Depression possesses a nature all of its own. Not a pretty one either.


Depression makes you believe that you are worthless as a human being even though you have accomplished great things in life.


It debilitates and disables its victims sapping joy and self-worth day by day.


Labeled the silent assassin its tentacles slowly, discreetly but with sure precision. Wraps around its target.


Its tactics employed include lies about self, dark and gloomy vision and the ever debasing thoughts flavored with failure and wrapped in 'what's the use' packaging.


It makes its victims ashamed to acknowledge that they are caught in its

grips, struggling in most cases to break free and often times never

successful in this endeavor.


It does not let go easily, holding on, clinging. it can and should be overcome and won however this is, in many instances, easier said than done...

But in Christ there is always hope, always a way out, always healing!

About AOCI

The AOCI exists as a fellowship of Spirit-filled Evangelical and Jewish Clergy for the purpose of: 1) Exalting God 2) Fellowshiping and 3) Divine Networking.

We do NOT advise, nor do we seek, to bring members out of their current denomination or ministerial association. We seek to have a platform to UNITE the Clergy of the world in ways that can benefit not only the Kingdom of God, but also the men and women who faithfully serve their communities, one another, and God.
