Polis is the Greek word for city or body of citizens. Polis Recovery Project is a community-based counseling ministry founded upon the person and work of Christ, empowered by the Spirit and rooted in the wisdom of Scripture. We serve as a trusted, Christ-centered counseling resource for local churches and their communities functioning as a bridge between local church communities and the mental health sphere by intersecting spiritual formation with pastoral psychology. Polis provides quality, distinctively Christian counseling services to help people heal and grow. We view the counseling process as a collaborative, explorative journey in “self-awareness, story and relationships” in Christ (DeGroat). We approach counseling as culturally contextualized, theological fieldwork, and an opportunity to serve as a conduit to equip and empower churches to develop a culture of safety and transformation in their communities. This collaborative Kingdom work is just a small part of the restorative social architecture intrinsic to the renewal of God's polis.
