The mission of the counselling services of Radio Pulpit is to be a companion to our clients in their search for meaning. Our purpose is to minister the Good News to people so that they can experience and grow a living relationship to God. This service is free of charge.
Radio Pulpit has contracted ABCE (The Association for Biblical Counselling and Education) to manage the counselling service and since then it has proved to be a fruitful relationship . Click here for info on ABCE and its counselling courses.
Radio Pulpit renders crisis and/or bridging counselling through telephone conversations, letters, e-mail, SMS and one on one conversations at our offices. For long-term, intensive counselling and help people are referred to Biblical counsellors and/or other helpers/specialists. To view our reference list, click here.
The counselling at Radio Pulpit has a biblical foundation. Our bridging counsellors have been trained to give people who phone in or write an opportunity to discuss their problems and to receive suitable godly counsel.
At present 30 counsellors serve voluntary and without remuneration 24 hours daily, 7 days weekly.
Monthly we handle approximately 600 phone calls and 150 emails. An average of 75 people are called back and 100 callers each receive a SMS to encourage them.
In the course of one month we also receive approximately 600 prayer requests and those are referred to our prayer partners country wide.
We minister to the youth via SMS and e-mail.
Clients of Cape Pulpit are also ministered to by us.
Once a week the counselling themes are classified and relevant topics and guests are suggested to the Radio Department to compile radio programmes.
The cell number for youth counselling is 071 679 4302.
