REVIVE MINISTRIES AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
Revive Ministries started in 2017. Robert Colon, a US Air Force veteran, NJIT graduate, and a peer suffering from mental illness for 15+ years, had the vision to reach the disenfranchised by hosting training and awareness events in the community. Robert is a very active leader in his church. He has the vision to make his choices out of hope and not fear. Numerous events later, Robert Colon has a passion for spreading the idea of hope to his communities while also providing resources to those suffering. Revive Ministries' four pillars of focus is Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, Substance Abuse, and Human Trafficking. It's OK not to be OK because there is help out there. Don't make a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Promote a holistic approach to recovery while adopting the idea that our communities should celebrate recovery.
“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.”
