Crossroads Care Encouragers

Crossroads Care Encouragers

For Difficult Times

Crossroads Care Encouragers offer care, support and encouragement to people whose lives have been disrupted by divorce, death, grief, loss of a job, retirement changes, health problems, loneliness, discouragement, childbirth, questions about God and faith, and so forth. This ministry trains and supervises lay caregivers to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people in and around our church. Men meet with men and women meet with women.

Crossroads Care Encouragers support people who for the most part have their basic coping skills intact, their thinking in order and their emotions under control. These care receivers need someone to walk beside them, to encourage them, to pray with them and for them, and to bear their burdens with them. The Care Encourager offers his or her support through attentive, active listening and a caring presence.

Intrerested in joining our team? Training is required for anyone who would like to become part of the Crossroads Care Encourager’s Ministry Team. You may participate in the training even if you decide not to join the team. Our hope is that this curriculum will help many give Christian care in a way that is safe and helpful. Thank you for your desire to help “carry the burdens” of one another. Galatians 6:2 says, “Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
