NewHeart Expressions (NHE)
NHE was founded by Pastor Ron Browning in 2002. Serving as a ministry platform and outreach to sexually broken men and their families. Having traveled this same journey—in thought, choice, and feeling—Ron desires to share the answer of Jesus’ Life, with the sexually and relationally broken.
NHE exists to see those wrecked and defeated by the painful and deceptive insanities of sexual brokenness, find the peace of God’s power (grace) and God’s path (truth), for help and healing. To see those lost to sin’s hunts, haunts, and habits redeemed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Captured by grace. Set free by truth. To overcome life-shattering addictions and identities, and the brokenness of false intimacies—for a recovering redemption.
Pastor Ron came to know Jesus, as His sovereign Lord and saving Life, in the Fall of 1994. God began to a good work in Ron—to save him, change him, and then use him. So, while sitting in a prison cell, ‘doing time’ for crimes across several states. Holy Spirit began to teach Ron’s heart God’s Word.
Over time, the Lord opened Pastor Ron’s heart to Ezekiel 36:25-27, and later to its New Testament agreement 2 Corinthians 5:17. Birthing within his heart a ministry calling; to reach out to the sexually broken with the Gospel for help and healing. Teaching God’s Word to sexually broken men, and sometimes their wives and families, that they might hear and receive the grace and truth of Jesus Christ. That they too might be made NEW! And learn to live from that newness of Life—Jesus’ Life.
I (Sovereign God) will sprinkle you with clean water, and you will be clean and acceptable to Me. I will wash away everything that makes you unclean, and I will remove your disgusting idols. I will take away your stubborn heart and give you a new heart and a desire to be faithful. You will have only pure thoughts, because I will put my Spirit in you and make you eager to obey my laws and teachings… Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new (Ezekiel 36:25-27; 2 Corinthians 5:17, CEV).
The sexually broken are flooded, not only with intense desires in conflict, but with the paralyzing fears of self-focus and selfish ambition, anger, false perceptions and repressed truth, misguided anxieties, and many destructive habits that hunt and haunt their lives. But as the broken pass from sin-and-death and are awakened to God’s forgiving Life (John 5:24; Romans 5:10), we are all empowered to walk in true wholeness—i.e., freedom in Christ—help and healing for the soul (Romans 5, 6, 7, & 8). Where condemnation fades in the light of our atoning Lamb’s forgiveness. Where self-living is exchanged for Jesus’ Life living in and through us. Where the failures of sin, sins, and sinning are overcome by grace and truth. Where the Gospel sets captives FREE to learn how to live FREE! (Galatians 5:1)
NHE and Pastor Ron have a passion to see every person find their identity in Jesus’ Life, not in the brokenness and falsities of their own sins. But to know and experience Jesus as sovereign LORD and forgiving Lamb, as saving LIFE and rescuing Liberator, as all-wise Leader and Light-Source of Grace & Truth, as the perfect Lover of our souls. Jesus’ Life is the ultimate expression of Heaven and of the ‘new heart’!
You don’t want to miss God’s great exchange—Jesus’ righteous Life for our sin-dead-lives.
