Biblical care training is vital.
While everyone cares, people naturally care as the world cares, NOT as Jesus commands. Think about it. If believers 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.
Could it be most believers genuinely want to care; they just don't know how?
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.
What sets your church apart as a caring Christian community?
Based on how churches have traditionally modeled caring, care is often synonymous with a limited set of concerns and a specific set of responses (e.g., support groups, semester-style classes, pastor visits, benevolence - meals/money).
Despite the popularity of an issue-oriented, pastor-centric, and programmatic model of care, the Bible stipulates an approach to caring that is entirely different.
"If we love, we care. If we care, we disciple." - Charles Puchta
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 training series!
Caring is quite possibly the ultimate discipling opportunity
Though often overlooked, there are stories, passages, and parables throughout the Bible that reveal and detail what care entails and loves requires.
The Compassion Care training series written and produced by Charles Puchta delves into and unpacks the Scriptures. Each lesson originates from the Bible, explores Bible passages, highlights a core biblical principle, and provides examples to help participants grasp and apply the teachings.
The chart below references human tendencies and the wisdom imparted in the lessons.
Lesson #1 prompts people to Reimagine care based on a biblical narrative.
Lessons #2-4 inspire people to Reframe care according to a theological framework.
Lessons #5-7 hearten people to Realize caring competencies set forth in Scripture.
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. You have helped us grasp core Biblical principles and caring concepts. We are grateful for your support, and your training is amazing!
