The Pastors of Harvest Church are committed to making sure that each of our members receives the care they need for joy, hope, and healing in Christ.
Our desire is to:
- Create a culture of care within the Church that is Christ-centered, Biblically-based, and Clinically-informed.
- Connect members with specific needs to skilled and trusted counselors, whether inside the church or as a referral to a non-member counselor in the area.
Our primary aim is to equip and encourage all members to counsel one another with the Word of God (Rom. 15:14, Eph. 4:12, 1 Cor. 12:7), by the Spirit of God (Eph. 3:16-21, Col. 1:9,), for the glory of God (Phil 1:11, 1 Cor 10:31) so that our joy in God can continue to grow (Phil. 1:25, Ps 19:7-8).
However, we recognize even though we want to care for each other, there are also times when more specialized care is needed. Some issues that you may need help with are depression, anxiety, marriage conflict, loneliness, suffering, addiction, hurt, or bitterness.
We would be glad to help you take the next steps to find Christ-centered healing, hope, and joy, whether that be from a counselor inside our church or from a trusted counselor in the area.
Financial assistance is available to those in need.
If you are in need of counseling or would like to serve in our counseling ministry, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Caring Well Team
Churches should be a refuge for those who have experienced abuse, but this has often not been the case. As a church and a pastoral team, we do not want to take a back seat in this matter, but with God’s help, we want to take steps to be a church that cares well for those who have been abused and take whatever steps we can to prevent it.
The Caring Well team has been assembled so that we can learn about abuse, take steps to prevent abuse, and respond to incidents of abuse. We will be meeting together for about 2 hours every other week. Over the course of the year, we will spend about half of our time learning about abuse, and a third of our time will be spent learning how the church should protect, respond and care for the abused. In the last third, we will be making recommendations for policies, procedures, and practices for our church.
