Our KINGDOM CARE Report explores the different expressions of care, offers tips, and distinguishes between care that is expected and that which Jesus commands. The information contained in the Report can also help church leaders identify opportunities to educate and equip Christians to care well.
Faith matters! Care well and in ways that make a lasting difference.
Is growth a priority for your church?
CARE may be the ultimate discipling opportunity as difficult circumstances and challenges are often what:
- Prompt caring connections
- Reveal the extent of people's faith
- Spark people's faith
- Lead to deeper relationships
- Foster spiritual growth
- Enhance the sense of community
It's time to give care ministry a fresh look and to take steps to maximize your impact.
Care Ministry is devoted to advocating and advancing a biblically-based, discipling model of care that is grounded in Scripture! Despite being widely adopted, an approach to caring that is primarily programmatic, pastor-centric, and focused on meeting practical needs is inconsistent with Scripture. (SEE Kingdom Care) Though often overlooked, throughout Scripture are parables and passages that reveal core biblical principles and important lessons about what loving and caring for people entails and requires. Don't miss the discipling opportunity!
Care is an aspect of ministry for which there tends to be a lot of misunderstanding.
KINGDOM CARE is a biblical framework (See triangle diagram) that is designed to inform church leaders and differentiate between the different types and levels of care.
How do we help?
We provide the framework, tools, training, and support that churches need to engage and equip people to love and care for one another in ways that advance the mission of the church and make a Kingdom difference. We work with churches that are serious about growing disciples and helping Christians to put their faith into action!
"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:35).
TESTIMONIAL: "Though busy, we were wandering aimlessly and spread way too thin. You provided the structure and support we so desperately needed, and your resources stimulated many long overdue conversations. You helped us become realistic and focused. Thanks to your training and coaching, our caring ministry is enjoying a new level of energy and greater substance."
It's often when the proverbial 'rubber meets the road' that faith becomes real.
Knowing that it's easier to trust God in the calm than in the midst of the storm, it's no wonder that the impact of ministry is greatest when people are facing trials of many kinds. It's at these times when we naturally cry out to God, examine our lives, question our beliefs, and are open and eager to experience the love of Christ. These are also the times when people yearn to experience peace, hope, and love. Don't miss the discipling opportunity!
Don't waste precious resources trying to reinvent the wheel. Instead of diverting staff and spending time and energy on developing your own training and systems, be devoted to: "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).
