Congregations have the opportunity to benefit from the Center’s Partnership in Ministry Program that supports and extends the ministry of the church. Through partnership, the Center makes its professional counseling, educational and consultation services more accessible to church members, clergy and staff. In a covenant agreement, Partner congregations advance the mission of the Samaritan Counseling Center through an annual financial contribution to the Center’s Samaritan Fund, which supports the Center’s services and programs. Referrals, prayer and promotional support are also requested.
