About the good Life Support Group
Love Quest International Church started its support group on February 28, 2021 as a loving response to the heightened challenges of depression, fear, anxiety, mental health, violence, and addictions due to the stress of the pandemic. Our support groups are open and available to those of all religious backgrounds - yet our primary foundation is overtly Christian in tone and vibrant in expression. Similar to 12 Step Programs like Alcoholics, Narcotics and Sex Anonymous - all were founded upon Christian principles that became secularized - we declare the need to trust and relinquish one’s life to the control of God as a prerequisite for successful and healthy living.
The current provincial Public Health Order on Gatherings & Events clearly defines support groups as:
support group: a group of people who provide support to one another with respect to grief, disability, substance use, addiction or another psychological, mental or physical health condition
[Pg. 7, PHO on Gatherings & Events, March 31]
In accordance with this, we have created a structure and format for our gatherings to be able to provide the adequate support needed for all those attending during this time.

Each our support group is led by our Founding & Lead Pastor, Pastor Terrance Richmond - who holds a degree in Marriage & Family Christian Counselling and has training as a first responder. This background has provided him with first-hand experience in dealing with people in various anxious states, stresses and other types of mental distress.
