If you have been blessed by this ministry, we encourage you to actively spread the word and let your friends know about Person to Person. We have a voracious appetite for friends and always have room for more.
The Lord has willed that we love one another and encourage one another and attend to one another’s needs. We at PtP really appreciate the value of helping hands and supporting shoulders and tarrying knees. We are absolutely thrilled every time a friend steps forward to get involved with the ministry. This only increases our joy in ministering to those who need our help.
So if you share our vision and would like to join hands with us to equip, enrich and empower Christians in the body of Christ to claim the abundant life that the Lord promised, here are a few ways you could choose to get involved with the ministry –
This is a ministry that has been birthed in prayer and moves in prayer. God has always shown himself faithful and has come through for us every time! Still, we covet more and more of this blessing so the ministry is powerfully hedged in by God’s protection, boldly empowered by His Holy Spirit and bountifully provided for, by His grace. Remember us in your daily prayers.
One of the reasons our friends love us is because they can send over their own friends to us. Our counsellors at PtP have never gone back in being available to the Holy Spirit to minister to friends, friends of friends and complete strangers alike.
In addition to that, we have trained thousands of Christians from hundreds of churches and organisations, to be competent and confident counsellors and people helpers.
This has been our vision and the purposeful mission that gets us out of bed each morning. So if you know someone who has a burden to help people, let them know about our training programs in Christian counselling.
Our publications such as the self-help booklets, ‘Light for Living Series’ are helpful for personal counselling and guidance, especially for youth and young adults. The booklets will be very helpful for those who do not or cannot receive personal counselling and guidance for various reasons.
The booklets not only serve as good self-help tool but they are also a good gift for someone you care about. They are available for a small gift offering.
Our Distance learning courses are designed to equip lay counsellors who prefer the flexibility of learning at their own pace or place. The course can also be done in groups for better learning. Encourage your friends to sign up for a distance program.
