FAQ’s

  • How do you describe yourself? A close friend and confidant refers to our director Roy Jackson as, “A pastor without a church.” When he says this he means a pastor without a church building. This definition may make the most since, and gives the best visual description. Traditionally, pastoral care is provided by the continually pouring into the daily lives and well being of the people in a church. The pastor is doing it as a calling and he does it with all of the gifts, talents, experiences and knowledge that they have. It is what our director does. Our work is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, education, training and life experience. It is our prayer that you will see Jesus revealed in your life. We are here to help. Jesus lived for His church and we do the same.
  • Do you provide personal or family financial advice? Yes, we will sit down with you to look at your income and outgo. We will show you and guide you through the process of setting up a simple budget. Depending on your situation, we generally like to get you set up, at least for the first year, on a weekly and/or a daily budget.  We can offer monitoring and accountability to the budget if need be until you have developed the discipline to run it on you own. If you have complex tax issues, we will refer you to an accountant or CPA.
