The church is the body of Christ and extended family. Believers are a member of the family. Apostle Paul's expression of the church and the human body (1 Cor. 12) as well as his emphasis on growth, healing and systemic interconnection (Eph. 4:11), are powerful images of a healthy community working together. God has called us as Christian to minister to one another and to bear one another's burdens in our church. The church should be a community of helping for many hurting people in this broken world. The lay counseling helps restore the purpose and mission of the church. Trained lay counselor in the church have an important role to play in extending pastoral care to all members of the church. In churches where the pastor believes that all problems can be resolved by only exhortation, or is convinced that the church should avoid any appearance of being a therapeutic community, lay counseling are likely to flounder. A Christian, biblically-based approach for vitalizing lay counseling ministry by nonprofessional is described in this paper, It emphasizes the following: (a) a model that sees the church as a caring community where care, counsel, and healing are natural parts of church life. Specialists for cure are developed out of the context of caring process that encourage each member to find his or her place of ministry in the Body of Christ; (b) comparing caring community with cure model and truth community; (c) the central place of Christian values and intervention in lay counseling. A biblical approach to counseling that explicitly utilizes Christian religious values or perspectives and intervention makes unique contributions to counseling effectiveness; (d) lay counseling and discipleship training. Lay counseling enables counselees to reach their fullest potential and to become involved in growth as disciplers for Jesus Christ; (e) lay counseling and cell ministry; (f) lay counseling and the need for the church to provide prevention.
