Mobilizing Church-Based Counseling, the first book in the Church-Based Counseling series, provides a framework for guiding churches through the process of building a volunteer-led counseling ministry.
Many churches would like to start a counseling ministry, but they don’t know where to start. Mobilizing Church-Based Counseling offers direction to churches for creating a ministry built around lay-led counseling groups and mentoring.Based on proven models used in his own congregation, Brad Hambrick lays out a clear plan to launch a sustainable soul-care ministry that can be replicated in churches of any size.
Hambrick brings clarity to common points of confusion about church-based counseling and provides guidance on how to provide oversight for lay-led counseling groups and mentoring relationships.Your church can minister the hope of the gospel to the struggles of life—both sin and suffering—without incurring unwise liability or going beyond the capacity of your members.
The first book in the Church-Based Counseling series is designed to help churches mobilize andutilize levels of care from friendship to mentoring to counseling groups.
Discover two flexible models of church-based counseling ministry. One addresses common life struggles(the G4 model) and the other focuses on premarital and marital enrichment.
Designed to fit within a local church and to be implemented by volunteers.
Acknowledges and addresses questions and concerns of liability and ethics of lay counseling as well as the care and well-being of the mentors and leaders.
Includes foreword by J. D. Greear
