Please welcome David Barbeirs and Rayed Redemption
Redemption, loosely translated means delivered from the afflictions that have enveloped us, when it comes to the subject of domestic violence, those afflicted should know that help is available, they are not alone.
Redemption – The Greek word apolytrosis means the safety margin that results when a person is rescued from what previously enslaved them. Redemption is derived from apolytrosis as we can confirm in Ephesians 1:7 “ἐν ᾧ ἔχομεν τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν διὰ τοῦ αἵματος αὐτοῦ, τὴν ἄφεσιν τῶν παραπτωμάτων, κατὰ τὸ πλοῦτος τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ (SBL GNT), “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (NKJV)
Rayed Redemption, a Texas non-profit organization and Federal 501(c)3 registered agency has incorporated the domestic violence ministry to promote the well-being of those afflicted by the presence of domestic violence and sexual assault in their lives and the prevention of both in our society.
All of Rayed Redemption's services are developed and adapted from Biblical principles and teachings.
The organization will hold a kickoff program to introduce its presence in the very near future.
At this kickoff program we will welcome visitors, pass out informational brochures and feature speakers that will inform the public about our programs. Visitors will be treated to a performance by a major Christian artist.
Rayed Redemption's main focus is to provide relationship workshops and offer supportive education and resources for those who find themselves in unhealthy situations.
Overall, the general community does not have enough information about Biblically centered domestic violence and assault counseling and outreach, and when it comes to recognition and prevention, the information gap is widened.
Rayed Redemption’s goal is to fill that gap. “Rayed Redemption's mission is guided by the Bible, following established programs from Overcomer’s and Celebrate Recovery.
While we at Rayed Redemption are devoted to working primarily with those afflicted, we understand the need for recognition, prevention and healing, and will not turn away anyone, for domestic violence knows no barriers, afflicted are men, women, rich, poor, educated or not, and of course domestic violence has no color line. Assistance will be available to all cultures.
Rayed Redemption has no home base as of yet, but we faithfully pray and know that we will have a permanent space sometime in the fall at a location either in Plano, or Frisco, Texas with locations coming in 2015 in Los Angeles and Miami, as donations allow us.
Until that time we will travel to civic organizations, faith-based organizations, and businesses to offer workshops that can be tailored to meet the needs of specific groups.
We need to openly discuss domestic violence. Domestic violence is not a private issue, we do not have to keep it quiet, we need to make people aware and let them know that it is OK to speak up.
We will help those afflicted and affected by domestic violence see that there are alternatives, and we will provide them with the resources to resolve their situation, safely.
As for spreading our message, we will not compete with any other groups, organizations, or social agencies, we all share the same goal of delivering information to all segments of the population. We strive to partner with other social agencies to better serve the community.
