Good Fruit Ministries
Helping People Live Free & Fruitful Lives
Matthew 12:33 says it this way: "A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad."
Why We Serve
Good Fruit Ministries' mission is to join the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in helping people, organizations, cities, and nations conquer the obstacles hindering them from living free, fruitful, and fulfilling lives.
Sometimes the fruit of our lives is not what we want it to be. We have dreams, goals, and expectations that seem to be hindered, and we get stuck. Good Fruit Ministries is a catalyst to allow God to provide healing and freedom to allow us to move forward in life.
Most of us have things in our past that hold us back from living peaceful, abundant, productive lives. This could be family dysfunction, trauma, lack of focus, or lack of identity. Good Fruit Ministries helps you identify these hinderances in your life, and to identify and address the root causes to create true freedom.
Living in the past robs you of the opportunity to enjoy the present. There are many events in your past, good and bad, which have the ability to hold your life hostage. The unhealed hurts, trauma and pain from the past come into your present, and steal hope, joy, and peace from your day-to-day life. It can cause you to pass up wonderful opportunities, and live in fear, bondage, or disappointment.
Ann Landers once said “There are people who believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go, and then do it.” Her words sum up the wisdom of letting go of the past and living in the present. Rather than take the road most traveled, which involves ignoring the past and pretending it does not matter, you need to go back and explore it. You may not like what lurks in your past, but there is only one way to deal with it successfully: Process what happened in a safe environment and let the Lord heal you and speak truth. The truth always sets you free!
God has given each of us gifts to be used for His glory and for the benefit of others. Everyone has them. Good Fruit Ministries can help you identify the design that God, the Father, installed in you and teach you how to use your gifts effectively. He gives these gifts to fulfill His plan of redemption on the earth. Whether or not you’re a believer, and whether or not you are using your gift for good or evil, everyone was created with one of them. It shapes who you are and what will bring you fulfillment.
Who We Serve
Our services are available to those who are interested in transformation. This is you if you are tired of living a life you know could be better. This is you if you are holding on to unforgiveness, hurt, confusion, trauma, or loss, and things just are not ok. This is you if you are not aware of your God-given identity and destiny, and aren’t sure of your place in this world. Good Fruit Ministries can help.
What We Offer
Good Fruit Ministries offers one on one prayer ministry sessions, monthly Freedom Night services, small group meetings, classes, workshops, articles, handouts, recommended reading, homework, and many resources that can help. If you would like to get to know us, attend a Freedom Night. Some of the classes we offer include: how to hear God for yourself, how to prophesy, how to become a Christ follower (discipleship), how to do prayer ministry, how to invest in your spouse, and more. We also excel in leadership development, helping leaders remove obstacles so that they can move forward. We teach people to pray and intercede, and to experience the power of God in their lives.
Why We Serve
Good Fruit Ministries exists because we believe no one should have to live with pain. Freedom is possible.
I, Esther, was born into a corrupt, dysfunctional family and suffered greatly. I tried to take my life when I was in my early 20’s and ended up in a mental hospital for several weeks. I saw psychiatrists and counselors and took lots of medication, but nothing changed. I met the Lord in my early 30’s and over time, He showed me the way to freedom. He took away the hurt, confusion, dysfunction, shame, unforgiveness, self-pity, depression, and more. I don’t know the last time I had a bad day. Life has truly changed! All members of the Good Fruit Ministries team have experienced freedom. There is hope for you as well.
Genesis 50:20 “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.”
