Find Journey Groups

Find Journey Groups

Find a local Journey Group in your area. Each manual (The Journey Begins and The Journey Continues) guides participants through a 9 or 12-week experience, called a Journey Group.

Life is a path marked by hurt, hope, and struggles.  At Open Hearts, we train you to engage people along that journey in deeper and healthier ways. Local Journey groups are led by those who have attended a Journey seminar.

Local Journey Groups
Mike and Lois Nelson – Nebraska

Through a safe and confidential group process, our curriculum leads you through your own stories of pain, disappointment, and abuse, equipping you to share the care you receive with others. We teach you to share and listen honestly. We show you how to practice good self-care. We seek to love like Jesus, with empathy and forgiveness.

We help you create authentic community where people are heard, loved and healed together.

Go Here to List Your Journey Group

Churches (or other groups) that are holding Journey Groups are encouraged to fill out a form detailing where and when their groups are meeting. Those entries appear here. This is a new process for sharing and finding groups, but we hope to have many, many groups posted here in the future.

Group Information

Grace for the Wounded Journey Groups meet on Thursday nights, 7-9 pm (with 2 Saturday half day classes) at the Woodmont Hills church (3710 Franklin Rd, Nashville, 37204).
We strive for authentic community where no one is judged. We lead participants on a journey towards freedom by looking at their stories and examining their beliefs about what happened, and the behaviors that were adopted to survive. Going further into story we search for lies they may have due to faulty interpretations of their childhood and where this still lives in their current behaviors. We believe that grace for our own selves is important in learning to love others better. JOIN US on this journey as we search for redemption in our own stories of pain, disappointment, and abuse.

Group Information

Has the #MeToo movement stirred up past memories?

We are here for you.

The trauma of childhood sexual abuse, or a sexual assault in later years, is a profound experience that can impact a women’s life for decades. You don’t need to struggle with the shame, anger, confusion, or painful memories alone. With compassion and understanding, leaders who have traveled the same journey will encourage and support participants on their path towards healing. Participants will be led out of isolation, renew hope, and experience healing.
