A CANCER diagnosis can cause intense fear –
Stronghold Ministry helps you take the fear out of cancer!

Our founders, Joe and Terri Fornear, went through an intense Stage IV metastatic melanoma battle and Joe has been cancer free since 2003. The Lord was their Stronghold – holding on to them especially when they were too weak to hang on to Him. Hence, our name, “He only is my rock and my salvation, My Stronghold; I shall not be shaken.” – Psalm 62:6
