What is R.E.S.T.O.R.E and Why is it Needed?R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Logo

Melissa Benjamin, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Director

Having worked with teenagers for the past 10 years, 7 of which have been facilitating and developing R.E.S.T.O.R.E., I have seen the damaging decay and effect our world has had on them. In response, and out of a desperate need to effectively minister to and restore them, I have developed a program that addresses those needs from a Biblical standpoint and equips students to address future needs and issues we all know they will certainly encounter throughout life.

Obviously, as Christians we believe in restoration of lives through Jesus Christ. Out of that belief and word came the basis of the acronym RESTORE, each letter representing what this group and ministry hopes to offer to each individual student.

REVIVE - Psalm 85:6
EVALUATE - Stresses the importance of honest evaluation of our lives
SUPPORT - Proverbs 27:17; The need for a godly support system
TRUST - Stresses the importance of where we place our trust
OVERCOME - John 16:33; The victories overcome through R.E.S.T.O.R.E.
RENEW - Psalm 51:10; How lives are renewed through R.E.S.T.O.R.E.
ENCOURAGE - Psalm 10:1; The need for believers to lift up & encourage one another

Director, Melissa Benjamin is excited to help Sr. High Students learn how to deal with issues they face in a positive and biblical manner. If you would like more information about RESTORE contact scasey@bereanfamily.com, or call the Student Ministries office 419-756-5082.
