Take a look at our services to find one that is right for you:

Fringe SoulCare Support

Are you burnt out  an in need of soul care for your leadership-weary soul. Maybe you’re tired from a long faith journey and in need of new language, resources, and guidance on your spiritual formation journey. Is your cup empty and you don’t have anything left to give those you are called to serve?

Soul care is all about living from a place of overflow; learning to stop from time to time for conversation, to rest, to read, and to open up to the presence of the Holy Spirit and its guidance, and ultimately its love.

If you are desire to live and lead from a place of overflow, Fringe SoulCare can offer you online support, prayer, and guidance. If you are in need of a more personal experience, you can coordinate a personal SoulCare retreat. If your team is coming out of a busy or heavy season of work and ministry, you can schedule a corporate retreat for the whole group.

Pastoral Counseling

Often life, circumstances, and our choices wound us deeply. Sometime those situations lead us to dark places and we need someone trained to lead us out of the darkness. If you struggle with anger, anxiety depression, or substance abuse you might benefit from meeting with one of our trained pastoral counselors.

Life Coach

Are you trying to lose weight? Are you trying to quit smoking? Do you have educational or career goals you’d like to pursue and are just having a difficult time figuring out how to do it? A Life Coach might be the right mix of encouragement and accountability to help kick start your new habit or be a catalyst towards achieving your goals.

Spiritual Direction

If you are longing for a deeper spiritual life then you might benefit from engaging in Spiritual Direction. Spiritual Direction is the practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their relationship with the divine, or to learn and grow in their own personal faith. The person seeking direction shares stories of his or her encounters of the divine, or how he or she is experiencing spiritual issues. The director listens and asks questions to assist the directee in his or her process of reflection and spiritual growth.


Mentoring is the process of matching mentors (with specific skills and experiences) to individuals who need or want ministry coaching. Our mentor network exists to assist you in strategic ministry consultation to equip you to impact your community, school, and church. The goal of our mentoring programs is to improve the outcomes of your ministry efforts and strategically move towards the fulfillment of the vision and mission of your organization.
