WHAT CHURCH LEADERS SAY ABOUT AVENUE

"No one I know has a better grasp of a man's recovery needs and process than Avenue, and there is no ministry more needed among men of all churches today than Avenue.  As I travel and speak to men at churches, I ask them to respond if they have a need for sexual purity. 60-90% of the room will stand. Give Avenue a chance with the men you influence."
Ron Pinkston-Pastor/District Supervisor
FourSquare International, Danville CA

 

"Avenue was welcomed on our campus when we conducted a Special Study on Sexual Addiction. Nothing is breaking people apart more devastatingly than sexual issues in our society today. We must be equipped to deal with the brokenness that comes to people caught up in sexual addiction. Avenue is effective in doing just that."
Dr. Jack Hayford-Chancellor
Kings College & Seminary, Van Nuys CA

"I am so thankful that God led me and Tom to your groups in San Diego when we lived there and that we could bring your program to Maryland.  I can not believe we have been leading groups here for ten years now! We wouldn’t be married today except for God working through Avenue. It doesn’t matter what your credentials are if you don’t have the tools. Many therapists attend our groups for their own needs." 

Marlene and Tom - Group Leaders    Mountain Christian Church
Joppa, Maryland

"I've worked with countless men suffering with anger and addiction to pornography. It is a great relief to now refer many of these men to Avenue, where they will have their very best chance of healing and lasting change in a Christ-centered format. Avenue is a wonderful resource for any Pastor or Counselor."

Dennis McFadden - Marriage and Family Therapist

"Jesus loves to heal, bring restoration and make old dead things Beautifully New! I have seen GOD do this many times here in Women's Avenue! Jesus has breathed into the Avenue for Women material and used it as a Mighty tool to save my life! Celebrating 10 Years in Avenue and this material is new with every cycle! I am so thankful to Jesus and the loving kind wisdom of Susan Allen! 

Tammy Panos - Group Leader
The Father's House
Vacaville CA

"There is nothing that comes close to the positive feedback I get from my clients about their development with Avenue. I endorse the Avenue healing programs wholeheartedly. In over 20 years as a therapist I have found a need to refer clients to specialized group work to make progress in their life and gain ground. The Avenue programs do this very thing in a Christ-centered environment without adding the guilt and shame many already struggle with. I appreciate that your materials are biblically centered and psychologically savvy.  They are relevant, straightforward, uncompromising-offering hope to those who have felt awash and without hope."

Reverend Jeffrey Klippenes M.A. MFT Executive Director        Sequoyah Counseling Center Castro Valley, CA
