Since 2006 while working in a Cafe ministry together, Pastor Dale and Janis saw the need for more counseling especially for the entire family as young people would ask if Pastor Dale would meet with their parents also.
Renovations began on their current location in March of 2007 with many friends and family members pitching in. Finally the Grand Opening was September 21, 2007.
And so it began and has continued to grow. We are so thankful for all the support we have received both in prayer and financial.
