Spiritual Companionship and Pastoral Care

Caring guidance in the journey of faith can be a wonderful growth-filled resource for appreciating how deeply we are loved by God and how the Spirit of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ invite us to live and love more generously. If you are facing a critical decision or challenge, it can be a good idea to share that with someone who is ready to listen in faith and help you to trust in God’s presence.
