Life invariably brings stressors to all of us and the ministry brings its own special challenges. We are not called to face these issues alone. Healthy people go to counseling when they have an issue to work through. We are wise when we take advantage of the resources God offers to be as healthy and effective as we can be.
IGRC's Office of Pastoral Care and Counseling has partnered with Chestnut Global Partners to provide clergy families with a broad network of support and local licensed counselors. Whatever challenges you're facing, the Clergy Assistance Program has someone who can help. We encourage you to take a look at the attached brochure and consider which resources might be helpful to you. CAP extends to clergy families and so we invite you to share these resources with your family.
