Pastors Corner

It is the mission of Lighthouse Christian Counseling to build up the body of Christ by ministering to hurting people with Soul Care in effort to support the local church in creating disciples of Christ. 

Lighthouse Christian Counseling is designed to assist pastors and the church in many ways. We offer a safe, confidential, professional, yet compassionate Christ-centered environment for those you entrust to us.

WAYS WE CAN PARTNER

1. Counseling
We provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families that pastors and other lay leaders refer to us. This includes working with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults.

2. Church Partnerships
Several churches participate in our Counseling Assistance Program (CAP). This program functions similar to an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) in that the fees are reduced for clients who attend churches that participate in the program. When a church has a CAP contract with Lighthouse, the church pays a monthly or yearly fee, and members receive services at significantly reduced rates.

The advantage of this program is that it encourages people in the congregation who need help to seek that help because it is more affordable. This makes Christian counseling more accessible to your congregation. It also frees the pastor from spending large amounts of time counseling people, thereby enabling him to invest his time in leading and creating a vision for his church.

If you are interested in discussing this program in more detail, please contact John Hickson at 410-758-4800, or by email at johnhickson@lcclightingtheway.com. We can customize an agreement that will best meet the needs of your congregation.

3. Clinical Supervision
We offer training and supervision for pastors who perform counseling as part of their ongoing ministry. This is done by meeting one-on-one with one of our staff members to discuss biblical counseling principles as they relate to actual cases that you are dealing with.

4. Seminars
We offer seminars on various issues related to emotional and spiritual health. Lighthouse Christian Counseling has staff members with diversified areas of expertise who are able to conduct a seminar on a topic of value to your church.

6. Speaking Engagements
Lighthouse also provides leadership training or in-services on various issues related to leadership and ministering to the needs of people. This service typically takes place in a 1-2 hour time period at a staff meeting or church leadership meeting with lay leaders in your congregation.

7. Hosting a Satellite Counseling Location
Several churches host counseling offices on site at their church. For more information related to this arrangement, please contact John Hickson at 410-758-4800 or by email at johnhickson@lcclightingtheway.com. These churches have enjoyed several benefits of this partnership including:
