A Place for the Heart exists to teach and inspire generations to live wholeheartedly in their identity as sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father.

We desire to live from the heart and pump life to the body of Christ.  Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”  We believe that guarding, tending and cultivating our hearts is essential to living life fully.

Founded in 1986 by Ken and Linda Helser, A Place for the Heart is the parent ministry of Jonathan David and Melissa Helser, the 18 Inch Journey and Cageless Birds.  Each of these various ministries serves a different function for glorifying God and loving people.  The vision of A Place for the Heart is expanding through these various means to bring ministry to the heart.
