Welcome to EXPLORATIONS UNITED – COUNSELING TEAM (EUCT)
This ministry is for those who would like to offer their friendship to the depressed and lost souls and help them get out of the state that they are in. It is very suitable for people who would like to serve the Lord from home. Therefore there is no need to worry about car petrol expenses, phone bills or even risking anyone to any air-borne viruses such as Covid-19 a.k.a coronavirus.
The advantage of this platform we are doing is that nicknames can be used. This will help to keep the identity of the shy person who needs someone to talk with. The counselors are allowed to use nicknames as well for privacy and safety purposes.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are in the process of recruiting new counselors, training them and announcing our service publicly as many still do not know that we have this service.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are currently recruiting more self disciplined & self motivated born again Christians to volunteer as counselors (training will be provided).
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):-
Question 1) : I am single. Can I volunteer to serve in this ministry?
Answer 1) : Yes
Question 2): What is my role as a counselor?
Answer 2) :-
First and foremost, all counselors must remember the following:-
God is our Abba Father. Christ is the Counselor. The Holy Spirit is the Teacher. The counselors in Explorations United are here to guide the counselees back to Abba Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit according to the Bible.
Isaiah 9:6 (ESV):-
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon His shoulder,
and His name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Secondly, we remember that we are here as humble friends to the counselees. Counselors DO NOT take the place of Christ as ‘THE COUNSELOR‘.
The reason why the counselors have to put a ‘Counselor’ word in front of their nicknames is because the counselees will then be able to know who are those attending to their needs. Confirmed appointed counselors will have a blue circle on their profile pics.
Question 3) : What are the serving hours like to serve in this ministry?
Answer 3) : Minimum serving is only one (1) hour, once a week (1 hour out of 168 hours) on a fixed day and fixed time. Maximum, up to you.
You can log in randomly anytime to serve besides your fixed time on the duty roster.

Please remind the counselees’ that saying the Sinner’s Prayer or Salvation’s Prayer is only the first step to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. They will still need to:-
