Stand in the Gap Ministries is focused on bringing about real life change or transformation and is focused on addressing root cause issues, not surface level symptoms or temporary, short-term fixes.
In order to qualify perspective clients (neighbors), SITGM worked with Baylor University to develop an assessment tool to help identify people who are ready for a hand up, and not a hand out. The tool is used to assess the readiness of each perspective client or “neighbor” and is an important part in the formation of each family.
3 Key Questions for an SITGM Neighbor:
- Is God active in your life? (recommended reading: Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby)
- Are you embracing God’s overtures towards you?
- Are you truly ready to be healed – to take responsibility for your life, acknowledge need, ask for and receive help? (Our friends in Alcoholics Anonymous put it this way: I can’t, He can, and I’m going to let Him.)
