Friendship is one of life’s greatest gifts. Having a trusted and encouraging friend to confide in during a time of crisis is particularly valuable. Yet for some people in the midst of challenges, the sense of loneliness and isolation can feel more overwhelming than the crisis itself. Sometimes we just need to talk with someone who “gets it.”
Walk Right In Ministries wants to support you in getting connected with someone who has “been in your shoes” but will do more than just empathize. Our prayer is that you are connected with someone who will pray with you and encourage you in your walk with God — the essential foundation for a life that truly thrives. We call friends like that “Walking Partners.”
A Walking Partner is someone who will cheer you on while helping you maintain a clear and biblical plum line against which to measure your relationships, choices, goals and dreams. You can get “social networking” and good mentoring in lots of places but Jesus-focused, disciple-growing kind of friendship like this is soul-reaching and can change lives for eternity. Walking Partners celebrate the Living God and will respectfully and lovingly share Him.
Sometimes a Walking Partner is like a “crisis coach.” You may simply need a note of encouragement from someone who has had an experience that resonates with yours. Perhaps an email or two may be enough to spur you on. On the other hand, you may appreciate meeting for coffee or going for a walk once in a while.
We believe that professional counselors would be needed in far fewer circumstances if more Christians lived out their calling to be disciples — in a lifestyle of walking shoulder-to-shoulder with one another listening, encouraging, exhorting and empowering in relationships where Christ is central to the conversation.
Walk Right In Ministries is privileged to collaborate with other like-minded individuals and organizations to help equip disciples and connect hurting people with Christ-centered support.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17
“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
