day care centre
“Before I came to the Jesus Project, my life was a roller coaster ride. It went down more than up. But with the Jesus Project I found what I didn’t know until then: Fellowship, family, and later belonging. As a long-term atheist I thought that with God – there is no such thing! Despite my initial scepticism, I had encounters with God. Until then, my life was dominated by inferiority and feelings of guilt. With Jesus I get orientation, support and the guidance I need”.
The following tasks are part of my counselling service in the day care centre:
Coaching & pastoral care for employees, participants and families

A topic is dealt with with the aim of improving the current situation and finding own solutions.

Frequency: 1x/week for 30 minutes + homework.
Official and medical affairs, application assistance etc.
Here I work closely with our streetworker Andreas Grund. We accompany people to the doctor, to the local authorities, make hospital visits etc.. We pick up weakened persons from home, so that they can participate in our offers and experience community. When a child is expelled from school, I go along to school to mediate between parents, child and school and to find a solution for everyone.
Defusing acute conflict situations, conflict prevention.
Every Monday after the meal, the experts’ meeting takes place. In a group of 6-8 people we talk to each other about topics that are directly related to our everyday life, such as “Togetherness, not talking about each other”, “contaminated sites. Retrospect or forgiveness?” or “Experiencing God in everyday life”. We assume that each person is an expert in his or her own life and can enrich the lives of others with his or her own experiences by talking at the expert table. Meanwhile the “experts” open their hearts more and more and grant insight into their lives. As a matter of course, the desire for prayer has become part of it.
