Soul Care & Counseling Ministry

MPCC’s Soul Care Ministry provides an oasis of hope for times of weariness and brokenness on your journey. We offer a variety of helping relationships and healing communities to help you acquire and display the character of Christ in the midst of the difficulties, problems, or pain in which you find yourself. 

Discover What’s Right For You

Seeking A Healing Community?

At the heart of MPCC’s Soul Care Ministry is the belief that healing occurs best in a community of a few trusted and caring for others. All of the Soul Care Ministry’s healing communities are designed to be safe and supportive environments where you can gain new insight and where you are enabled to confront life’s challenges from a Biblical perspective so that you can grow and heal.

Healing Communities 

Seeking A Helping Relationship?

When we are in a season of struggling or suffering, it is not unusual to isolate ourselves from others. However, like the wounded man in the Biblical story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37), we long for someone to show us the way or to come alongside us, dress our wounds, and give us the generous gift of care. MPCC’s Soul Care Ministry team desires to partner with you on your healing journey.
