Restore One is a ministry of Retreats, Group Work, Training Workshops and Counseling. Our goal is to mentor breakthrough and freedom to Believers for greater spiritual maturity by making changes at the level of Identity.
The ministries of Restore One are designed to be a complement to the teaching and training ministries of any church; however, we present a dimension of Discipleship Training and Leadership Development that addresses not just the delivery of spiritual information, but the experience of spiritual transformation that exposes emotional immaturity, breaks the power of old strongholds, and gives an individualized, new vision from God for maturity.
Each of the ministries of Restore One is based on a training we call IDENTITY-BASED TRANSFORMATION, and it addresses:
- the obvious painfulness of life and what it does to our interior condition;
- the shame-based identity that we adopt because of that pain;
- the flesh-patterns that we develop to protect and provide for ourselves;
- the false-self that we present and promote to hide our shame;
- the power of feedback, dialogue with God, and listening-prayer;
- the transformation at the level of Identity, by the Love of the Father, the Grace of the Lord Jesus, and Holy Spirit-taught truth. (Eph 1:17-18; 2 Cor 13:14)
Carter was in pastoral ministry for fifteen years after seminary with churches in TX and LA. He resigned the pastorate in 1998 to undergo intense counseling to treat his own addiction. On his journey, Carter discovered that he was completely unaware of his “blind-spot,” his shame-based identity, and the false self he created as a pastor to hide behind. Out of his discoveries, his life changed at the level of identity, and Carter came to discover the power of Identity-based transformation. The level of healing in his own journey makes him uniquely qualified to speak to the issues of strongholds and shame in both the individual person’s life as a disciple and leader, and in the life and culture of a church.
