Faith Related Concerns

It is normal to have doubts and questions related to faith and God. Many things in life can cause questions about what we believe such as painful life experiences, death or loss, career or job stress/changes, abuse or domestic violence; loss or disability of a child or loved one, feeling isolated or lonely, or simply life not working out like you had planned it.

Many people have experiences with parents, churches, or church leaders that cause a crisis of faith or beliefs.

We know this can be very confusing when it happens with a leader or someone you trust. We see people of faith who are struggling with:

  • Questions about why God allowed painful experiences
  • Experiences of spiritual abuse
  • Disappointment or disillusionment after being hurt by a church, para-church, or ministry organization
  • Concerns that God is angry or disappointed with them
  • Difficulty connecting with God
  • Associating experience of God with experiences of parents or caregivers
  • Feeling unsafe in church or isolated from community because of a difficult life situation like divorce, death of spouse, suicide in the family, or abuse
  • Recovering from an emotionally toxic faith system , organization, or family
  • Depression, anxiety, or high performance expectations
  • Gender roles or sexuality
