CHRISTINA GALLINA FLOOD
mission & purpose
We are a positive presence in the community representing Jesus Christ and facilitating complete healing to women of all ages; trusting that they in turn will desire to give back to the community and further God’s kingdom.
Today she is a powerful speaker and ministry leader, but it was Christina's own painful and personal journey from sexual abuse that brought her to this place. With a life in crisis, she began a relentless search for truth and healing. As Christina began to experience true freedom from the pain of the past, she was filled with a desire to help others do the same, and God began to bring hurting souls to her in earnest. Her journey of healing and helping has spanned more than twenty years as she has worked with pastors, churches, and community outreach to bring the message of deliverance to others. Through mentoring, inner healing prayer, and leading support groups such as Celebrate Recovery and now her own S.H.O.U.T. support group, Christina has witnessed amazing results for those seeking healing. She loves people unconditionally and cares deeply for their needs.
As a speaker, counselor, and executive director of Healing Hearts Home, the Lord uses Christina to bring hope, help and healing to others. Christina studies under esteemed mentors and doctors to gain wisdom in the field of mental health and holds a Bachelors Degree in Pastoral Christian Counseling. She is dedicated to the goal of attaining her Doctorate. Christina's energy and enthusiasm are both contagious and inspiring as she continues to share her life stories and how the Lord has set her free from addictions, hurts, and the wounds left by sexual abuse and trauma.
Our long term vision is to open several transitional homes that will house young women who desire to participate in their recovery and obtain life and career skills.
Healing Hearts Home ministry will be opening a long-term recovery home in Port Huron for young women seeking to recover from past or current circumstances including trauma and abuse. The aim of Healing Hearts Home is to empower victimized women of all ages to achieve complete recovery with the hope that they will then desire to give back to the community and further God’s kingdom. Our holistic approach to recovery seeks to restore self-respect, build character, and teach practical life skills such as cooking, education, financial budgeting, and planning.
What sets us apart from other ministries is this goal of complete recovery; in contrast to short term help provided by many resources in the Blue Water area. In over twenty years of ministry to women, through Celebrate Recovery, S.H.O.U.T. support groups, and pastors/churches, I have painfully watched women struggle to get the long term housing and help they really need to overcome their pain whether it was physical, sexual, mental, emotional, and/or substance abuse. The average limit for a shelter stay in our area is four to eight weeks, and that is not long enough. Over and over I have witnessed struggling women going back to the situation from which they removed themselves, only to continue the helpless cycle of abuse. I am convinced that the long term support provided through Healing Hearts Home will be life changing for the women it serves.
Young women in Port Huron and the surrounding areas are hurting from the pain of abuse. Many suffer silently because they see no real way out. We want to change that.
