Founders Careforce Lifekeys
When Jesus Christ adopted Isaiah 61 as his job description (Luke 4:18, 19) he underlined one of the most basic realities about life - Christ came to heal and restore.
Helping our local communities find Christ through their brokenness remains one of the greatest untapped evangelistic tools available to the church today.
Careforce Lifekeys programs address the issues of ordinary people, struggling with every day life, and are a powerful outreach tool. Yet Lifekeys is not just an evangelistic tool, it is also a profoundly important tool for church health and leadership development.
Careforce Lifekeys is both church health and evangelism in the 21st Century.

This program draws from research and best practice in the fields of psychology, sociology, education and theology.
