“Metanoia” is about change, re-birth and transformation. In some verses of the Bible it is the English word “repent”. This Greek word is from metanoein ‘change one’s mind.’ The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as “a transformative change of heart; especially a spiritual conversion”.
Thus, the mission and strategy of the Metanoia Center:
The mission of the Metanoia Center is to transform individuals, households, neighborhoods, and communities by sharing the life-giving message of Jesus Christ while providing training and education opportunities to individuals.
We do so by using a strategy called “CHE”. CHE, Community Health Evangelism, is a proven ministry strategy that seamlessly integrates evangelism, discipleship, and church planting with community health and development. CHE is a wholistic approach, addressing social, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of individuals. Through CHE ministries, people become followers of Jesus, and whole communities are lifted out of cycles of poverty and disease.
2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
