SoulCare Foundations I: The Basic Model

This course is designed to help you enter people’s interior lives at a meaningful level and make a lasting difference as they deal with life’s struggles and crises. Some people call this type of help “counseling.” Others call this help “pastoring.” And perhaps others think of this kind of involvement as what one friend does for another friend. Larry Crabb uses the word SoulCare, with its focus on the inner life, where we become who we were intended and long to be.

  1. Understand the basic model of SoulCare.
  2. Resist temptation to keep relationships shallow.
  3. Move into somebody’s life (with the wisdom that knows how the soul works) in meaningful, deep, soul-connecting kinds of ways.
