 We are delighted you have found your way to us.

st.francis jpegWe hope that as you move through our web site, you will be stirred to investigate our programs to see whether they would meet a current need in your life's journey.  We welcome your calls, emails and perhaps your visit with us at one of our monthly Taize' prayer services

St. Francis Center for Restoration, in it's 10th year of service to the community is dedicated to it's mission: "rekindling the journey in Christ." We offer Spiritual Direction providing you with a listening ear and reflection on your life story to discover where God's hand is and has been moving with you.

We offer workshops on a variety of topics including boundaries, dreams, saints, healing of memories, generational healing, and the enneagram personality profile system.

We come together with the community offering quiet music (chanting), silence, sacred readings, and candlelight in our monthly Taize' prayer service. Here's a time to be anonymous and sink into the peace of the Holy Spirit. Taize' is a wonderful opportunity to slip in, be filled with God's love...and slip out if one wishes to. Many who minister to the needs of others especially find this a meaningful experience into restoration.


The St. Francis Center for Restoration will hold it's annual meeting on Saturday, March 12th, 2016 at 8:00 AM. The meeting will be at the SFCR office 2010 Oak St., Melbourne Beach, Fl. 32951. All are welcome to attend.

Receiving Now the Gifts of the Near Death Experience

Near Death Experiences reveal a Divine template for the spiritual journey into unconditional love.  We will explore how marked by peace, forgiveness, increased self-esteem, a hunger for spirituality, loss of the fear of death, finding our unique purpose, and the conviction that all that really matters in life is to love as deeply as the eternal Light of God loves us.   This session (based on Linns’ new book, The Gifts of Near- Death Experiences) is to experience a step of this transformation now – without the inconvenience of first dying.

The NDE Life Review: God’s Process For Healing Hurts Now

Those who have a Near Death Experience (NDE) frequently return able to give and receive forgiveness even with the deepest hurts.  This is especially true for the 25% who have had a life review where they experience not only what they did but being in the shoes of those they hurt.   If they have been hurt, they often experience living in the shoes of the offender and how he was also wounded person.  Feeling his wounds replaces vengence with understanding and compassion.  This session (based on Linns, The Gifts Near-Death Experiences) will explore and experience this dynamic so our hurts can be healed now and not just during our final life review.
