RAPHA (Hebrew): to repair, restore, make whole.
Rapha is not just about healing… this journey is about becoming whole. God promises that He can bring lasting wholeness in every area of our lives, transforming us from our inner spirit outward. It is up to each of us to decide if we will partner with Him to become more of the true person we are created to be.
If you have any questions or would like more information about Rapha, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, we also have a list of Frequently Asked Questions that we hope will be a helpful resource for you.

An estimated one in six children experience some form of sexual abuse before the age of sixteen, and although childhood sexual abuse continues to hit the headlines, what we’re made aware of is just the tip of the iceberg. Many others have experienced this tragic abuse as adults, both inside and outside of relationships. Due to the complex nature of sexual abuse people often get stuck in the trauma and struggle finding freedom from it’s effects.
At another level all of us are continually being exposed to and influenced by the abuse of sexuality through various forms of media. It is a much bigger problem than we often realize. We are profoundly impacted in our thinking, views and actions, at numerous intentional and subliminal levels.
This workshop seeks to broaden our understanding of this deeply damaging and traumatic area through:
- Growing a deeper understanding of how God can bring healing to victims of sexual abuse
- Carrying a greater awareness of the extent of this damage in our 21st century society
- Knowing how to press into greater healing if you have been a victim of sexual abuse
- Being able to pray and support others in a more informed way
This workshop is for you if you:
- Have experienced sexual abuse directly and would like tools to help identify the layers of damage and how to let God meet you in your pain.
- Know someone who has experienced abuse and want tools to help you feel better able to offer them support.
- Are in a position of responsibility and want to be equipped to carry hope for those who feel lost in their damage.
- Want to know how to respond to the consistent assault of sexuality in the world around us

Other Upcoming Events
Rapha Missional Community (Community Evening)
Rapha is the Hebrew word for healing and wholeness. In our community we enjoy authentic relationships where its safe to be honest about where you are at. We share journeying together to pursue who God created us to be. We seek to reach out and welcome those who have need, whether historic or current. We share a meal, worship, testimonies of God breaking through and have a devotional. We are kid-friendly, and welcome those who aren’t in a current relationship with the Lord. Some of our community also meet in groups during the week to journey together.
We meet primarily at 4566 Cascade Street in Bozeman one Friday per month at 6pm. We keep people updated on the exact date and location each month by email. If you are interested in getting on our email list, please contact Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-577-1740.
Our next gathering is Friday, October 27th.
Join us the first Thursday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm at The Commons where the Rapha Women’s Leadership Team will be creating space for us to meet each other and meet with God. The focus of our evening varies. You can expect a mixture that might include: testimonies, worship, fellowship, table discussions, Q&A panels, reflective time with God, etc. We focus on encouraging authentic relationships, talking honestly together, and sharing tools for journeying into greater wholeness and deeper relationship with God.
If you have not been to a Rapha event this is the perfect place for you to come and meet those who are part of this ministry. All women are welcome!
Our next Women’s Evening is Thursday, November 2nd.
