Elijah House

Elijah House specializes in prayer ministry, helping individuals address root causes that lie beneath the surface of most problems. “Bitter roots” (Heb. 12:15) feed patterns in us that lead to broken relationships, habitual sin, and many other kinds of “bad fruit.” Once roots are discovered, the prayer minister leads the person in prayer at the foot of the Cross, to forgive those who wounded him/her, as well as to receive forgiveness for judgments and other strongholds his heart has formed. While Elijah House is available to address all types of sin struggles, they are especially effective in helping those who deal with unwanted same-sex attractions. The Lord used Elijah House as a significant part of Linda’s healing journey.

Upper Room Community Residential Program

The Upper Room Community (URC) is a 9-month residential program (September through May) for individuals who have already gone through at least one year of processing their same-sex attraction, either with a support group or through other means. It is for those who want to pursue a deeper understanding of SSA and live out the next step of healing with other people. The program is geared toward unmarried men and women between the ages of 21 and 30. Each year there are between four and six participants who live together in our large turn-of-the-century home in Southeast Portland. Each participant goes through the URC Taking Back Ground program while also meeting together one afternoon a week to have more in-depth teaching and discussion. In addition, each participant also has a mentor they meet with weekly. Other than those commitments, the participants live their own lives in Portland, including investing in different local churches, having their own jobs or perhaps attending school. Past residents have come from all over the United States and even other countries.
