LIFEwalk Ministry

For those who need a little more of Jesus for awhile.

What is the  Ministry?

LIFEwalk is a Bible-based prayer ministry committed to the encouragement of people who are going through a difficult time in their lives. It is not counseling. We believe that God is sufficient for all our needs, but sometimes people need help seeking Jesus in the midst of a personal crisis.

A LIFEwalk Ministry team consists of two LIFEwalk ministers (“helpers”) who will meet and pray regularly with someone in need (a “seeker”) for nine to twelve weeks. Team members practice good listening and prayerful encouragement. LIFEwalk is intended as short-term care, and a bridge to connecting seekers to the church community.

How do I use it?

Completion of the form is your formal request to work with a LIFEwalk Team.Click hereto submit the online Team Request below or you can download a PDF form here. Return it to the church, attention LIFEwalk. Contact Kim Greene, with questions.
You will be contacted to confirm your request, and LIFEwalk Ministry members will prayerfully discern the team. Please note that the discernment process can take up to a few weeks. If you have an urgent need, members of the LIFEwalk Triage Team can meet with you in the interim. After participants have accepted the call to serve, you will be contacted and informed of their names. A team member will contact you to schedule a meeting time and discuss the next steps.

Your LIFEwalk Ministers, and those involved in the discernment process, hold all information in confidence. If we believe your safety is in question, a pastor may be consulted.
