Christ Caring For People Through People
The FaithCARE Ministry at Faith is about Christ Caring For People Through People. All of us, young and old, experience crisis at some point in our lives. Having someone who cares and loves enough to journey with and care for us can mean so much to help ease the pains, hurts, confusion, stress, and loneliness experienced.
Through a team of specially-trained volunteer CARE Ambassadors, we provide confidential one-to-one emotional support and spiritual care to help people who are hurting or experiencing difficulties and crisis. These include bereavement and grief; chronic or terminal illness; aging and dying; retrenchment, unemployment or job loss; divorce or separation; minor mental health problems, and other life transition issues.
Who is a CARE Ambassador?
A CARE Ambassador is a volunteer who has completed 20 hours of CARE Ambassador training prior to being commissioned. As part of his or her training to be further equipped for the FaithCARE Ministry, a CARE Ambassador also attends 2 hours of continuous education and peer supervision each month.
