Soul Care Ministries
A partner with the International Association of Ministers and Ministries -


"Soul care is essentially learning to live our life with God. Soul care is not about us doing; it’s about what God is doing. We simply place ourselves in a position for God to care for us, attend to our souls, and let his agenda supersede ours. It is a space where we allow the Lover of our souls have his way — to tend, care, nurture, correct and guide – to renew our inner beings and fill us to overflowing with his love and care."  - Nathan Foster of

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases:  

his mercies never come to an end;

they are new every morning;  great is your faithfulness!

Lamentations 3:22-23

​Philosophy and Approach to Ministry

Life and Wholeness is committed to making known the mystery of the image of God within each person, Christ Jesus, our hope of glory. It is him whom we proclaim so that we may present everyone mature in Christ. (Colossians 1:15-28)

The ministry of reconciliation (or prayer ministry) is not professional counseling, but rather a ministry led by the desire to see the light of Christ come into the dark places within hurting individuals. I approach prayer ministry as both an art and the application of various tools for unlocking the God-given potential within each person. I endeavor to minister to the whole person – spirit, soul, and body.

Good News!

"God, very God, became a man

and walks the paths of life searching for us

so that we might find him.

When we find him and follow him,

we discover he's always been with us

in all the joys and sorrows, brokenness and trauma, shame and fear.

As we continue to follow,

he restores the broken places

and makes us whole."

- Carl Shirley
