In our Compassion Care eBook we distinguish between secular expressions and care that is distinctly Christian, explain our Ministry framework (see triangle), and more.
What sets your church apart as a caring Christian community?
While everyone cares, people naturally care as the world cares, not as Jesus commands (John 13:34-35).
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. We can help.
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.
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. We provide the resources, training, and support churches need to:
- Establish, expand, or repurpose a caring 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 training series!
Most believers genuinely want to care; they just don’t know how.
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!
