Myrtle Ministries is not a ministry for standard counseling such as Marriage & Family, even though those things do play a part in what we do.
We specialize in spiritual warfare in a three-pillar model with inner healing and discipleship, to women and married couples. We do not work with single men in individual, in-person ministry at this time. Groups and/or online training are considered.
We work with clients who strongly desire a deeper relationship with Yeshua Jesus but have some challenges that have held them back such as trauma that seems to never fully heal, anxiety that prevents them from accomplishing spiritual goals, or even supernatural attack.
Since spiritual warfare is the call upon every mature believer according to scripture but the teaching has been removed from most pulpits, most believers no longer have the tools to battle effectively against the dark forces that never tire from plotting torment for the human race.
Many ministries offer either counseling or deliverance. If you go for biblical counseling without the deliverance you may work through a life issue but the spiritual warfare attached to it is never addressed, which can limit healing or make the results temporary. If you go to a deliverance ministry and break spiritual bondage but never utilize counseling to address the negative life patterns that opened the spiritual doors in the first place, you are open to worse attack. (Luke 11:24-26)
In addition, if the counselors of either type of ministry do the work for you or don't provide discipleship, the client leaves without being empowered with the tools to never again be in bondage.
This is an intense process, quite literally akin to spiritual boot camp. A commitment of time, energy, and intent is required. We can't do the work for you, we walk alongside you while you learn to do it for yourself.
Even though it may be surprising to some, breaking spiritual bondage is actually the easy part. It is the restructuring, the sifting, removing negative life patterns and replacing them with God-honoring patterns that is the most challenging. That is where the counseling and the discipleship really comes in and is the game-changer for a life lived in freedom.
In our view, any of the three pillars alone is incomplete and even two do not have the strength of three; the three-stranded cord is not easily broken, Eccl 4:12.
