SoulCare

A Biblical Counseling Ministry of Calvary Baptist Church

What is SoulCare?

SoulCare is a counseling ministry of Calvary. In the Bible, counseling is tied closely to discipleship. Sometimes, we all need a more focused discipleship when a crisis or particular struggle arises. Counseling is that focused discipleship. It is personally engaging and scripturally drive encouragement. It involves redemptive truth being spoken from one forgiven sinner to another. It's a safe place where the hope of the Gospel is applied to our struggles and suffering. 

It's ok to ask for help

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW CAN APPOINTMENTS BE MADE?
To request counseling, please fill out a request form (above). Please note that there are different forms for adults and children (under 18). These forms are also available at the kiosk located in the church lobby.
IS THERE A COST TO RECEIVE SOULCARE COUNSELING?  
No. This is a ministry to the Calvary church family, so we currently do not charge for it. However, we do ask that you make a good faith effort at personal growth and engage in the biblical counseling process. 
WHEN DOES COUNSELING TAKE PLACE AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
You and your counselor will agree on a time to meet that fits both of your schedules. Counseling sessions generally are 45 minutes long and typically take place at the church in the Counseling Room or one of the available church offices. When you arrive for your session, you may sit int he church lobby until your counselor comes to get you and take you back to the counseling room. The total number of sessions will fluctuate but most counseling takes a minimum of 12 weeks. 
WHO ARE THE SOULCARE COUNSELORS?
All our counselors are trained and trusted members of Calvary who are able to handle your struggles and hurts with appropriate care and wisdom. They can be trusted to interact with you in confidence, except when biblical wisdom would have them get others involved. They are accountable to Calvary’s leaders and will humbly acknowledge if they think it’s wise for you to find help outside of our ministry, when appropriate.

SoulCare Values

God’s Glory
We understand life to be ultimately about God’s glory and God’s story, and so, we seek to be God-centered in our speech and goals.

Dignity of All People
Because all people have been made in the image of God, we take suffering and sin seriously and encourage people to take personal responsibility for their actions.

Cross-Centered
We understand the Cross and the Gospel to be the ultimate solution for all of life’s challenges. Therefore, rather than point people to a program, theory, or experience, we want to point them to Jesus.

Maturity in Christ
We counsel to help people mature in Christ, rather than help them manage their problems. We have a goal for all people: living out who we are in Jesus.

Heart Focused
We acknowledge the complexity of suffering and sin and seek to uncover, with the Spirit’s help, a person’s heart, their motivations, and how they have been affected by circumstances and relationships.

Bible Driven
We believe God’s Word is authoritative and relevant for all of life’s issues. As such, we believe that everything we do and say in counseling is ultimately rooted in Scripture.
