Understanding harmful religious experiences

We exist for those impacted by spiritual abuse by providing support for the prevention of victimization and revictimization, creating a safe place to ask the hard questions, to heal, and to rebuild.

You are not alone.

STAT 1

2.7m

Every year, 2.7 million church members fall into inactivity. We are left to wonder how many of these individuals have suffered from religious abuse.

STAT 2

80%

Religious abuse survivors who agree or strongly agree that their experience with the church after their abuse negatively affected their spiritual life.

STAT 3

1 in 10

Among pastors, 1 in 10 have not received any training to aid congregants in trauma recovery.

STAT 4

40%

Nearly 40% of women who were recruited into sex trafficking indicated that a crisis of economic well-being preceded their recruitment. Women who are excommunicated from their cult group almost always find themselves in an economic crisis, putting them at heightened risk for being trafficked.

Who We Help

When someone with spiritual authority or influence uses their power in a manner that harms another.

What is Spiritual Abuse?

Who We Are

beEmboldened is a team of individuals who are passionate about truth and spiritual health. Our hearts are broken for those suffering from spiritual abuse. Here, we will keep working until a light has been shone on every false teacher's tactic, every deceiver's lie, and every manipulator's hidden agenda. We will keep working until you are walking in freedom and living out your ability to choose for yourself.

We value every aspect of you, including your time and your skills. Because of this, we engage our volunteers in a process of creating an agreement for their volunteer relationship with us. This sets you up for a healthy experience, with defined boundaries, so you're free to enjoy yourself!

Volunteer

Your financial gifts enable us to keep working on your behalf and on the behalf of others who need our support. Religious abuse and cult trauma are major problems today, but with your giving, we can change the future narrative of those around us. Let's take back our power and put an end to spiritual exploitation.

Donate

Help us get the word out! Leave positive reviews, like, follow, share, and talk about this important work being done. Many individuals who have experienced religious trauma have kept their stories quiet. You never know who is in need of our services, so tell everyone!

What We Do

Mentoring

It can be a challenge to find someone to walk with you who understands your experience. Maybe you've found a friend to relate to, but they don't have the training and skills that would really benefit your healing process. Our mentoring services can help.

Programs

Your questions are important to us. Because we recognize a huge gap in available resources, we're focusing on creating content that gets you the information you need. All designed just for you and your personal story, and brought to you in a safe and confidential way.

The Getaway:

Unstuck

I have so much gratitude for what you all have done and have been tearing up each time I think about writing this all and trying to summarize it. We got our loved one back. How can I express what this means?

Working with beEmboldened has been incredibly validating and healing. Religious conditioning can be invisible and run deep, even when we think we've left it behind.

Choosing to speak up, to ask for help, to seek counsel, has been one of the few sensible choices I have ever made in my life. And I thank God it happened. I have been speaking with beEmboldened only for a few months, and yet I can already see a difference.
