A Christian film production company has launched a new streaming platform to assist churches in helping their members heal from addiction, trauma and brokenness.
The new service, called Soul Refiner, offers churches and individuals cinematic classes for those battling a variety of issues, including anxiety, ponography, betrayal, grief, PTSD, addiction, divorce and depression.
KingdomWorks Studios – the same company behind the Conquer series – launched it.
Jeremy Wiles, the co-founder of Soul Refiner, said the company has been working on the platform for seven years. It can, he said, “totally transform the church.”
“Wounded and broken people are flooding our pews, enslaved to addictions,” Wiles said. “Marriages, families, lives are falling apart. So we decided to come alongside the church and do something about it.”
KingdomWorks Studios calls Soul Refiner the “world’s first video streaming platform that offers churches and individuals cinematic classes on inner-healing – anywhere, any time.”
“The essence of Soul Refiner is sanctification,” said Tiana Wiles, co-founder of Soul Refiner. “It's to disciple men, women and children to become conquerors, overcomers and leaders in Christ.”
The Soul Refiner platform, according to a promotional video, includes original content and “top Christian teachers and experts” who “provide answers and solutions to the tough and messy issues of life.”
Soul Refiner is being launched as America is experiencing a spike in divorce rates, suicide hotline calls, and traffic to porn sites during the coronavirus pandemic, a press release said. Soul Refiner calls it an “impending mental health crisis.”
“We hear from church leaders every day. This sudden extraordinary change in circumstances has left them feeling ill-equipped to handle the massive emotional and mental turmoil,” Jeremy Wiles said. “We now have a great tool to help them navigate through these unprecedented times with Soul Refiner.”
The platform, available at SoulRefiner.com, allows users to “stream video classes from your device and host small group meetings online” using an “Interactive Study Guide and digital discipleship tools,” a press release said.
