Welcome to CarePoint!

Is your church a "care point" for the hurting?

Every Sunday hurting people in your congregation collapse onto the church pews beat up by life. Too often they leave with their wounds not bound or, worse, not noticed.

On any given Sunday hurting people in your community pass by your church on their way to ... anywhere.

Why don't they come in? Would it make a difference if they saw your church as a place where broken hearts were healed and broken lives were repaired, where people were real and love was not just a cliché that maybe never really meant anything at all?

So, for instance, when was the last time you passed a church with a sign like this out front?

Helping make your church a care point for the hurting!

We can help! CarePoint is an explicitly Christian ministry that provides turn-key ministry resources to help churches answer the call to care through supportive care groups. Our mission is to provide Christ-centered, Bible-based training and ministry resources that equip care group ministers with everything they need to start and shepherd a care group on a specific life-challenges.

We provide training programs to make sure the laypersons in your church's care ministry are equipped to lead care groups, manage crises, and help people!

We provide turn-key ministry resources with a growing list of ministry kits that provide you with everything you need to start and run a ministry for people facing a life challenge such as single parenting, sexual impurity, and resources on other "big" issues.

The premise is simple: Jesus concluded his parable about the Good Samaritan who was a neighbor to the half-dead traveler he came across on the road to Jerusalem with the charge: “You go, then, and do the same” (Luke 10:37, GNB).

A Training Program for Care Group Leaders!

We at CarePoint can help you offer encouraging small groups (based on the truth of God's word and the resources of our faith) to bind up the wounds of believers and set captives free.

The first step is to make sure that your small group leaders are properly equipped to lead care goups, which have special challenges not faced in other types of small groups (such as Bible study, social, and discipleship groups).

Our Shepherding Care Groups: A Comprehensive Training & Certification Program for Christian Care Group Facilitators was designed to equip care group leaders to lead effective, life-changing care groups.

What is it and what does it do?

The Shepherding Care Groups taining program teaches laypersons in the congregation to lead care groups, which are supportive small groups for people suffering from a common issue such as depression, anxiety, anger, grief, guilt and shame, etc.

The program covers everything from helping a person assess his or her caregiving gifts for serving in care ministry...

  • to determining the need in the congregation and larger community for a group on a particular topic...
  • to scheduling a time and place for the group...
  • to selecting an appropriate curriculum for the group to work through...
  • to managing crisis situations and resolving conflict...
  • to birthing new groups and recruiting new care group leaders.

The program also presents the C-A-R-E model of helping, which breaks the people-helping process into four main parts: Contact - Attending - Responding - Encouraging.
