Serafina Anfuso

Joshua Ministries was founded in 1987 by Dr. Serafina Anfuso, MFT shortly after her grandson Joshua was fatally injured by a drunk driver. Her Christian based ministry of Restoration Therapy evolved out of her own spiritual journey beginning as an immigrant non-English speaking child, a Sister of St. Joseph of Orange, a wife and mother, and a bilingual educator and professor. It was during her work at the Navajo Boarding School that she developed a method of cross-cultural communication that would become the cornerstone of her ministry; the No JAB approach, a method of communication without using judgments, advice or blame.
Before her death in January of 2006, Dr. Anfuso had been an international speaker, retreat director, and trainer of therapists for both lay and clergy. She was a member and former regional director of the Association of Christian Therapists. She had both founded and directed homes for abused children and unwed mothers. Through her personal ministry of Restoration Therapy, countless numbers have been able to heal and become the person God intended for them to be. Joshua Ministries continues her legacy by reproducing the wealth of the forever timely materials she left behind as she journeyed to her heavenly home.
