Care & Counseling

Care at Sojourn

It is one of our highest honors to care for those who have locked arms with us as church members and for those who consider Sojourn Midtown their home. We want to walk alongside you through the joys and hardships of life. We believe God is the God of all comfort who cares for us through our relationship with Jesus Christ, by God’s Spirit, with God’s people, and according to God’s Word. Below are the various ways to let us know how we can help you.

How can I receive help?

Restore is a ministry that meets in groups and launches multiple times throughout the year. Restore helps God’s people to know and experience God’s love as we connect his story with ours. Our desire is that you would receive comfort from God and grow confident in God.

Restore is for anyone who is overwhelmed by life or wants to grow as a disciple of Jesus. Check out our Restore page for more info or feel free to email us any questions you may have.

Pastoral visits are sometimes necessary depending on the urgency and severity of the struggle you might be experiencing. While our desire for you is to be able to journey with God and others through our Restore support groups, we understand it may be necessary for you to first receive help from a pastor or Care leader.

If you would like to receive some guidance regarding what might be the best next step for you, first read our care overview guide, then fill out our Care Request Form which includes completing the Sojourn Gospel Care Expectations and Consent Form.

Sojourn provides free Pre-Marital Care (PMC) free for Sojourn members or those in the membership process. Sojourn PMC is required for all members, regardless of their wedding location.

After turning in your completed Marriage Preparation Inventories and Informed Consent Form, you will be assigned to one of our trained marriage mentors to take you through PMC. We use our own material, plus a selected book to supplement the PMC sessions. We typically schedule PMC 12 weeks before your wedding—six two-hour sessions, spaced out every other week. The last session, which deals with the marriage bed, is scheduled no more than two weeks prior to the wedding.

Scheduling is sometimes more difficult if a fiance lives in another city or you have unusual work schedules. We ask you to be flexible and accommodating since our mentors have time demands and constraints as well. We also ask you to consider the importance of PMC by making the scheduling a priority.

Once complete, you will need to email your inventories and Informed Consent forms to Mary Barker.

The Lord cares deeply when his loved ones die.

–Psalm 116:115 

If you experience the loss of a loved one, we can help you make arrangements for a funeral or memorial service. If you are in a community group, let your community group leader know about your loss. You can also contact for more next steps on arranging for a pastor to lead a funeral or for hosting a funeral at one of our facilities.
