The Metanoia Center was established as a 501c3 faith-based non-profit organization in August of 2018. The mission of the Metanoia Center is to help transform people and place through wholistic solutions that focus on betterment and development by offering a variety of literacy and community outreach opportunities. We are focused on betterment and development, versus relief. As such, core to our ministry is a variety of Biblically-centered literacy courses that address the needs of the individual and local and surrounding communities. The Metanoia Center executes it's mission without regard to race, gender, color, ethnicity, disability, religion, national origin, education, or income.
Metanoia means afterthought, from meta meaning "after" or "beyond" and nous meaning "mind". In Classical Greek metanoia meant changing one's mind about someone or something. Biblically, metanoia is used to refer to the change of mind/heart which is brought about in repentance. Another word used in conjunction with the definition of metanoia is transformation. Thus metanoia is the changing, transformation, of ones mind, or heart, that results in a change, or transformation, of lifestyle. You might say that a transformation of lifestyle is evidence of a transformed mind and heart. It is our conviction that true, lasting metanoia occurs through Biblical re-birth that results in the restoration of relationship with God, the Creator, that then leads to restoration of relationship with others, creation and self - wholistic.
