About the organizer

We are a bilingual preventative and crisis counseling ministry assisting pastors and missionaries with their personal and ministerial counseling needs. Ministry leaders around the world need to experience biblical HOPE, CARE, AND RENEWAL just like the people they are shepherding. It is our conviction that God has placed a priority on the family as the foundation to society and to the local church. More than ever the family is under attack, especially for those in ministry. Though the core issues are the same for every family, there is a distinct dynamic involved for those in ministry that are having difficulty. Sadly, many pastors and wives, as well as their staff members, never have an opportunity to share their personal struggles and weaknesses. For this reason, God has led us to provide skilled, compassionate care for the caregivers and create a “safe place” for pastors, missionaries, and full-time Christian workers, who specifically need marital, family, or interpersonal relationship counseling and renewal.//Connect with us on Facebook and Instagram! @SelahICM #selah_icm
