Heart to Heart Ministries

Cultivating Hope from one heart to anotheR through the outstretched arms of christ

Our Mission

Cultivating Hope from one heart to another
through the outstretched arms of Christ.

 

It is our belief that Christian community and fellowship are an essential part of growth in our walk with Christ.  In this walk, we each experience seasons that can be especially challenging and may require one on one Christian counseling/ministry. 

Too often this kind of help is neglected due to  the financial burden it can present. However, we believe one’s financial situation should not be a stumbling block to them seeking help in their time of need.

Heart to Heart Ministries exists to close the financial gap between qualified Christian professional providers and those needing their services.

Outreach

Founded in 2017, Heart to Heart Ministries began its ministry in Seward, Nebraska.  Since then, its counseling ministry has stretched across the state of Nebraska and, through the use of technology, has expanded into other states and a few countries across the globe.
