In this space, members confess their sins to one another. Brothers and sisters in the faith, based on their authority in Scripture, offer forgiveness. The one who confessed is encouraged to repent of their ways (turn around) and follow Christ in that area of their life.

Individual Pastoral Care

Here is a site that might be used for someone called to pro-bono pastoral care within the iklesia community. It would not be therapy or specifically licensed counseling. However, it would work like a counseling site in that a person could request an appointment and the pastoral care worker would interact them through a video chat, an audio chat, or a text chat.

In this space, peer counselors will have the opportunity to do deep listening, talking and prayer with those who need help. This is not formal or licensed counseling in any way, simply a way for those who need a help on particular life issues to receive informal support from those within the community.

In this space, we get together to pray for healing of the sick. We have different venues - we can create a live experience with video - where we meet (and see each other) and pray. We can also take prayer requests and respond by intercessory prayer.

In this space, we "visit" those who need pastoral care through online support. Those joining the group will come alongside those who have requested online visits for prayer and encouragement. Where possible local visits will be made, but as this is a global group, we may not always have a local member for a face-to-face visit.

This is a fellowship designed for seniors to get out and enjoy the world with locals and through reflecting their experiences online. Primarily for folks over 55 years old, but others are welcome as well. We will plan trips to senior centers to pray and support them as well as meet needs in our local areas. We may schedule trips to different parts of the world -- both for fun and for ministry purposes as well.
