Soul Care is a ministry of the Word of God...

  • That takes place within Christian community and fellowship, including everyday conversations, biblical counselling, Soul Care groups, classes, seminars, and conferences (Hebrews 3:13, Acts 20:20)
  • That points to the glory of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18)
  • That pursues heart change through the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18)
  • That emphasizes the necessity of abiding in Christ (John 15:1-12)
  • That speaks the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15)
  • That promotes a lifestyle of repentance and faith (2 Corinthians 7:10, Hebrews 11:6)
  • That exists to equip the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:12) so that the church grows itself up in love (Ephesians 4:16), for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Heart Resurgence - Starting February 2022

What do you live for?
Why do you get out of bed every morning?
What gives you hope?

Is it things like success, reputation, comfort, safety, approval of others?

There is something that can give you hope over and above all of these things. It’s a relationship with the living God. And right now God is saying, I want to take you somewhere great, conform you into the image of Christ, and spend eternity with you!

Don’t get sidetracked by hopes that are miserable in comparison. We need to put our gaze on God and what He is doing in us!

Do not be satisfied where you are at, sign up for Heart Resurgence today!

Heart Resurgence gets to the heart, it’s all about the gospel. A new class begins February 2022 for nine weeks.

What Did You Expect?

Somehow, someway, every marriage becomes a struggle.

Everyone’s marriage morphs into something they didn’t intend it to be. At some point you need something sturdier than romance. You need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. You need changed expectations, you need radical commitments, and, most importantly, you need grace.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Soul Care Group?

A Soul Care group is…

  • A group made up of three to five participants and two group leaders (who are biblical counsellors). 
  • A group that meets weekly for approximately four months
  • A group that focuses primarily on four things: praying for one another, sharing openly with one another, mutual accountability and encouragement, as well as walking through a 16-week Bible-based curriculum that focuses on hope, abiding, sin, the gospel, suffering, lament, repentance, faith, the fear of the Lord, humility, contentment, peace, love, joy, gratitude, and finishing with more hope! 
  • A group where each participant is not only attending the weekly group, but is also attending bi-weekly biblical counselling sessions with one of their group leaders (who is a biblical counsellor), and an advocate
  • A group where participants are benefitting from receiving fellowship, biblical teaching, accountability, and encouragement within a weekly group setting - as well as benefiting from the personal care and the depth of ministry that is found in bi-weekly counselling sessions with advocacy.
  • A group where God’s people are being increasingly equipped and encouraged to engage in a daily prayerful pursuit of abiding, repentance, and walking by faith, for their joy in God, for the joy of others in God, and for the glory of God.

Please note that participation in Soul Care Groups is by referral only. If you would like to meet with a counsellor and discuss whether a Soup Care Group is a good next step for you please Request a Meeting.
