Do you sense a call to go deeper? Is God nudging you to be more intimate with Him? Are you called to be a spiritual leader in the area of Spiritual Formation, Spiritual Direction, or Soul Care Leadership? Is God drawing you to guide others in the area of spiritual maturation?
Does your purpose involve nurturing the souls of others? If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions, Peacock Soul Care is for you.
Spiritual Direction is rich. It is an ancient form of care that contributes to the spiritual formation of individuals and addresses the whole being. Spiritual direction is regular guidance offered to help another to ‘grow up’ into Christ (Ephesians 4:14-16). Spiritual direction is central to discipleship as charged by Jesus
Spiritual Formation is foundational. It encourages individuals to experience a deeper relationship with God. Spiritual formation is the continuing response to the reality of God’s grace shaping us into the likeness of Jesus Christ, which is the image of God, through the work of the Spirit (Genesis 1:27).
Soul Care Leadership
Soul Care Leadership is practical. Soul care is the continuing renewal of various aspects of an individual’s being throughout each season of their life. Soul Care Leadership provides participants with the tools and practices to self-reflect, mature, and enhance the well-being of souls within their span of influence
(Acts 20:28, NLT). Ultimately, the result is to optimize personal effectiveness.
