We’re glad you have chosen to learn about the history of Healing Grace Ministries. God has blessed us with the opportunity to serve those who are struggling in life and desperate to experience freedom.

The vision for Healing Grace Ministries was birthed in early 2007 by George and Patti Robinson. They had been in local church ministry for several years and served as senior leadership for Celebrate Recovery. 

With their passion, gifts of discernment and compassion—along with their unique ability to connect with and love on hurting people—the Robinson’s followed God’s call to launch a ministry that sought to bring true healing to the lives of struggling individuals in their community.

They set out to research the needs of the community and found what appeared to be a significant gap in the ability of the local church to provide the ongoing support needed by those who were suffering. The vision God had given them was confirmed and they immediately took action in order to see it become a reality.

Over the past decade, we have witnessed God make incredible changes in the lives of the many individuals served by HGM. Existing marriages have been restored to healthy places. Couples preparing for marriage have gained invaluable knowledge in how to do life together by God’s design. Individuals have experienced healing from past difficulties and found peace in their current circumstances. Others have celebrated freedom from life-controlling habits and addictions. In addition, teenagers learned to understand their true identity, enabling them to interact positively with their families, peers and teachers.

In 2016, after 10 years of serving hurting people, the Robinsons’ passed the torch of leadership and retired to Florida. God has blessed the ministry with incredible new leaders and a dedicated staff to serve the needs of our community. As we step into this next season of ministry, we are amazed at His continual provision and love.
