Types of Biblical Soul Care
Counseling, or “Soul Care” is not something that can always be categorized. God has made everyone in wonderfully unique (Ps. 139:14) ways and each being, created in God’s image faces different challenges. NHC desires to shepherd our people as best we can, with the Holy Spirit’s help.
There are no “levels” of counseling, but as each person presents with different care needs, NHC seeks to meet those needs in ways that are encouraging, effective and consistent with the truth of scripture.
