This interview introduces two churches and their care programs. Gembola speaks to Jonathan Holmes at Parkside Church in Solon, Ohio and Karen Shannon at Liquid Church in Somerville, New Jersey. Their conversation touches on how to start and maintain care ministries, including training, screening, and providing ongoing care and oversight for volunteers. Other topics include navigating confidentiality, counseling stigma, and church leadership. This is a good read for any church interested in establishing an organized plan for one-another care.
