Flaming Wings & Swords Ministries U.P.C.I

“Flaming Wings & Swords Ministries U.P.C.I.” (United Pentecostal Christians International) offers pastoral care counseling and life coaching for everyone, as well as a free Bible Study for ladies every Wednesday evening at 7pm.
 There will be time at the Bible Study for sharing concerns, which is called “Share Care”. Ladies have the opportunity to share their experiences, thoughts and feelings related to difficulties raising children, job overload, mental health, and relationships.
(Parking at 142 School Street, Putnam, CT).
Sister Chantal is ordained clergy at CLA with training in Psychology and has experienced the tough side of life, having navigated through the storm successfully, wanting to give encouragement to those who are still in the storm.
The Share Care is confidential and meant for women to find a safe harbor where they will find hope and encouragement to stay strong. Other topics that will be discussed at the Share Care are grief, and healing from abuse and trauma.
Brother Chris Ryder is ordained clergy, who offers business life coaching to all men who want to start their own business as well as to those who struggle with staying in business. He will evaluate the situation  together with you and find the best solution. As a former business owner himself he knows the hurdles and struggles and will give helpful advice on the matter, might it be a specific question related to taxes or how to start a business in general.
Brother Chris Ryder has been missionary overseas for 8 years and can give missionaries who want to go overseas helpful insight on the matter, might it be how to adjust to other cultures, starting a house church or how to stay strong as a family in a foreign country.
Brother Chris and Sister Chantal have experienced persecution while being overseas and can give advice on how to defend yourself and your family, as well as how to recover from persecution.
Both are in ministry for over two decades.

Flaming Wings & Swords Ministries U.P.C.I. has adopted the Ryder family motto: “Semper Robustus”, which means roughly translated: “Always Resilient”.
The word “robust” comes from the Latin word for oak tree.
Just like an oak tree, which resists every weather condition without being moved, so we resist all storms of life.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 KJV
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
