In 2011, Dan Bove founded Pause Ministries. His goal: to create a safe space for men to heal their brokenness in a supportive, Christ-centered environment by putting an end to the patterns and addictions that cause pain.

The organizational vision was simple: restore men's relationships - beginning with their faith, then extending to themselves and their families. Participants found their grounding in one-on-one meetings, Pause groups, and Restore workshops, and lived in a community with each other in the Healing House.

In 2019, the ministry expanded to also serve women. Today, Pause ministers to all who seek relational healing - men and women, husbands and wives - with the goal of preserving families and strengthening them for generations of growth to come.
