The Samaritan Counseling Center’s mission begins and ends with people and our community.

Educational presentations by Center staff for congregations, clergy & church leaders

partner-logo-vertThe Center sponsors four breakfast seminars a year featuring presentations by our clinical or program staff relevant to clergy and their ministry needs. Each of the breakfast seminars is followed by an opportunity to attend a several session group in the following weeks. The groups allow participants to explore a more in-depth understanding of the topic in an environment of collegial support and mutual learning, and include integrative work to help with practical application of the theory.

The clergy breakfast seminars, held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 10 Delp Road, Lancaster, are from 7:30am to 9:00am. Advanced registration is required.
