Dear friend,I would like to introduce to you the Heart to Heart Outreach Ministry-Uganda
A BOUT THE HEART TO HEART OUTREACH MINISTRY
The Heart to Heart Outreach ministry is located at Heart to Heart Celebration Center in Bukasa–Sentema Road, Wakiso, Division, Wakiso District. The H.H.O.M runs the Community Seed Project. The H.H.O.M is in partnership between the local communities and other well wishers. The CSP came out of the need to address the youth and other disadvantaged children or hopelessness youth’s education and training.
H.H.O.M we teach youth how to win in life. Life can be challenging. We do not have to go very far to find someone who is having difficult overcoming life’s problems.
The scriptures call life a race, “Don’t you know that those who run in a race all run … run in such a way that you may win”.
Like it or not, we are all running a race, we are all busy, and at times our lives can get out of control. The H.H.O.M. We believe God has made provision for us to regain control of our lives. Our heavenly father has provided us all we need through the Holy Spirit and the word of God to win in this race called life.
Ever feel lost in a crowd? Ever wished someone would just listen? Do you believe life is more than saying the occasional “Hi” or “What is up”? We do. We all have a need inside for someone to truly “know us” and to know others in a real way.
That’s why the H.H.OM exist, to help you go beyond the surface. We want you to go to the next level and lock in with great fiends that are going your direction towards God.
Is to make a positive impact upon the youth by creating a city wide family centre in which all are welcome, a place where all youth and individuals can grow and flourish in faith and discover God’s plan for their lives.
The H.H.O.M is to encourage you, to build your faith, to better equip you so you can live a victorious life – a soaring life here and now (Isaiah 40:31).
We believed God has made you a winner through Jesus Christ all you need is to be reminded.

WHAT IS PASTORAL COUNSELING?
Pastoral counseling is a confidentiality meeting of two or more people in which a Pastoral counselor listens to the counselee describe a personal or family life challenge while the pastoral counselor gives empathy, hope, encouragement, prayer and advice based on wisdom from the bible.
A pastoral counseling session is conducted in one hour time period. The pastoral counselor spends that time listening, asking questions and giving advice intended to help the counselor resolve the challenge they are having. The pastoral counselor uses prayer and a scripture to welcome God’s presence into the healing process.
Sometimes one session is all that is needed while other times the pastoral counselor suggests a series of 3-0 follow up sessions. Because pastoral counseling is only one part of the overall ministry to individuals and families at H.H.C.C counselors are encouraged to participate in weekly worship services, Bible studies, seminars and other fellowships at Heart to Heart Celebration Center or in the church activities in order to achieve the maximum benefit from pastoral counseling. Some of situations in which you can helped include premarital, discouragement, grief and loss, loneliness, marital preparation, marriage problems, struggle with sin, anger, Christian, discipline, faith, fear, self esteem, etc.
