In this space, those struggling with addictions and those in recovery can fellowship, encourage, support, and pray one another. This is a general space, if those want to create a space focused on a particular addiction, then they are encouraged to do so.

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, teens build strong relationships with other teens. They participate in fun events, service opportunities in their own communities, and they learn more about what God is doing inside them and in the world.

This is a twenty-something online fellowship (mostly!) where we our share adventures of how are living in the world for Christ. We upload media, blog, and talk about outlanding things we are doing. We might arrange meetups around the world for particular adventures - -be it outdoors or urban.

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.
