Experience Communion

cheering women who are in dark places on to love God's Word
 

Our Mission

Living Light is the local mission arm of Established Footsteps Ministry.

Birthed in December 2009 through a simple jail visit to help one hurting woman,

Living Light has now become a mission of various outreaches to women in

the dark places of jails and strip clubs.

 

We know the heart of God longs to reach into the darkness and rescue His children.

When women are in dark places, they need a living person to come and bring the LIGHT to them, walk beside them, and continually shine the brightness of the Truth of God's Word into their daily life steps.

 

We currently have three outreaches, Jail Friends, Cherished and Building Bridges with Books.

Volunteers on each outreach team are simply women who have come to know

the LIGHT of LIFE, JESUS, and they are seeking to walk in His Truth.  

As we minister in His name, we take the light of God's Word into these dark places

and accomplish the core mission of Established Footsteps Ministry,

to help people establish their daily life steps in Truth.

"For You have delivered my soul from death, indeed my feet from stumbling, so that I may walk before God in the light of the living.."  

Psalm 56:13
 
 
 

We are a group of women who are rooted in God, planted in His church,

and are passionate about seeing women break free from bondage.

Our vision is to reach out to women who are currently incarcerated and offer a Godly

friendship of encouragement and a pointing to Truth.

Our goal is to encourage incarcerated women through consistent contact

via letters.  In this way, we share one on one friendship and the Word of God

in order to help each woman realize that she is not forgotten,

that God loves her and there is power for living in His Word.

Our desire is that these women would experience the breaking of chains and healing of

wounds in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through His Word as we

intentionally offer a Christian friendship that models that kind of life.

We are a group of women who are rooted in God, planted in His church, and are passionate about seeing women break free from bondage.

Our vision is to reach out to women who are currently working in the sex industry, letting each one know there is a God who loves and cherishes her beyond measure.

Our goal is to visit clubs where they work, reaching out with a gift which invites them into friendship. Through that friendship we aim to encourage them through prayer, testimony, and the Word of God, in order to help them realize how valuable they are.

Our desire is that through these friendships, each woman would begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and experience the breaking of chains

and healing of wounds through the power of His Word.

Cherished Leader,
Carlie Gabbert

We are a group of women who are rooted in God, planted in His church,

and we are passionate about seeing women encourage their children to grow in the Lord.

Our vision as Christian women is to reach out to mothers and grandmothers who are currently incarcerated, and encourage them in their mothering roles by offering a unique opportunity for them to connect with their children and grandchildren in reading.

Our goal is to strengthen their own reading skills, and also give them an opportunity to offer assistance in strengthening the reading skills of their own children.

Our desire is that these women would experience the love of Christian women who are coming alongside them in this life skill.  Through this experience we gain opportunities to share Truth and also supply these moms and grandmothers the opportunity to encourage their children to be able to read and comprehend the Truth of God’s Word.
