How do you move your church from a "pastoral care" model, where the prayer and visitation ministry is handled by staff clergy, to a model of "congregational care" where this task is lovingly shared with committed and willing lay volunteers? It is a process that takes a willing pastor and open-minded congregation.
One of the first hurdles to overcome is that of organization. That is where programs like iPrayerworks can help.
iPrayerworks is a tool that was designed specifically to help local churches manage prayer lists as well as hospital and homebound visitation...all in one place. With iPrayerworks, the role of pastoral care can be confidently transferred from senior leadership to other church staff and trusted members. The congregational care needs of the church can be managed and accessed from anywhere there is a web browser and internet connection.
