We believe prayer is the most critical foundation for God’s work here. “Prayer Warriors” who feel called to this work are helping us on the “front lines” of battle, believing Him for miracles that will advance His Kingdom in our region.
2. COMFORT CARE GIVERS
Those who have received God’s comfort and feel called to “pass it on” to others in need are loving people through practical, hands-on, service… helping people experience “Jesus with skin on”, one heart at a time.
3. SPIRITUAL MENTORS
Seasoned, mature Christians who feel called to help others discover, deepen, develop and share their faith are helping us “make disciples”, in fulfillment of the Great Commission.
WHAT WE DON’T DO
We do not provide mental health counseling. We seek to be sensitive to a person’s need for licensed, professional help… and provide referrals to appropriate resources, as we are able. We do not violate confidentiality. We know it is vital that we earn the trust of those who are hurting, and we recognize the important of guarding whatever information they have entrusted to us in their vulnerability. We do not force our faith on people. We seek to meet and love people where they are, and to be in step with the Holy Spirit. We do pray for sensitivity, discernment and boldness… that we may willingly share the love, grace and truth of Jesus Christ whenever, wherever and however He directs.
WHAT WE DO
We come alongside those who are in need and want our help… seeking to “love our neighbor” and to use our gifts and talents provide comfort, as we are able. We treat everyone with respect and dignity, regardless of their background, circumstances or spiritual condition… knowing that we are all are created in the image of God. We mobilize practical, “hands on” help, as needed, for those we serve. We find and tap internal and/or external community resources, as appropriate, to provide help in many diverse areas. We keep all client information confidential…sharing only what clients give us permission to share in order to secure additional help for them. In every personal encounter, we look for clues to the person’s spiritual condition, and opportunities to initiate a “spiritual conversation” that could begin to help them turn toward God. We invest in people… meeting each person where they are spiritually and, as the Holy Spirit opens the door, sharing God’s truth with gentleness and respect. We share the Gospel with everyone who is open (using Navigators” Bridge Illustration and any other available means” and lead individuals to Christ when they are ready. We recruit volunteers and develop a network of Intercessors, Care Givers and Spiritual Mentors and love, train, encourage and support them as needed. We interview and create a network of resources to meet client needs, including churches, non-profit organizations and other community resources.
Job Objective: To help create and sustain a business and spiritual climate throughout Tri-County’s sphere of influence that will maximize eternal fruit to the glory of God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
** Our Intercessors are “ordinary” people-Tri County customers, employees, family and friends-through whom God is doing extraordinary things.
** “Prayer Warriors” who feel called to this work are helping us on the “front lines” of battle, believing Him for miracles that will advance His Kingdom in our region.
** Through monthly written updates, regular phone calls and face-to-face meetings, we celebrate together God’s amazing – at times, miraculous – answers to our united prayers and share the latest new prayer requests.
**Every life has difficulties… some greater than others. The loss of a loved one who used to handle everything, the loneliness of living far from family, the uncertainty (or certainty) of a medical diagnosis, the hurt of strained relationships, and so much more.
**Sometimes people just need a friendly face… someone to listen and share the load. They may need more professional help, but they don’t know where to turn. Or they may be seeking answers or reassurance about deeper issues: “Is there a God? Does He really care? How can I know for sure?” That’s where our Comfort Care Givers come in. Because we have long-term relationships with our customers, they often tell us when “life” beyond their air conditioning has made them uncomfortable.
**Our Comfort Care Givers are not professional counselors…they are caring, compassionate people who, having received God’s comfort, have been called and equipped by God to “pass it on” to others.
**In the spirit of “loving their neighbor,” they simply offer friendship – through telephone reassurance, personal visits, simple errands and/or “acts of kindness” … plus, if necessary, referral services to community agencies, organizations and individuals who can provide licensed professional help and/or other resources.
**While we also support the foreign mission field, we know the mission field to which He refers is right here in our own backyard.
**As Christ’s Ambassadors and ministers of reconciliation, His people are still commanded to go out and ” make disciples” of all nations.
