Our Mission, Our Ministry

All around, people are driving through life with big dents in their souls.
God wants you to experience so much more!

On the journey of life, we start out much like a shiny new car.  Then life happens.  We get rear-ended.  Sometimes those dents are big: divorce, adultery, addiction, death.  Sometimes they’re insidiously small: anxiety, broken thought processes, feeling empty but not really sure why.  We miss out on the joy and peace we were destined for.  

Get equipped with life-changing spiritual tools to transform your story 

At The Dented Fender our passion is to equip folks with tools and principles to move forward through each challenge.  To no longer be defined by the dents of life, but instead to allow challenge to grow into something greater, richer.  To emerge with strength and blessing from the journey, boldly shining with newfound peace and joy.  We hope you’ll join us on this invaluable journey of restoration and hope!

We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.

--2 Corinthians 10:5 (MSG)

Commit your path to the Eternal; let Him direct you.  Put your confidence in Him, and He will follow through with you.   He will spread out righteousness for you as a sunrise spreads radiance over the land; He will deliver justice for you into the light of the high sun.

--Psalm 37:5-6 (VOICE)

When God sees you, He doesn’t see the crumbling pieces of the person you used to be. He sees the masterpiece you are becoming.
