The Many Faces of Abuse - Gathering

We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, community-based, non-denominational, multi-cultural, Christian outreach ministry committed to providing services to people who are secretly hurting.
DZEC is a ministry that arrests the emotional effects of domestic violence. Domestic violence is bondage without the physical ropes and ties, it binds you up emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. DZEC gives you awareness and tools to get past these issues. We empower people of all backgrounds to help them come into their true identity.      

The purpose/mission of DZEC is to empower people to come into their true identities through inner healing and restoring hope to the secretly hurting.  DZEC stands for a way out, by way of Isaiah 11:16. It paves the way for all people and assures them that they can heal.  Click here to read "Spiritual Inheritance." 


Daughters of Zion Empowerment Center, Inc. has a God-ordained mandate to impact God's people in today's society. As founder of this ministry, I've been given a vision and an assignment to fulfill God's purpose on earth. Isaiah 42:16 says, "And I will lead the blind by a way they knew not, and I will lead them in paths they have not known; I will make darkness light before them and crooked things straight; these things will I do unto them and not forsake them." I have seen this scripture come to pass in every area of my life, and now with DZEC. So I'm writing the vision, so he that read it, may run with it, and together we will fulfill what has been decreed and declared over DZEC. (Hab. 2:2-4)


God first took me to Isaiah 11:16, which says, "And there shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt." Assyria represents a nation that was fierce, cruel, and showed little mercy to those they conquered.  God said that the remnant that has been left in Assyria, represents His people who are under the oppression of the pain that sits numb in the unconscious part of our soul that dictates our decisions. In the same manner that He brought the Children of Israel out of Egypt by making a path thru the Red Sea, that is how He is going to deliver His people.  DZEC serves as a two-fold purpose. First, it will be the highway and path that God uses to bring His people out of a place of brokenness, despair and emotional bondage through ministering the Word of God. Secondly, it will serve as a training center that will empower His people through workshops & seminars, equipping them to posses their spiritual inheritance. 




Daughters of Zion Empowerment Center was founded and brought into fruition in June 2006, through a vision God gave to Pastor Karen.  Called into the ministry in 1995, God-ordained Pastor Karen to preach His Word and minister healing.  Having personally experienced being broken and wounded from childhood to marriage to adulthood, Pastor Karen is very much aware of how easy it is to appear OK, be in ministry and still be secretly hurting.  
Through the power of God's Word, Pastor Karen continually receives healing to the fragmented places of the soul as the oil of the Repairer of the Breach is released through the ministry of the word. Her passion is to rejuvenate and help people to know that there is greatness after any kind of trauma.  Out of her experiences and encounters with God, Daughters of Zion Empowerment Center was born to minister to the population of hurting people that have gone unnoticed.   


Healing Gatherings

Saturday, June 10, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM

Abuse takes on many forms. Some types we are readily able to recognize, while some forms are very subtle.  Abuse - whether physical, verbal, emotional or physical, verbal, emotional or psychological - is abuse and it hurts.

This gathering will dissect and expose the many faces of abuse, such as the faces found on our Board that are hidden in many disguises.

Have you been secretly hurting and hiding behind the way you speak, in the way you dress, your job and how you handle relationships? Are you happy with being isolated and okay with being by yourself?

The dynamics of abuse can hinder how we live from day-to-day. It will continue to tell you lies.

The Many Faces of Abuse is a gathering and the 7 Steps to Wholeness is a 22-week class that will both leave you equipped to finally be free from lingering effects of abuse and step up and out into your true face of freedom and power.
