Our Goal: Our goal in providing biblical soul care is to help you meet the challenges of life in a way that will please and honor the Lord Jesus Christ and allow you to fully enjoy His love for you and His plans for your life.
Biblical Basis: We believe that the Bible provides guidance and instruction for faith and life (Romans 15:3-4 and 2 Peter 1:3) and we believe Christ desires to be the Shepherd and Overseer of your soul (1 Peter 2:25). Therefore, our soul care efforts are based solely on scriptural principles rather than those of secular psychology or psychiatry.
Not Professional Advice: As soul care providers, we do not claim to give the same kind of professional advice and services that could be purchased from a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. Our discipleship is meant to provide you a biblical basis for making your own decisions based on principles that we see revealed in the Scriptures. If you need or desire professional counsel from a psychologist or psychiatrist you should seek such. Our Director of Biblical Soul Care will be happy to cooperate with such counselors and help you to consider their counsel in the light of relevant biblical principles. By signing this “Consent to Biblical Soul Care” you agree to hold the 15:20 Coalition Inc. and any of its church associations harmless in any and all matters associated with the discipleship you receive from your soul care provider.
Confidentiality: Confidentiality is an important aspect of the soul care process, and we will carefully guard the information you entrust to us. There are four situations when it may be necessary to share certain information about your involvement with biblical soul care: (1) When your soul care provider is uncertain of how to address a particular problem and needs to seek advice from the Director of Biblical Soul Care or another soul care provider or pastor; (2) It is very helpful that each counselee’s pastor be informed about the plan for your discipleship so they are aware of and can pray for you very specifically; (3) When there is a clear indication that someone may be harmed unless others intervene; or (4) When a person persistently refuses to renounce a particular sin and it becomes necessary to inform the leadership in your church to encourage repentance and reconciliation (see Proverbs 15:22; 24:11; Matthew 18:15-20). Please be assured that our soul care providers prefer not to disclose personal information to others, and we will make every effort to help you find ways to resolve a problem as privately as possible.
Resolution of Conflicts: On rare occasions a conflict may arise between a soul care provider and you as the counselee. By signing this “Consent to Biblical Soul Care” you agree that all such conflicts will be resolved in a biblical manner, in accordance with Matthew 18:15-20 and the authority of scripture and your local church.
Donations: We offer biblical soul care on a donation basis to The 15:20 Coalition. Your gifts go towards equipping and sending indigenous national church leaders and missionaries, primarily from Albania, to take the gospel to people groups around the world who have not ever heard the good news about Jesus Christ. The suggested donation is $80 for a two hour session. If this is something you cannot afford please let us know and we can discuss other options.
Consent: Having clarified the principles and policies of the Biblical Soul Care ministry, we welcome the opportunity to minister to you in the name of Christ and to be used by Him as He helps you to grow in spiritual maturity and prepares you for usefulness in His body. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please talk with our Director of Biblical Soul Care, Steve Freeburne (859-630-0280).
