"Develop a Lay-Led Ministry"
A RYH Ministry uses trained lay people in your church to lead RYH groups. RYH has a training process for people who wish to become RYH group leaders.
"Take the Burden Off the Pastor"
The Pastor is often called to handle emotional or relational issues that occur within the church body. This can become an emotionally draining burden for a pastor. A RYH ministry will train lay leaders who can ease the pastor's load by helping people in these areas.
"Promote an Emotionally Healthy Church"
A great benefit of having a RYH ministry in your church is that the church itself becomes a safer place for people to relate to each other and to interact in healthier ways.
"Foster Emotionally Healthy Families"
As people within a church participate in a RYH ministry they learn through the group experience and the workbook materials how healthy families interact. This gives them skills and knowledge they can use within their own families.
"Stimulate Flourishing Relationships"
Another benefit that people realize from their participation in a RYH group is that relationships with their spouse and other people become healthier as the participant observes and experiences healthy group interaction.
