"Reconciliation is a way of life."

Jim Van Yperen, Founder & President


Is reconciliation possible ? 

Here is what others say . . .

"You helped us create a circle of trust that was life-changing and showed us the way to begin the journey of forgiving one another. We learned how to be a community of believers."  Pastor

"I was a young, arrogant, recent graduate from bible college who believed he was equipped to conquer the ministry world. I couldn’t have been more wrong. God gave me a front row seat to the most difficult yet most rewarding aspects of ministry. Words can’t express how grateful I am to God and his workers in Metanoia for reviving our body as a church and reshaping me as a follower of Christ." Youth Pastor

"The last four years have been four of the hardest years of my life. At the same time, we have been greatly blessed and have learned in ways seminary could never teach.  Jim mentored us through a six-week restoration process and a Solemn Assembly.  The theme for the past four years has been reconciliation, forgiveness and unity. We have a long way to go but have made great strides."   Senior Pastor

"As we went through the process of confessing, cleansing and forgiving the sin in our church, we saw God’s love restored. The glory of God that ultimately prevailed and put our church where it is today, was worth the pain."  Elder
