Training Christian Women

Our Mission: Empowering women with Christ-centered training to facilitate restoration.

Our Training Program

Equipping Anabaptist women ministering to women at risk with multi-faceted, gospel centered training.

Our Curriculum

Restore training is a six-month program which includes general missions in NYC for 6 weeks, an online certificate in trauma and crisis care, and other out-sourced training programs. Trainees are paired with a personal coach and receive in-depth mentoring and accountability.

Application Process

Are you ready to start? This will guide you through the application process. You may submit your application without any set obligations. We will follow up with a consultation and opportunity for questions.

Opportunities for Trainees

There is a large gap between raising awareness and engaging in proactive solutions. The long term solutions require discipleship both for our trainees and women at risk.

We believe our Anabaptist women can engage in the cause of freedom and exercise the gifts and experiences they have had to further the kingdom of God in the lives of women at risk globally.


Our Story

Seeing the need

In 2015, we faced the realities of the refugee crisis in Greece, and the startling number of women traveling alone and vulnerable to trafficking and abuse. This birthed the dream to see our women equipped with gospel-centered training to enter into the hard places. All of us on the Restore team developed a passion for ministry to women at risk through our own stories and the ministry God called us to.

Forming a foundation

In 2017, it was proposed to the Destinations International Board that they oversee a subcommittee of women focused on proactive solutions to the problem of trafficking and sexual trauma. This developed into a committee of women who compiled outsourced materials from experienced professionals to provide a multi-faceted, holistic approach to caring for the abused.

Training is launched

In 2020, our training was launched! We envision an alumni of trained women who will network with existing anti-trafficking initiatives, and commit long term to the fight for freedom and restoration.
