Board of directors

The Soul Care Institute Board of Directors is made up of leaders engaged in both ministry and the marketplace. The Board carries the Institute with their passion for fiscal integrity, desire for sustainable health, and future growth of the Institute. The Board meets quarterly on behalf of the Institute and prays regularly for wisdom and discernment for all involved. We believe that their engagement will broaden the reach and influence of the Soul Care Institute.
