A balanced, rational model for Biblical DID ministry!
Dr. Alaine Pakkala founded this unique, pioneering ministry in 1994 and has led Lydia Discipleship Ministries (LDM) in equipping counselors, friends, family members, and pastors who are burdened to minister to people who are emotionally shattered. LDM offers over 80 hope-filled resources to these helpers which includes training in appropriate discipleship. Dr. Alaine Pakkala especially understands the struggles facing those who have been abused in childhood.
Our mission statement for the past 27 years has always been to make the church a safe place to disciple emotionally wounded people by raising up effective teams of Christian workers who can encourage, support and put their hands into the hand of the Good Shepherd.
