Join Us
Join us for our O, Church Arise Conference
as we seek to help the church reclaim a culture of care.
We care for souls because God gave the church as His community of care,
His Word as our guide for care, and His Spirit as the empowerment of our care. Our vision of care should be shaped by what God has revealed to us in His Word and the person of Christ, not by what our therapeutic culture claims to be legitimate care for struggling people. We need not fear our responsibility or neglect our calling. Rather, we pursue this eternally valuable act of being the church. And as we do, we become a culture of care. Join us October 2021 as we explore the important task of soul care in the church.
