Meet Keturah

Keturah Ford, M.S. Ed. — Certified Trauma Healing Facilitator, Certified SYMBIS Facilitator, & Founder of Healthy Relationships Network (Founded in 2017)

With a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Master of Science in Education, Keturah pursued a career serving people in the fields of social services, family literacy, and adult education. Her experience spans from working as an advocate in a domestic violence shelter to a family support worker and literacy instructor in the capital city of New Jersey to a teacher and tutoring entrepreneur serving teens/adults improving their basic skills after becoming unemployed, displaced, incarcerated, etc.

Formally accepting the call to teach, preach, and counsel with the Bible in 2009, she received intensive mentorship support at her local church and attended Jameson School of Ministry (2011-2013) until she gave birth to her daughter. Keturah later became certified in both Bible Based Trauma Healing (Trauma Healing Institute) and the SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts) Assessment. She has also completed professional development training in Emotional Management (Center for Pastoral Counseling) and Grief + Loss Coaching (American Association of Christian Counselors).

Over the years, her unique ministry of intersecting faith and healthy dating/marriage has allowed her to serve, speak, and facilitate at the Single, Saved, & Satisfied Conference (Virginia) and the New Jersey Ministers’ Wives + Widows Retreat .

Keturah continues to actively teach + preach at her local church and other online events (due to COVID-19).

Keturah’s service to others is greatly impacted by her personal experience of redemption and healing by her Lord + Savior Jesus Christ as she hit “rock bottom” in low self-worth, confusion, unhealthy relationships, and a lack of focus years ago.

She still testifies that if it had not been for God, she would have gone down a “different path.” Her service to others is passionate and embraces the fervent love of God towards people who are growing + evolving amidst suffering, grief, trauma, and injustice.

Two of Keturah’s greatest and most important roles are being a wife to Jason for the last 14 years and a mom to Jordyn, a “spunky” First Grader.
