Our Staff

Meet the Staff behind Peaceful Heart Ministries

Our staff are dedicated to helping individuals reach new heights in your personal life and spiritual walk with Jesus. With 20 years experience we’ve seen every level of human brokenness. You’re not alone or past redemption. Help is near!

If you are living in bondage, addiction and sin, the devil would lead you to believe that nobody will understand. If you believe that nobody else struggles in the same way you do, and that there really is no solution. If you’re not able to stop your actions or don’t even understand them and need someone to listen. If you don’t know where a safe understanding place is to go for help and advice, if these thoughts occupy your mind, please reach out to us!
