What Is lifeEnrichment?
lifeEnrichment is a program of Mt. Zion that provides instruction on how to improve your life so that you can experience the best life has to offer. All of the classes focus on changing mindsets and behaviors that can stand in the way of leading productive and peaceful lives. We believe that no matter how good your life is, it can be better!
The mission of the program is to equip people to overcome adversity and temptation, allowing them to mature in Christ. lifeEnrichment teaches that through the redemptive power of God we can be delivered from bondage and recover all that God intended for us. lifeEnrichment provides a place of refuge for hurting people and offers hope for any situation through anointed words of encouragement. We teach the importance of being strong in the Lord and the power of His might, to stand against anything (Eph. 6:10,11). lifeEnrichment was birthed out of Isaiah 61 and the promises concerning God’s work in our lives and in our circumstances. It speaks of being called to:
HEAL THE BROKEN HEARTED / LIBERATE THOSE IN CAPTIVITY AND SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE BOUND / COMFORT / REBUILD, REPAIR, RAISE UP / TAKE AWAY SHAME AND GIVE HONOR / TAKE AWAY CONFUSION AND GIVE JOY
Each session provides a small group setting where, through the oversight of a trained leader, individuals can share with others who have similar needs. Although lifeEnrichment has been designed to fulfill the total needs of an individual, there must be a joint effort to ensure a complete restoration. For example, a man who has been abusing a substance must first deal with his addiction, then if his health, finances, or family have been affected, he needs support in these areas too. He must find out why he turned to a substance in the first place, understand his role as a responsible man of God, take charge of his life and bring stability to his family. Restoration is a process and it takes time, encouragement, and opportunity. We provide the opportunity you need, would you be willing to take the time?
A FAMILY SUPPORT SYSTEM
A person in a crisis is not the only one affected—Those in their direct line of influence are also affected. lifeEnrichment considers every member of the family and provides encouragement and direction; seeking above all, to obtain love and harmony in the home.
A PLACE OF POSITIVE PEER SUPPORT
The support groups are a source of positive influence and a training process for all participants. lifeEnrichment encourages individuals to look beyond their own personal need, recognizing and respecting the needs of others.
A MODEL FOR AN OVERCOMING LIFESTYLE
The leaders and teachers involved in lifeEnrichment small groups model this overcomer lifestyle: one that is emotionally balanced and demonstrates sobriety, discipline, stability, and morality.
A PLACE OF TRUST
lifeEnrichment strives to establish trust within every individual. It is a place where a man’s word is kept, both in respect to confidentiality and promise. lifeEnrichment promotes trust in God who never fails, whose Word is true.
A SUPPORT TO THE LOCAL CHURCH
lifeEnrichment is one element of an overall program designed to help integrate and establish individuals into the local church body.
A PLACE OF CRISIS INTERVENTION
lifeEnrichment seeks to meet the immediate needs of those who are experiencing a crisis, help stabilize them, and show them how to avoid crisis in the future. Guidance, support, assistance, encouragement, and hope are always offered.
A CHANCE TO ENRICH YOUR LIFE
God’s desire is to bless His people and give the abundant life. Our lives are enriched when we follow principles of stewardship over every area of our life, both naturally and spiritually.
