TRUE STORIES MINISTRIES
Learn, Love & Live Your TRUE Story
Since 2013, TRUE Stories Ministries has partnered with individuals, churches, universities and other non-profits across the United States, and in several foreign countries, to help people…Learn, Love & Live their TRUE Stories.
Why do we believe in the importance of Story? Psychologists have discovered that stories are how we think, learn, process and make meaning of life. Our stories tell us who we are, our identity; why we are here, which is our purpose; and where we belong.
Our mission defined by the acronym TRUE is to see God:
Transform Lives by
Redeeming Stories and
Unleashing Purpose resulting in
Exponential Impact as those lives contagiously affect others
What we have seen happen is that as people learn their story from Jesus' perspective, they begin to be able to love themselves, others and the Lord at a deeper level. As they see Him use the pain in their stories as a platform to birth purpose in their lives, they begin to live in their TRUE Story playing an important role in His Story!
RETREATS & PROGRAMS
Making A Difference
What is your story? Have you wondered if your story matters? TRUE Stories Ministries believes YOUR STORY is of great value, and we know your story is part of a much bigger story.
In our Story Retreats, TRUE Stories uses various methods to engage all types of learners such as, brief teachings, hands-on experience, journaling, reflection time, and group interactions. We hope to help people in this process see the Truth of our stories from God's perspective, identifying lies that have held us captive, replacing them with His Truth, seeing His grace throughout our stories, and discovering the freedom of living in our TRUE identity and purpose!

In 2020, the pandemic created challenges for us to gather in large groups for retreats. However, more than ever, women need opportunities to connect and find freedom from the things that hinder them from walking fully in their calling. So we have adapted our retreat experience into a journey for small groups to take together.
What is the purpose of this journey? To put it simply, it is for your life to be transformed by the ongoing redemption of your story. For you to learn how to use your story as a tool for evangelism and discipleship. And as a result, see other lives transformed as their stories intersect yours.

“Maybe nothing is more important than that we keep track of
these stories of who we are and where we have come from and
the people we have met along the way because it is precisely
through these stories that God makes himself known to each of
