people who would like to be Care Partners - men and women who would like to walk alongside others who have gone through, or are currently going through, an abuse situation or trauma. These volunteers are trained, background checked, and are not considered counselors nor required or encouraged to counsel. The needs may include ministering to a victim by pointing them back to God's Word and His truths, be available to listen, possibly go to court with them as encouragement and support, or to simply pray for them. Each situation is unique and we will pair Care Partners appropriately and on a case-by-case basis to benefit the abused. If you're interested in becoming a Care Partner please email Mallory Stulce.
Recognizing & Reporting
Recognizing & Reporting (R&R) training is a mandatory qualification for every person working with children (birth - 5th grades), students (6th grade - college), and vulnerable adults at Henderson Hills. It is also required for Adult Community Group leaders, Worship Ministry volunteers, Hillside Café volunteers, and all Ministries of Jesus Ministry volunteers.
Early childhood classrooms are staffed with two people at all times and are regularly monitored by supervisory staff. Before working with children, each volunteer leader and paid staff member must undergo a background check, interview, and reference check and complete 'Recognizing & Reporting' training.
