2017 IS A "NEW DAY" FOR DAYSPRING - VISIT OUR "AT HOME" RESOURCES PAGE FOR DETAILS
Pam and Al Faatz, after twenty-four years of directing the Dayspring program, have relocated to Salem, OR. They have agreed with each other that as long as the Lord provides them the ability to continue to be "helpful help" they will continue to minister in the areas that have helped so many since the founding of Dayspring in 1993.
They are seeing clients in person at their Salem, OR office, but do nearly 100% of individual 1-on-1 sessions via the technology of the amazing "smart" phone. This concept is not new as they have done telephone sessions with clients such as Airline pilots (and others) while traveling from virtually around the globe. Group members when leaving town on business call in to "check-in" with their group - keeping them accountable and safe from the temptation of being "away alone".
Dayspring continues to provide the essentially the same services that we have provided for the past 24 years - with a change of venue - using technology to facilitate healing. If Satan can use cell phones, tablets, computers, etc., to keep men, women and teens slaves to pornography, etc., God can use those same tools to help set the captives free!
Small groups are also done via phone, making it possible to participate in a confidential group from any location. This concept is especially helpful for so many who live in locales that do not have trained recovery professionals or those who have schedules that preclude normal appointment times.
We are blessed to be a part of God's healing community!
Team Coaching with Al & Pam - Unique team approach brings out truth and speeds up the process, saving significant time and expense. "The TRUTH will set you free!" John 8:32 - Bible

This journey takes you on "the straight and narrow" but it can last for a lifetime!
Pam & Al have been frequent guests and hosts for Northwest Radio and Television shows, presented their FINDING FREEDOM workshops in churches and Christian schools and have served as Family Camp keynote speakers. Their hope is that through creating a SAFE PLACE to be real, lives will be healed, the "silence" that allows abuse to ravage our families will be broken, and the secrets and shame that keep us hiding and lonely will come into the light of acceptance, grace, love and truth. Their desire and commitment is to give help, hope, healing and the tools necessary to become FREE from the bondage, to help individuals, couples and families find their healing through the support of a program that understands and has helped thousands find healing.

+ Believing is stepping out in faith and taking an action step/steps - one at a time - one day at a time.
+ Trusting is taking the risk to prove to ourselves that God and others can be safe.
+ Coaching, Lectures & Groups are simply tools to enable us to find God's plan.
+ Community is experiencing Faith, Believing, Trusting, Learning and Growing/Changing through practice . . .
TOGETHER AS GOD PLANNED FROM THE BEGINNING! WE NEED EACH OTHER!!
Founders and Directors, Al & Pam Faatz began working in 1993 to create a faith based recovery community that's as rooted in the scriptures as it is in one another - and also as rooted in one another as it is in scriptures. We believe that's what community is all about - connection.
