Bible-Based Trauma Healing

Setting People Free

When people hear God speak, wounded hearts are healed and disrupted lives are restored.

Profound heartache, grief, depression, toxic memories, and anger hold people captive of trauma. Granting forgiveness seems impossible, and the path to freedom is blocked. Bible-Based Trauma Healing turns down the noise, unlocks the prison of helpless isolation, and provides a path that enables people to embrace a new era of living in God’s love.

The Canadian Bible Society is investing in training and resourcing people to establish Bible-based Trauma Healing Facilitators across Canada. Pastors, volunteers, ministry staff, and lay leaders from churches across Canada will be equipped with this proven methodology and will help thousands of people In Canada find themselves freed from the distress, helplessness, and intense fear of trauma.

Healing Through Scripture

Trauma Healing ministry draws on the restorative power of God’s Word. The Bible-based curriculum includes basic mental health concepts to help participants identify their pain, share their suffering, bring their pain to the cross of Christ for healing, and, for cases where the trauma was caused by the actions of another person, learn to forgive their oppressors.

Become a BBTH Facilitator

Many people want to help others heal but it takes knowledge and skill to help people who are in pain, without hurting them more. If you feel called to help others who are suffering from the pain of trauma, register for one of our next trainings and events.

The Canadian Bible Society is developing a network of facilitators who can be deployed to lead trauma healing sessions around the country. The more people who take Apprentice Facilitator training the more groups there will be, and the more people who will be helped.

More information about the process to become a BBTH facilitator coming soon.

“I was asked by a friend to go visit a man that I don’t even know. This person was about to commit suicide. I used the BBTH Training techniques I learnt last week: the listening skills, grieving and bringing the pain to the cross. This person gave his life to Christ, received his first Bible and is now seeking help to get back to a better life after he was laid off from his job. I am so thankful for this training, it is so powerful and great. Praise be to the Lord.”
