The AGORA Network story begins with a crisis, a mental health and spiritual crisis that I suffered (Allan) in my life.
On July 7th, 2017 in a split second my life changed when I suffered a severe stroke. But God protected my body. The only paralysis I suffered was in my speech. After a month of recovery and learning to speak again, I began the hardest battle of my life. It was a battle with mental health; PTSD, severe anxiety, and depression. I thought if this was my new normal then I didn’t want to live. I was admitted into a mental health unit for 10 days. There I began to recover mentally and spiritually. The road was long and hard at times but God’s goodness led to repentance and the ongoing restoration of my soul.
From this crisis AGORA Network Ministries was birthed and a new journey began for Bonnie and me. Agora is a ministry that comes along side the church. Our desire is to stem the mental health crisis and and stigma we face in our society and churches.
