About The Tracks

The mission expressed in Christian counselling necessitates the compassion of Christ in the building up of communities; care and counselling practices, taking into consideration differences in culture, are being employed to fulfil the commission of a Christian counsellor in discipleship and the specific call to the work of soul and pastoral care. Soul care is the ministry of the Word of God to the whole person that addresses emotional and psychological needs in the field of mental health as well as in the area of crisis response in disaster-relief and trauma-related work in the mission fields.
