Loving Wayward Souls

What do you do when someone you love leaves? And how do you pursue someone who has hurt you, who has sinned against you?

Whether you are dealing with an unfaithful marriage partner, a rebellious child, or a wayward friend, the counsel you offer needs to be pursued in a gospel-rooted approach, grounded in truth and practiced in the midst of Christian community.

While each situation is unique, our stories often deal with common themes of shame, guilt, confusion, uncertainty, and struggle.   You will learn how to practice “redemptive release” through confrontation and discipline as well as how to forgive the person who has hurt you through a process of reconciliation. You will also be equipped to help others struggle to find their way in dealing with their own wayward souls and reminded of the hope of the gospel and the necessity of depending upon the Holy Spirit through prayer for yourself and those whom you are counseling.


Come join us and learn about the spiritual dynamics at work in the heart of the prodigal and how you as a family member, spouse, friend, or church leader can best relate to them in love.
