Soul Care helps you live from a healthy soul and wisely lead others towards authentic transformation.
In 1998, Mindy Caliguire launched Soul Care to be a publishing and ministry vision dedicated to helping people restore health to their souls. The growing hunger for authentic Christian spirituality continues, along with a need for practical help in experiencing God. As a result, the vision of Soul Care continued to emerge. Consulting and speaking with groups such as the Willow Creek Association, Renovaré, and the Salvation Army has broadened the Soul Care platform to ministries and churches globally.
So what makes a soul healthy? Quite simply, a soul is healthy to the extent that it experiences a strong connection and receptivity to God. Jesus invites us to a life of deep connection: "If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing" (John 15:5, TNIV). However, connecting this spiritual reality to how we actually live is another matter.
Over the years, Soul Care developed more ways to help you deepen your own spiritual reality, and inspire the same in others. We provide resources, gatherings, and consulting with an aim to:
Foster an authentic life with God
Help organizations lead towards growth of those they serve
Mentor leaders to focusing on re-establishing their spiritual vitality as the primary step towards a lifestyle of sustainable ministry and leadership
Our prayer is that you will find practical wisdom and even some companionship on the journey in this way of life—restoring life and health to your soul, releasing your God-given potential and destiny. Explore practical ways to restore life and vitality to your soul, the "soul" of your team, and the vision of your organization.
