Barna Research defines trauma as “an act of extreme violence or abuse, or a near-death experience, that produces intense fear, helplessness, or horror.”

More than one-in-four adults in the United States – including Christians – have experienced a traumatic event. But many churches aren’t a place of healing.

“I think our churches have to start teaching and preaching on this, and how to use faith to combat the fear and lies that the enemy is using to subjugate people,” Dean Vander Mey of Set Free Ministries says.

“Jesus is saying, ‘I’ve come to heal you,’ but the Church has to be prepared to be agents of healing as well.”
