Community of Hope International (COHI) equips lay people to serve in all forms of pastoral care. Pastoral care is when a person is being “present” in a listening, compassionate, non-controlling manner to an individual or group for consciously or unconsciously representing God to them and seeking to respond to their spiritual needs.
