Four Winds, formerly known as Ministry Village, was incorporated in November 2005 after envisioning a village of community outreach services similar to those provided on the grounds of First Baptist Church of Leesburg, Florida.


In 2009, Four Winds (formerly Ministry Village) received a grant from the Georgia Baptist Healthcare Ministry Foundation to construct a building to house all of the services that were offered.  At the completion of the building, the counseling center moved in with five counselors.


Over the past 19 years, we have enjoyed a very close relationship with our local DFCS office and other community support agencies which has allowed Four Winds to offer a number of vital services that breathes life into the most vulnerable, high-risk individuals and families in Walton and neighboring counties. These services include: Licensed Christian counseling, life skills, DFCS family restoration, parenting and co-parenting classes, substance abuse counseling, crisis intervention, and support groups


What we are doing now!


Our organization at large in the course of 1 year (Oct. 2022-Oct. 2023):

· Over 2,000 child therapy sessions and 1,000 adult therapy sessions were offered for healing. 

· 25 families experiencing instability gained physical and financial stability.
