This is a quick excerpt on why we do what we do and why we think the CHURCH is the answer as the body of CHRIST and not psychology. Read below:

“In the next 24 hours, 1,200 Christian marriages in the U.S. will end in divorce. Study after study proves that the children of these divorces will be far more likely to struggle with sexual promiscuity, drug and alcohol abuse, difficulty in school, and subsequent divorce in their own marriages. This family carnage has got to stop, and the key is the local church, God’s “plan A” for equipping and assisting his people to deal with relational difficulties in a fallen world. This new video series (called “Biblical Soul Care for the Local Church”) provides a biblical, gospel-centered, and easily applicable way for churches to build real community and train gifted members to provide soul-care to struggling saints. I highly commend this material and encourage every church to take advantage of this life-changing, marriage-saving, church-building teaching.” – Ken Sande President, Peacemaker Ministries

In a few months, I will be hosting a DVD series at my home or someone’s home where we will be watching this DVD series. If you are interested, stay tuned as we’ll post the dates soon! This will be a deeper study for us.

For more information from the website where I excerpted this quote by Ken Sande, go to:

I recommend this DVD series for your local church. The hope is Christ. He is the answer. Not secular psychology or unbelievers.

-Mark (thankful that the local church is reclaiming the care of souls and that some of those 1,200 marriages have not ended by His grace through TIL)
