Part of discipleship at The Paradox is the practice of applying wisdom in love in regards to sin, suffering, and relationships. We believe that discipleship through the church is God’s primary context for change–the community God uses to transform his people. In this community God calls every member to “one–another” (help, serve, encourage one another, etc). We labor with our entire lives to help those in our church family to grow in maturity in Christ (cf. Colossians 1:28-29) by applying the gospel. And we labor to help those outside the church family to see their need for Jesus.

This means that City Groups, Partnership, and Redemption Groups, are the primary places that we work out caring for one another. When special circumstances require help beyond these places we connect people with a partner within the City Groups ministry to help consider other steps of care. This might include connecting you to a trusted professional counselor, meeting with a pastor or church leader, or helping equip those in your community to walk with you as you seek the Lord in your particular struggle. 

A partner at The Paradox can serve you as an advocate as you seek help. An advocate is someone who stands in the gap for a friend or loved one in his or her time of need. They pray, provide helpful information, insights and questions, take good notes, and care for and walk with their friend or loved one after formal care ends.
