What is Care Ministry?
City Point’s Care Ministry equips laypeople to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulty in their lives. The Care Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Care Minister remain private.

Who Are Care Ministers?
A Care Minister is a congregation member who has been carefully selected to serve in this role because of his or her’s caregiving gifts. Each Care Minister receives 50 hours of special training in providing high-quality, distinctively Christian care. They’re someone who will meet faithfully with you on a regular basis, providing care as long as there is a need. Care Ministers are not counselors, but are a caring Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, and encourages.
