What is a SoulCare Intensive?
A SoulCare Intensive merges rest, spiritual direction, prayer, instruction in spiritual disciplines, and friendship all under one umbrella in order to help break down barriers keeping someone from true union with God.
Soul care intensives are designed to help people connect the pain and suffering of life to the redemptive power of Jesus Christ. The intentional setting of a soul care intensive allows you to intensely focus on areas of needed guidance for an extended period of time, which often is difficult to accomplish in settings where bimonthly meetings are scheduled. The specific time away is not only conducive for addressing your current needs, but the specific location is also very important. This time and location specifically creates a safe environment where the typical daily pressures and demands are far removed. Thus, the heart of the matter can quickly become addressed without the unneeded burden of distractions.
Each soul care intensive is specifically designed for the individual. There is not formulaic, or programmatic approach to one’s heart. In most cases, your time with one of our trained professionals will be determined by expressed interest, affordability, and overall schedule.
The process of assessing the condition of a leader’s inner unrest involves careful discernment from a skilled professional who will provide spiritual direction and soul care for the purpose of exposing people to the awareness of God’s active presence in their lives. We have many years of experience in working with Christian leaders, both in ministry and the marketplace.
Prior to meeting with our professionals we will ask you to answer of few questions regarding your reasons for seeking a soul care intensive. The questions in this document should be answered with no more than 250 words. It is our intention to provide the best care for your current need, thus, answering the few questions prior to your time with one of our professionals will help us determine what course of action should be taken.
What issues and concerns will be addressed?
The issues and concerns addressed will be customized to your needs. Issues dealing with relational brokenness, sexual addictions, marriage issues, ministry team conflict, ministry burnout or exhaustion, abuse: spiritual, emotional, and physical, and any related issue keeping you from intimacy with God will be attended to. Though some issues may require more attention and care, soul care intensives are beneficial for all of us.
We are all in need of receiving attention and care from one another. Other recipients of a soul care intensive may want to explore issues concerning one’s vocational calling, a desire to live more deeply from the heart, knowing and becoming aware of hearing God’s voice, or a desire for a deepened prayer life. All of the above issues and concerns are recognizable in our own lives, and exploring such brokenness through a soul care intensive will help us discover and embrace both the glory and ruin that exist within us. Consequently, through God’s revelation, we will come to embrace the truth of our brokenness and the even more astounding truth that God calls us his beloved.
