What sets your church apart as a caring Christian community?
While everybody cares, people naturally care as the world cares, not as Jesus commands. Think about it. If believers and church leaders naturally loved God and loved people, there would be no need for the Great Commandment. Why? Because people don’t need to be commanded to do what comes naturally. (SEE Luke 6:46, John 14:21)
We provide the training materials and support churches need to equip and embolden people within their congregation to love and care about others in ways that closely align with Scriptures and the mission of the Church.
TESTIMONIAL: For years, we assumed we were doing a good job of loving and caring for people. You have opened our eyes and exposed us to a whole new world. Your training guides and tools for ministry leaders are excellent! Realizing the biblical-basis and core principles of caring changes everything.
If we love, we care about people
Jesus said, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” - John 13:34-35
TESTIMONIAL: Your training guides are so practical, so biblical, and so understandable. We love the way the material is organized, the strong biblical approach, and the continual emphasis on discipleship.
There's care that's expected and that which is commanded
The natural human tendency is to focus on people’s circumstances, show kindness, seek solutions, give unsolicited advice, and care in ways that make us feel good about helping.
However, if we love as Jesus loved, we concern ourselves with the heart and soul of people, show compassion, and express care in ways that forge deeper relationships and foster spiritual growth.
TESTIMONIAL: “While I always thought I was a caring person, I now realize that I have been doing more to satisfy my own curiosity than to show compassion to others. I was deceived into thinking that being friendly was caring. It’s not – it’s superficial and inconsiderate. You have helped us grasp core Biblical principles and caring concepts. We are grateful for your support, and your training is amazing!
Caring is quite possibly the ultimate discipling opportunity
Despite the popularity of an issue-oriented and programmatic approach to caring ministry, the Bible presents a model of care that is entirely different. Care Ministry provides the framework and training churches need to:
- Establish or expand and repurpose their care ministry
- Embrace a biblically-based discipling model of care
- Equip church leaders, care teams and others to care well
- Enact a culture that is more relational and less programmatic

TESTIMONIAL: Having personally suffered a significant loss, I could write a book on all things people do and say that are more hurtful than helpful! Caring is about loving one another, not simply following lists of things "to do" and what not to say. Whether a pastor, church leader, or member of a congregation, EVERY Christian really needs to know and understand the biblical teachings and embrace the core biblical principles included in your Faith Fundamentals training series!
