Everyone goes through difficult times in life.
It is important that during these times we understand that we were not made to do it alone and we can lean on others for care and support.
Caring Ministry at North haven matches individuals going through difficult times in life with caring individuals equipped to provide high quality emotional and spiritual support. Most of these caring individuals have been through their own difficult seasons in life and desire to comfort others going through similar seasons.
Some of the needs that may be fitting for a match with a dedicated, caring individual include the following:
Separation or Divorce,
Chronic or Terminal Illness
Loss of a Loved One
Issues related to Aging
Issues related to Parenting
Unemployment or Job-related Stress
Miscarriage or Infertility
Military Families & Deployment

“Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby, fulfill the law of Christ.”
Galatians 6:2, NASB
Is Caring Ministry right for me?
If you are going through a difficult time for any of the reasons listed above or something else, a caring individual would like to be there for you.
How are caring individuals equipped?
Caring individuals have received 50 hours of specialized training developed by Stephen Ministries - a not-for-profit Christian organization that equips churches to train lay Christian caregivers.
Caring individuals at North Haven have a great deal of compassion for others, often as a result of specific spiritual gifts, or having gone through difficult seasons of their own.
How do individuals get matched?
Caring Ministry leaders match individuals requesting care in a highly confidential manner. We do not share the identity of individuals requesting or receiving care.
Once we receive a request for care, we will take some time to meet with you to better understand your situation and prayerfully consider the best match.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4, NASB
