Soul Care Ministry

“...promoting wellbeing through soul enrichment and heart healing”

Our SoulCare Ministry aims to promote wellbeing by offering opportunities and resources to people who desire  growth in their relationship with God, others, and self through soul enrichment and heart healing. Our SoulCare Ministry is woven throughout our teaching, worship and fellowship times as a church, but specifically focuses on three main objectives through individual learning, small group connections and access to resources for specific life challenges.  


Individual Learning
SoulCare Ministry aims to provide ongoing Soul Formation Courses designed to build faith, devotional practices, and disciplines based on Christian theology, traditions, and history. Courses include tools, models, and resources that promote greater self awareness and discovery making room for the Holy Spirit to transform our minds, shape our wills, and heal our emotions.
 
Small Group Connections
SoulCare Ministry aims to facilitate, train, and model small group connections that promote a healthy and proactive spiritual life of listening and obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit. Spiritual Direction Triads (groups of three) are designed to be a model of living intentionally and practicing transparency in the presence of other trusted Christ-followers.
 
Tools & Resources
SoulCare Ministry aims to be a trustworthy and prayerful point of contact for people facing tumultuous seasons and circumstances. The Director will offer “Soul Triage” and empathetic support to help guide people toward appropriate tools, resources, and professional help for various life issues.

“People who have never developed a deep personal knowing of God will be limited in the depth of their personal knowing of themselves. Failing to know God, they will be unable to know themselves, as God is the only context in which their being makes sense. Similarly, people who are afraid to look deeply at themselves will of course be equally afraid to look deeply at God. For such persons, ideas about God provide a substitute for direct experience of God. Knowing God and knowing self are therefore interdependent. Neither can proceed very far without the other. Paradoxically, we come to know God best not by looking at God exclusively, but by looking at God and then looking at ourselves-then looking at God, and then again looking at ourselves. This is also the way we best come to know our selves. Both God and self are mostly fully known in relationship to each other.”
— David G. Benner. The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery

“The longer I live, the more of my own darkness I see. It doesn’t mean I’m growing worse, but I’m seeing more. I’m grateful to be seeing myself in the context of God’s accepting, healing love.”
— By Richard Rohr (Author/Speaker)
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
— Ephesians 4:22-24 NIV
