Counseling for the Flock, Built on the Rock!

Church Ministry Partner


Foundations Christian Counseling Services, Inc.'s relationship with the local church is extremely important as we assist the Pastor(s) in the spiritual care of the flock. Pastors within the local churches often have excessive demands of time and energy placed on them. Pastors have the desired expectation to be everything for everyone within their congregation. Often, the counseling needs of individuals or couples within the congregation exceeds the time and energy available in the pastor's already filled schedule, leaving little time for the pastor to spend time with his / her family or in reading the Scriptures.

Using the Christian Counseling services offered through this ministry will lighten the pastor's ministry burdens as the counseling needs of the congregation will be fulfilled. Due to these needs, Foundations offers Churches and Pastors the following services:

  • Professional Counseling: Our counselor(s) have years of experience counseling various issues, including many Mental Health Disorders as stated in the DSM-IV, and have completed a Masters degree and relevant training to meet the needs of those struggling within the church.

  • Accountability: If a client is a member of a local church, he / she has agreed to be under the spiritual protection of the pastor and elders. Therefore it is necessary that the Pastor have knowledge of the client's participation with Foundations Christian Counseling Services, Inc. The information being shared with the Pastor is information deemed necessary by the counselor regarding the spiritual care of the member. This may include (but is not limited to) the specific issue, the goal of counseling, specific scriptures addressing one's need, and the termination of counseling. Please Note: A written release form must be completed by members of a church.

  • Reasonable Rates: The typical rate for counseling is $75.00 per counseling hour. The rates for your members will be reduced when your Church becomes a Ministry Partner by financially supporting this ministry.

Presently, there are three levels of Church Ministry Partnership available to the local church:

  • Level 1: A participating church will annually donate $500.00. This level of participation reduces the counseling fees approximately 20% to $50.00 per session (This may save each individual or couple in your congregation more than $520.00. per year! *).

  • Level 2: A participating church will annually donate $1,500.00. This level of participation reduces the counseling fees approximately 30% to $45.00 per session (This may save each individual or couple in your congregation more than $780.00 per year! *).

  • Level 3: A participating church will annually donate $2,500.00. This level of participation reduces the counseling fees approximately 40% to $40.00 per session (This may save each individual or couple in your congregation $1,040.00 per year! *).

* Figures based on regular weekly visits (1 visit / per week) for one calendar year (52 weeks).

  • Billing Option: Churches who do not have the funds to support our ministry or who wish to engage in a trial period, and who desire to help their members financially with receiving professional Christian counseling, may request to be billed a portion of the counseling fees (i.e.: Rate $75.00. Client pays $20.00. Church billed $55.00).

  • Pastoral Resource: Pastors may contact Foundations for any counseling consultation at no cost.

  • Sunday School / Special Speaking Engagements: If your church is interested in a specific topic (i.e.: marriage, communication, parenting, self-esteem, conflict management, etc.) to be taught in Sunday School or at a Special Speaking / Teaching Engagement, we are able to help. Contact us for more information!
