We are not trained, professional counselors, but we love and care for people. Pastoral care is composed of three ingredients: listening, biblical insight and prayer.
We are good listeners. Without judgment, we will take time to listen to what you're going through. Having a listening ear means you have someone who will allow you to process the key issues of a given situation and how you may move forward.
We offer biblical insight. We won't make your life decisions for you. God will speak to you for that. But we will give you biblical principles to consider in making your decision.
We will pray with you. There is nothing more powerful than prayer to align our obedience to God's will and His resources.
