Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know if a Mending the Soul group is right for me?

Before you begin a Mending the Soul small support group, your facilitator will ask you to fill out an intake form and meet for an interview. Your facilitator can answer all your questions and help you know if you are ready to join a group.

How long does each meeting last?

A typical group meeting lasts two hours. The group commits to start and finish on time each week. Participants are also responsible for completing their homework (one workbook chapter per week) prior to coming to group. This takes an average of two hours per week to complete.

Where do Mending the Soul small groups meet?

Mending the Soul small groups are held in any safe, private space free from interruptions and distractions: home, church, or community center.

Can adult groups be co-ed?

Due to the nature of the small group, our recommendation is that men and women meet separately. We also recommend that facilitators are the same gender as participants.
