Rapha Ministry

RAPHA (Hebrew): to repair, restore, make whole.

Rapha is not just about healing… this journey is about becoming whole. God promises that He can bring lasting wholeness in every area of our lives, transforming us from our inner spirit outward. It is up to each of us to decide if we will partner with Him to become more of the true person we are created to be.

If you have any questions or would like more information about Rapha, please contact us at rapha@journeyweb.net. Our Frequently Asked Questions are also helpful.

INTRODUCTION TO RAPHA

OTHER UPCOMING EVENTS

Rapha Missional Community (Community Evening)

Rapha is the Hebrew word for healing and wholeness. In our community we enjoy authentic relationships where its safe to be honest about where you are at. We share journeying together to pursue who God created us to be. We seek to reach out and welcome those who have need, whether historic or current. We share a meal, worship, testimonies of God breaking through and have a devotional.  We are kid-friendly, and welcome those who aren’t in a current relationship with the Lord.  Some of our community also meet in groups during the week to journey together.

We meet primarily at 4566 Cascade Street in Bozeman one Friday per month at 6pm.  We keep people updated on the exact date and location each month by email. If you are interested in getting on our email list, please contact Jenn at jenn.walker@journeyweb.net or 406-577-1740.

Our next gatherings are:
Friday, June 22nd at Connie Summers’ home [4566 Cascade Ave in Bozeman]

The Many Faces of Anger (Women’s Workshop)

When: Saturday, July 14th from 9am-12:30pm
Where: The Commons at Baxter & Love
Cost: Free! (A freewill offering will be taken during the workshop.)
Registration: Register online here, email rapha@journeyweb.net or call 406-922-0190.

Anger is a tricky feeling. It can rumble in the background, erupt without warning, or get buried so deep we can’t find it. It shape-shifts – changing its focus, disappearing, deceiving. It can turn against us, against those we love, or against those we don’t love! Sometimes anger feels good and a righteous cry for justice. Sometimes it haunts and torments us.

In this women’s workshop, Pastor Susan Williams will help us to understand more about anger – our own and other people’s. We will explore how it grows and how we store it, how it’s expressed in our body, and the impact it has on relationship with ourselves, others, and God. We will include practical tools for managing daily anger, letting go of stubborn anger, and responding to others’ anger. God intends that anger should make a helpful contribution to our emotional life – this workshop will help make that more of a reality.

 

Women’s Evening

Join us the first Thursday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm at The Commons where the Rapha Women’s Leadership Team will be creating space for us to meet each other and meet with God. The focus of our evening varies. You can expect a mixture that might include: testimonies, worship, fellowship, table discussions, Q&A panels, reflective time with God, etc.  We focus on encouraging authentic relationships, talking honestly together, and sharing tools for journeying into greater wholeness and deeper relationship with God.

If you have not been to a Rapha event this is the perfect place for you to come and meet those who are part of this ministry. All women are welcome!

Our next Women’s Evening is Thursday, July 5th.

Men’s Weekend Away

When: Friday, July 27 – Sunday, July 29
Where: Luccock Park in the Paradise Valley
Cost: $150.00
Registration: Register online here, email rapha@journeyweb.net or call 406-922-0190.
Brochure:  Download the brochure for more information.

During the weekend, we are going to dig into the concept of “Authentic Manhood”. Many men in our society have been fed a lie when it comes to manhood and this has left them with a distorted view of what it means to be a man. This weekend, we will explore the emotional, psychological and spiritual aspects of authentic manhood.

“As a little boy, I instinctively looked up to my dad, knowing that one day I would become like him. Over time, my relationship broke down leaving a little boy’s longing neglected and unmet. This left my heart vulnerable to whomever would speak into my life. Most of the time, this input was unhelpful and damaging. As a man, this left me vulnerable to continue the hurtful cycles with those closest to me. In the men’s community, I have been actively working to heal these wounds, aiding my growth into honorable manhood.”
– A man on a Rapha Journey

This weekend is for you if:

  • You think or believe there has to be something better!
  • You are tired of the stereotypical messages about manhood from our society and culture
  • You are wanting to explore God’s perspective on manhood
  • You want to create and nurture honorable relationships with women
  • You want to better understand the parallels and differences between men and women

The workshop will include free time to walk, hike, fish or just stop. The location affords the opportunity to enjoy the scenery or create space to unpack everything that God is currently sharing with you.
