What is a Church Assistance Program (CAP)?
The Church Assistance Program is a contracted service of Soulutions for Living, LLC, brings confidential, professional, Christian counseling, coaching and education resources to the local church. The program assist the church or ministry Pastoral Counseling department in encouraging members to deal with the stresses of personal, family, work, or spiritually related problems as early as possible and to seek competent help in times of crisis. We provide initial assessments, referral recommendations and on-going counseling and coaching. Our coaches provide telephone and face-to-face sessions that offer your members avenues to get help with a wide variety of concerns and are a valuable addition to a church's pastoral care while maintaining confidentiality.
Why should a church have a Church Assistance Program?
Due to the demand that is placed on Pastor's and ministry heads today, we have found that ministries and churches that offer their members/congregants a Church Assistance Program, send two important messages. The first is admitting that Christians do have emotional struggles and problems. The second is recognizing the importance of using appropriate resources to deal with those issues. The body of Christ is a healing, caring, loving, and therapeutic community, but there are limits to what the church can do. Some people hesitate to confide in a fellow member or pastor and many situations are beyond the clinical expertise of church leadership. When churches add confidential, professional, Christian counseling and coaching to their resources, they enhance their therapeutic potential.
Soulutions For Living Church Assistance Program offers professionally trained “Christian” counselors and coaches whose values and theological perspectives are consistent with Christian beliefs and practices. Church members need encouragement to use their healing resources-other members, pastors, Christian counselors and Coaches. Church leaders need to be active in making those resources available. The Church Assistance Program helps meet those needs
