We believe in the power of Scripture, we believe in the power of questions (as did Socrates), and we believe in the power of God giving real-time insight to participants when we explore scripture in an interactive, communal way. We love leading groups into an understanding of key Hebrew and/or Greek words in Biblical passages and into discoveries of how the stories of old speak into our lives today.
We utilize the Four Streams, Listening Prayer, Healing Prayer, and Integration Work. Our specialties include addressing struggles with sexuality, struggles with fear (anxiety, OCD, etc.), premarital relationship development, and marital health. Our services are available in person, via video, or via phone. We are licensed pastors; Mandy is Prepare/Enrich (relational-assessment) certified.
We train teachers/instructors how to incorporate the Socratic Method into their educational styles so they can utilize and access the benefits of engaging questioning and listening.
Mandy & Scott are a “dynamic duo” and have a real heart for people. With their skill in relational dynamics (whether dealing with the good, the bad, or the ugly), they do an excellent job assisting and encouraging those willing to walk out their journey. Their dedication and knowledge are admirable. Their extensive participation in Hebraic studies has enriched their view of the scriptures and they bring it in a grace-filled manner.Dave & Jan
I have known Scott and Mandy for 9 years now and have had the privilege of receiving their mentoring and teaching in different arenas of life. The depth of their teaching and wisdom and heart is incredible. Their presence draws an open heart out of you. To be able to engage in a deep and true friendship/relationship without shame and judgement is extremely difficult to find, but it is available with Scott and Mandy!Justin Persinger
Maturity. Depth. Insight. Heart. These are teachers of the soul. They bridge the ancient path (Jeremiah) and our Fathers of our Faith with modern day living and pursuing the Abundant Life. I strongly recommend time with these great Bible teachers. I’m honored to receive from them! It is rare to find a teacher that can unearth treasures hidden in ancient texts and languages and bring it into the light and show how it shapes us today. Mandy and Scott understand the heart and God’s heart.Morgan Snyder
I’m very blessed and fortunate to be able to have Scott & Mandy’s guidance and counseling. During my one-on-one time with Scott, his guidance and counsel have always pointed me back to the right direction – towards God. “And you shall know them by their fruit…” Aside from offering great counsel, Scott is also *extremely* knowledgeable in Hebrew, and in his walk with God able to offer a lot of experienced advice. I highly recommended Empowering Ranch: Scott and Mandy. Thanks.Matthew S
