a quiet space to listen and experience hope, healing and wholeness with God

Stories

We are Living Letters

Stories shape us. Story evokes story. Often, we begin to pay attention to our own story and God's within it, through hearing the story of another.

Thank you to those in our community who have generously offered to share their story.

Restoration Ministries is on the Move with God. Meet us at our new address at 11985 Technology Drive, Suite 230 Eden Prairie, MN 55344

God Has Brought Us to a New Place

God leads me beside quiet waters...
                                             God restores my soul…Psalm 23

Meet us at our new ministry address:
11985 Technology Drive
Suite 230
Eden Prairie, MN 55344

Thank you for joining us in God's work of restoration. Recently we learned that the space we have called home as a ministry has sold. Our time to move has come. We have been anticipating this move for over 2 years, and while the news of leaving our first home on Stone Creek Drive in Chanhassen evoked sadness, it did not come as a surprise. This change invited us to fully embrace the new thing which God is doing in and among us. The original seeds of Restoration Ministries will always be with us. We carry them within. They have shaped who we have become and are becoming. Upon hearing the news, our board met to pray and listen for God’s instructions. We clearly heard the invitation to continue and be willing to embrace the leaving of one place into another. The words I kept hearing were “further up and further in.” Then I had a dream of us moving the ark with great joy. We are bringing God’s presence with us into a new place. We are being sent out. We will continue to listen and pray with others, helping them discern God’s voice and affirming their desire to align their lives with God’s initiative and action.

I reached out to colleagues, partners and supporters of Restoration Ministries. Their quick and generous responses encouraged me and deepened my trust in God’s ways of mobilizing the Body of Christ to accomplish God’s purposes for His kingdom here on earth. We had many kind offers and suggestions for sharing space. One place stood out in particular. Nestled on the edge of the 494 crossroads and sheltered beside the quiet waters of Idlewild Lake in Eden Prairie, we found a welcoming and easily accessible place to have private and holy conversations of the soul. We anticipate having two offices in which we can gather, listen, pray and offer the restorative ministry of spiritual direction. We will have the use of larger meeting space and the adjoining garden patio overlooking the lake for our Listening Prayer groups and retreats. The space is a single level building, shared with other professionals. We hope to be a blessing to all who come into our space and also to those who make their offices there too. Truly, God is at work. And we desire to work with God.

We moved on Friday, July 15th. You are invited to schedule a time to come and see our new holy space. I welcome the opportunity to pray together, bless our new space and continue listening for the new thing which God is doing among us.
We welcome your partnership in God’s work of renewal and restoration of faith, hope, love and peace. Always, it begins in our own heart.

Tony

"During the middle of a transformational time in my life, I became engaged in the 12-Step Spiritual Journey program. I was drawn by one of the objectives of the program - emotional healing. The material and sense of community facilitated an environment for personal growth and healing like nothing I had experienced before. I discovered the healing reality of God's love as I discovered truth - truth about God and about myself. Christ has become my recovery, and relationships have become a source of life."

- Tony

Scott

"Thinking about spending all day at a spiritual retreat center with my colleagues left me a bit leery. However, by the time I left, I was completely disarmed and thanking God for His provision in both my life and my colleagues' lives. The Restoration Retreat Center is warm and inviting, and the staff is God-centered."

- Scott, PhD

Mona

"Developing intimacy with God is something I have always desired. I found the Spiritual Exercises helped me focus. The gentle but persistent process showed me how to keep my heart where it needed to be - continually looking to Jesus."

- Mona

Kimberly

"I've walked though a healing process from deep sorrow to pure joy, all the while being embraced by a safe and transparent community. When we come into God's presence and listen intently for His voice, we leave the busyness of life and heal."

- Kimberly

Joel

"The tone and skill that Jean brings to leading our supervision gatherings for spiritual directors is really remarkable. The sessions nourish my own heart and are broadening and deepening my way of being with others in soul conversations. This is an example of why Restoration Ministries is a treasure for soul care in the Twin Cities."

- Joel

Debbi

"Finding any peace of mind during the Christmas rush was impossible. I was worn to a frazzle and needed to stop. In attending the retreat day, I found peace of 'heart' and the ability to move more thoughtfully into and through the Advent season."

- Debbi

Vicki

"As a ministering person it is imperative that I step aside to notice and reflect on how I am with God, what I am experiencing in ministry, and where God is at work. Jean, and these ministry colleagues, facilitate and provide me the space to do this in the midst of the demands of work. I am more grounded in myself and God as a result."

- Vicki

Scott B

"Restoration Ministries is just as it sounds - it has helped restore my confidence and ability to love. Through spiritual direction, praise, and meditation on Scripture, an environment rich with the Holy Spirit has helped to open up in me a door of freedom - freedom from dependence on receiving approval, and even answers, from others."

- Scott

Laurin

"The manuscript study has been like a breath of fresh air for me in studying Scripture. This is the first study of Scripture that I have been involved in where progress has been set by insight and understanding and not a timetable. All of the stories of Genesis and Exodus, that before were simply passed over or gone over quickly, have now taken on new meaning based on new understanding of how God wants a personal relationship with me."

- Laurin

Jon

"Listening Prayer has become a sacred and safe place that provides the opportunity for me to hear the spoken Word of God in a new way through silence, prayer, and worship. In this space, through the Holy Spirit and the stories of others sharing in this experience, I am learning to quiet my mind and to listen carefully with my heart for the voice of Jesus Christ."

- Jon

John

"Participating in a Restoration Ministry leadership retreat calmed my soul and opened my eyes to the work of God. I felt refreshed and challenged, and I had a renewed sense of awe for the work of God. This is definitely something to prioritize on the calendar and make the time for."

- John, Pastor

Greg

"Tuesday, the night we meet for the manuscript study, is one of my most treasured days of the week. In this study we are learning how to read the Hebrew narrative that has survived from generation to generation as a story. I believe I am better able to understand what the writer is trying to convey through the recurring themes woven throughout God's story. We pray together, we have lively discussions, and the nudging of the Holy Spirit guides our pace."

- Greg
