Prodigal Souls is ministry focused on fighting mental health and addiction issues through fitness, nutrition, and the local church.
Our goal is to create a community where individuals who are struggling with depression or addiction can meet and find support to get through their struggle. We want to create a program that doesn’t become a coping tool but instead we want to create something that truly makes an impact.
We hope to make this impact through the following:
In 2014 our Founder Ford Henley lost a good friend to suicide. This wasn’t the first time that he had lost someone to suicide. He knew he knew he had to do something to help but he didn’t know what to do exactly.
He had recently re-dedicated his life to Christ in 2011 and had noticed a lack of focus on Mental Health support in the Church as he was going through his own battle with depression and social anxiety. He knew that whatever he did to help with suicide prevention had to be Christ focused.
In 2016 Ford discovered Crossfit and the amazing community support that comes with the challenging support. Crossfit challenged him mentally, physically and he knew he had found his solution.
Prodigal Souls was officially formed in 2017 to help combat suicide, depression and addiction through fitness, nutrition and faith.
“You, LORD, are my lamp; the LORD turns my darkness into light."
"For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees"
"The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all"
