RMI Bereavement Support Team

The primary goal of the Bereavement Support Team (BST) is to communicate caring to bereaved individuals, families, or even communities, wherever possible. While our immediate attention is currently focused on our own Assembly and the surrounding environment, we have also initiated and/or responded to other requests and will continue to do so as the need arises.

Grief is a natural reaction to loss of any kind, but especially loss caused by the death of a loved one. Everyone grieves differently. There’s no one right way to grieve. As grief/bereavement counselors, our main role is to listen. Hence members are required to learn to listen, as well as listen to learn. It is by listening actively and compassionately, that we are better able to understand what the counselee is experiencing; hear what Holy Spirit may be saying; and consequently be more helpful to those we counsel.

We encourage counselees to express their thoughts and feelings. We are also careful not to criticize or judge them, as they express their thoughts and emotions. We also try to help counselees to understand the grieving process: that it does not proceed in a straight line. It is much more likely to fluctuate: vacillating through stages such as denial, anger, depression. Shock, numbness, disbelief, sadness, helplessness, fear, anxiety, are some other common reactions that may be experienced.

A hug, a touch, words like “I’m so sorry;” along with the willingness to listen with empathy; to sit or be with them, where possible; to help them feel loved and cared for: These are some of the major tools we employ.

Special occasions and anniversaries can be very challenging for grievers. To this end the BST arranges from time to time, for example at Christmas, a gathering which facilitates sharing and camaraderie with other grievers. These events also include refreshments as well as a guest speaker to provide professional encouragement.

The BST is a young organism committed to growing and learning, in order to serve our clients better, and meet their needs more effectively.

Hosting Department

Being a host or hostess at Restoration Ministries involves more that just standing and shaking the hands of those who enter our doors. We are the first people that the individual sees and first impressions are lasting impressions. We help our Pastors to fulfill the vision God has given them. We are the eyes and the ears of the church. We make people feel warm and welcomed and in doing this, there must be sincerity of the heart. We must love the people of God. When members or visitors come to Restoration Ministries they should always feel the love and presence of God. A warm smile goes a long way along with respecting the differences in people. First Corinthians 13: 4-8 sums up the very nature of our Host and Hostess. Love always conquers all. Shalom.

2 Timothy 2:19-21

19 Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness." 20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. 21 If a man cleanses himself from the latter (the ignoble), he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
