Thank you for your interest in becoming a Her Journey Leader. We are truly grateful for Her Journey Leaders. Without their dedication and commitment, Her Journey would not be possible. We are excited that you have an interest in joining our team and look forward to getting to know you better in the weeks ahead.
Before Training Begins:
Step 1: Complete 15 weeks of the Her Journey lessons as a participant. You can start HJ regardless of what lesson your group is on. You are not required to start your training at the beginning of the 15-week lesson cycle. If you do not have a Her Journey Group in your area, ARMS will require that you take the 15-week class via Zoom on your computer (completed within 8 weeks) and there will be a $50.00 fee for this. Order your Zoom class here. Call us at 503-846-9284 for the Zoom class schedule.
Step 2: Meet the basic requirements listed below:
- A follower of Jesus Christ󠄀
- In agreement with the ARMS Statement of Faith
- Out of abusive relationship at least one year󠄀
- One year past divorce date (if applicable)
- Connected with a church community

Step 3: Once we receive a verbal referral from your Her Journey Leader recommending you enter the training process:
- Complete the Her Journey Application and Policy Agreement forms. Have your Pastor or another spiritual leader complete the Church Recommendation Form.

- Your HJ leader will also fill out and send a written Leader Recommendation Form
- Complete the BACKGROUND CHECK permission form.
- Once all forms and background check are received, step four begins.
