Restoring Hope Ministries has been established to help those who are broken find wholeness in Christ through biblical counseling.  RHM is operating as an extension ministry of Central Church of Christ in Findlay, Ohio.

Over the last 25 years, we’ve had the privilege of serving in ministries both internationally and domestically.  Over this time, we’ve seen and experienced the liberation of people from their deepest hurts as they surrender themselves to God.  Restoring Hope Ministries exists to reconcile people to God and one another.  This is done through biblical counseling (Restoring Hope in Hancock County Ohio), conferences (Married Life Conference & Your Secret Name Conference), marriage intensive retreats (Married Life Retreat), and discipleship.  Our mission for ministry, borrowed from David Putman, is to live like Jesus, love like Jesus and leave what Jesus left behind which are others who live and love like Him.

Living – Walking with those that are seeking restoration and reconciliation.

Loving – Helping the hurting to find healing and hope.

Leaving – Equipping people to pass along the hope and healing they found in Jesus.
