About Us

day seven ministries logo We’re glad that you’re curious and we’re happy that you’re here. We’ve found that the people who wonder about who we are and what we do have one important characteristic in common: they haven’t given up hope.

What Are You Hoping For?

  • Are you hoping that your own life can make a major shift and take a new, positive direction away from things that just seem like a big trap right now?
  • Are you hoping that your marriage can be restored and that the future can become bright again?
  • Are you hoping that a loved one can be freed from their relational struggles and find the restoration that only Christ can bring?

We’re with you. Why? Because we haven’t given up hope either. In fact, the idea of ‘hope’ is the very foundation of all that we do.

Day Seven Ministries’ Vision

To become a voice of hope and a place of restoration for those in sexual and relational conflict throughout every community within Central Pennsylvania.

A Voice of Hope and a Place of Restoration

a family in a wheat field Hope changes everything. It pushes away despair and empowers the first step. And as you are ready to take the first step toward restoration, we would count it an honor to partner with you.

It has been our sincere privilege to serve more than 3,000 clients over the years. Thousands of people who, at one point, thought that life looked pretty hopeless. But as they just kept taking the next step forward, their outlook began to change.

As our clients bravely take these steps toward change, we walk with them… but always let them be the ones to determine the pace and the path.

First and foremost, Day Seven Ministries is a place of grace. We don’t believe in imposing a “grid” on our clients. When you contact us, we’ll help you with a thorough assessment during our intake process, but then our counselors will let you find your way toward hope.

Honestly, we’ve found that you simply can’t push the pace of grace. The path toward restoration looks different for every person. We want to be respectful of that and partner with you with an individually-tailored counseling plan.

In short, it’s important for you to have the dignity of your own story of hope.

We’re simply happy to help you find it.

Here are the Basics on Day Seven Ministries

We are a nonprofit counseling organization that provides Christ-centered education and support to individuals and families who struggle with or are impacted by sexual brokenness. In our highly sexualized and fragmented society, relationships have become increasingly hard to sustain. God created us to be in relationship with others, but it isn’t long until we experience challenges to achieving and maintaining healthy relationships.

Safe, confidential help, which is grounded in the redeeming work of Christ, is available through the caring staff and counselors at Day Seven. Through counseling, specialized groups for men and women and educational opportunities, Day Seven Ministries provides understanding and hope to men and women who want to explore personal, relational or sexual issues in their lives.

Our History

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.

– Excerpts from Matthew 11:28-30,
(The Message translation)

When Enos Daniel Martin, M.D., founded Day Seven Ministries nearly 30 years ago, he was looking for a name that communicated the need to for true, spiritual rest. The name Day Seven reflects the example of God the Father, who rested on the seventh day of creation. In that same vein, as our clients take steps toward restoration, they eventually find rest from their sexual and relational struggles.
