Rising Above Ministries

Yesterday our Sunday services were led in worship by the Rising Above Band. This was my first time learning about Rising Above and was really touched by the story of this ministry.

Rising Above is a conference ministry organized by and for First Nations people. Their conferences help give lay people and churches get necessary tools to overcome such issues as sexual abuse, substance abuse, family violence, suicide and the residential school experience.

I really thought this is a wonderful ministry. We hear a lot of the hurting and pains of First Nation people and it was great to learn more about how First Nations Christians are reaching out to their communities and people.

You can get more information on Rising Above and sample some of the music of the band on their website.
