Rapha Journey

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 rapha@journeyweb.net.  In addition, we also have a list of Frequently Asked Questions that we hope will be a helpful resource for you.

Men’s Weekend Away

When: July 28-30, 2017
Where: Luccock Camp Park, Livingston MT
Cost: $139 (scholarships are available)
Registration: Register here online, email rapha@journeyweb.net or call 406-922-0190

We are going to dig into the concepts of “Developing a Lifestyle of Doing a Journey Together as Men”. Men in our society are alienated by western traditions of being an island, a rock or a macho man — when really no man was meant to be alone! He was made for community and connectivity to be successful.

“I joined the military and joined a brotherhood. In all my training, “brotherhood” was drilled into me. My purpose was to complete the mission together with my brothers in arms. I was confident going to the battle field knowing that — even if I didn’t agree or like the man I served with — when we got into trouble, he had my back.

When I left the military, I lost that support system and my life seemed to do a tale spin out of control. I felt alone in my life and its struggles. All my relationships started to disintegrate. No one had my back anymore and I felt lost, confused and had no hope. I felt like a worthless shell of a man with nothing of value in my life. I was filled with so much toxic emotion that everything inside of me was shutting down.

On my journey over the last year I have found a group of men that have accepted me for who I am and they have become my brothers. They have walked with me threw the dark times of my journey and have taught me how to gain healing. Now they have my back!

— Jim Panten, US Army Veteran and Rapha Mens Leadership Team Member
(hear more of Jim’s story and others at the Weekend Away and on our website)

We in Rapha are taking back manhood and what has been lost. We are building a brotherhood of men that are digging into the deep stuff, and most importantly doing it together each step of the way. Whatever you’re facing in life you don’t have to do it alone!!!

Dr Peter Holmes and the Men’s Rapha Team will be leading this event and available throughout to provide diagnostics and support for any who want to address particular issues.

There will also be free time to walk, hike, fish, shoot or just stop. The location affords the opportunity to enjoy the scenery or create space to unpack all that God is currently sharing with you.

Healthy Ways of Handling Conflict: A Women’s Workshop

When: Thursday, August 3rd from 6:30-9:30pm
Where: The Commons
Cost: Free! (a freewill offering will be taken)
Registration: Register here online, email rapha@journeyweb.net or call 406-922-0190

Conflict is part of the cut and thrust of daily life. Whether we are the person precipitating the conflict or whether we are simply caught up in someone else’s battle, conflict is all around us. Sometimes it even feels like the conflict is going on in us!  It leaves many of us feeling uncomfortable and perhaps even quite powerless. Are you someone who tries to avoid conflict at all costs or do you have a variety of ways to manage those tricky relational moments?

There are a range of reasons that explain why women find conflict difficult. In this Rapha evening workshop Susan Williams, our Pastor of Healing and Wholeness, will help us understand our own and others’ responses to conflict. We will identify strategies and resources that we can use to help diffuse conflict and let loose more of God’s Love and Wisdom into challenging situations.

By the end of the evening you will be able to:

  • Map the challenges that conflict creates
  • Have some strategies to respond conflict
  • Be familiar with several de-escalation techniques
  • Know how to find healing from historic conflict

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 jenn.walker@journeyweb.net or 406-577-1740.

Our next gathering is Friday, July 21st.  **Location for this evening will be announced soon.**

 

Women’s Evening

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, July 6th.
