Pastoral Care is to express God’s love, through caring for the needs of people, to build quality relationships, restore individual lives, build healing communities, praying for each person, and growing disciples of Jesus at Southpoint Church of Christ.
The Pastoral Care team encourages existing SouthPoint connect groups to establish trust, loyalty and confidence through long-term relationships and provide guidance and oversight to a group of God’s people. Pastoral Care involves nurturing, discipling, influencing, caring for and guiding people towards ongoing spiritual maturity. Ideally, we want everyone at Southpoint to be connected to and be involved in a Connect group. Small groups are an amazing avenue to provide pastoral care.
