HolistiCare (a.k.a. Holistic Care & Concern) is a social concern arm of the Singapore Baptist Convention that mainly focuses on three fronts: Humanitarian Response, Community Welfare, and Members’ Care and Counsel.
1. Humanitarian (Response)
This is a trans-border acts of Christian service.
Increasingly, we are encountering disasters all over the world. Fires, Famines, Droughts, Diseases, to name a few, are the headlines of newsprints and newsreels. Believers are praying more than ever before. However, we can, if God willing, go beyond the intangibles of prayer, to the tangible acts of love and benevolence.
HolistiCare will be a channel whereby financial resources will be gathered and remitted to the disaster-hit areas, beyond the shores of Singapore.
2. Community (Welfare)
This is for the local community needs in Singapore.
While Singapore is a first-world nation, there are still pockets of people in our midst who are severely under-resourced. The Singapore Government has been at the forefront of providing help, both financial, as well as in kind. Our Baptist Family, as part of the bigger church community in Singapore, can step up and be a contributor to better the lives of those who are under-resourced, and in need of a helping hand (not hand-out).
HolistiCare will be the channel for representing the interests and actions of the member churches to meet the challenges of the poverty-stricken community.
This is the ministry of care and counsel for the members churches under the Singapore Baptist Convention.
We are available to partner the Baptist churches, through the provision of Christian care and counsel. The people serving in the churches, such as pastors, ministry workers, and even volunteers can access our services of caring, and of counseling. We have a team of pastors, counselors, and ministry workers who can identify and understand the challenges of full-time ministry in today’s churches.
HolistiCare’s approach is one of a fellow-pilgrim, walking alongside the people who are in need of a listening ear, a wise counsel, or simply a sharing of experiences.
We are always on the look-out for more volunteers! If you are keen to learn more about how you can be involved with HolistiCare, please contact us through the following channels:
