Journey offers Pastoral Care in three different areas:
- Spiritual Care (one-on-one)
- Care & Support Groups
- Equipping yourself and helping others
Spiritual Care (NotAlone Ministry) is a one-on-one conversation where life’s challenging issues can be addressed. It provides biblically-based guidance in a safe and caring environment for the purpose of healing, restoration, and living lives honoring to God. We want you to know you are Not Alone. Topics of discussion may include: marriage, parenting, communication, healthy relationships, anger, depression, abuse, fear, grief, addictions and more. There is no cost to receive Spiritual Care. We are available to meet with you for one session or on a regular basis for up to 18 months as needed. For more information please email NotAlone@journeycom.org or call 619.464.4544 x226 and indicate a request for Spiritual Care.
Journey does not provide professional counseling, however we are happy to provide you with referrals.
Care Groups help you find, trust and follow God through the challenges of life while connecting with others for encouragement and support. You are Not Alone in your struggle. Care groups provide a safe place for you to connect with God and others who are facing similar life issues. We are here to help.
