WHAT NEWHEART EXPRESSIONS IS ABOUT
NewHeart Expressions (NHE) is a ministry reaching out to the sexually broken. NHE’s founder, Ron Browning launched this ministry to care for those struggling with sex addictions and crimes. With a personal history of sexual brokenness, Ron’s God-given passion has fueled his desire to lead other broken men into the same freedom of grace and truth that he himself received from God. Pastor Ron knows firsthand the devastation and destruction that sexual brokenness has on an individual as well as his family and community. Walking through NHE’s Find True Identity Discipleship, men have experienced freedom from unwanted sexual desires and struggles.
WHY AN NHE COUNSEL?
In 2002, Pastor Ron established NewHeart Expressions (NHE). Shortly after that 2002 incorporation, the NHE Counsel was formed to advise and rule over ministry activities. However, Ron’s life-changing accident resulting in a traumatic brain injury in 2005 put a hold on NHE’s activities. The NHE Counsel dissolved within a year and funding dwindled over the next few years.
Since then, God has gradually returned NHE and Ron to ministry. Although this has been a slow process, the initial passion to walk alongside the sexually broken has not changed. Pastor Ron continues to disciple men by coming alongside them as they journey through NHE’s Find True Identity Discipleship. Over the years of returning to ministry, Ron has sought counsel from wise men and women within his ministry community for advice and accountability. The time has now come to formalize a new NHE Counsel to advise Ron and oversee NHE’s ministry.
THE NEW NHE COUNSEL
God has graciously provided three individuals willing to serve on the NHE Counsel. The search continues because NHE desires the counseling board to have at least five members… Lord willing. The NHE Counsel currently consists of Hope Browning (Ron’s wife), John Woodward (Ron’s mentor from Grace Fellowship International), and Dan Luevano (one of the pastors at Ron and Hope’s church). These godly and wise individuals have earned the right to speak into Ron’s life with trusted real-life accountability. He looks forward to listening and growing as the NHE Counsel advises him in all NHE decisions.
We’re grateful for God’s provision in our rebuilding endeavors thus far. First with the NHE Counsel, continuing with NHE’s website (www.FindTrueIdentity.com), fundraising strategies and events, and getting NHE’s Find True Identity Discipleship formally written and published online.
Please pray for NHE and Pastor Ron as a new season of life has begun. It can be frightening. But it’s even more exciting! So, be sure to keep checking www.FindTrueIdentity.com, NHE’s website and discipleship opportunity. The website is changing every day, as we add and edit content. NHE is looking forward to what God is and will do, making disciples of the sexually broken.
