Helping churches maximize the impact of their caring efforts
We provide the resources, training, and support that churches need to:
- Establish a caring ministry or a care team.
- Expand or reenergize an existing caring ministry.
- Embrace a biblically-based discipling model of care.
- Equip and empower people within your congregation to care in ways that align with Scripture.
- Eliminate the awkwardness that seems inherent to caring.
- Establish a culture that is more relational and less programmatic.
TESTIMONIAL: For years we 'assumed' we were doing a good job of caring for people. Your ministry has opened our eyes and exposed us to a whole new world. Realizing the biblical-basis and the core principles of caring changes everything. Your training guides and tools for ministry leaders are excellent!
If we love, we care; it is the heartbeat of the Christian faith. We provide the biblical framework and resources churches need to engage and equip people to care for one another in ways that advance the mission of the church, and make a Kingdom difference.
Despite good intentions, Christians regularly do and say things that are inept and come across as insensitive. Without fundamental training and an understanding of core biblical principles, attempts to care are sure to remain awkward and uncomfortable.
TESTIMONIAL: Thanks for all you do. I LOVE the training materials. You have challenged our paradigms on many fronts, and I am so thankful to be part of this ministry. We will be rolling out the caring ministry to our church in full this fall (2017).
Fostering spiritual growth & cultivating deeper relationships
Care may be the ultimate ministry opportunity.
Knowing that it is easier to trust God in the calm than in the midst of the storm, it's no wonder the impact of ministry is often greatest when people are facing difficult life circumstances and challenges. Storms (aka, trials of many kinds) are significant as it is during times of trouble that people naturally cry out to God, examine their lives, question their beliefs, and are open and eager to experience the love of Christ. Moreover, storms are frequently what spark people's faith, reveal the extent of our rootedness, and establish our need for Jesus.
We encourage Christians to think about care as discipling at times when the conditions are optimal for growth!
We provide the training, tools, and support churches need to advance a biblically-based discipling model of care that is grounded in Scripture. Don't waste precious time and resources diverting staff and trying to reinvent the wheel. We provide the resources your church needs so you can focus on: "Equipping his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." - Ephesians 4:12-13
