If you work in ministry and need non-emergent care:

Are you feeling down? Are you struggling to be motivated? Is ministry taking its toll? Are you wondering how much longer you can keep going in your current role? Is ministry affecting your family or other relationships? We are here to listen and help discern how you can find the healing you need.

During normal business hours, we will answer your call or get back to you as soon as possible. Any other time, we will respond as soon as possible but it may be the next day. If the situation requires more urgent attention, reach out to one of the support teams listed above.
