The Ministry Assistance Program is a service of Lime Tree Counseling which provides confidential, professional, Christian counseling and educational resources. Our goal is to make the process of referring both your ministry staff and people under your care to professional counseling. The program facilitates positive movement of the body towards becoming healthier in mind and spirit. No contracts are involved; just a streamlined process and partnership!
To partner with the Body of Christ (the Church & related ministries) and bring healing to those in our community who are emotionally and spiritually wounded. Meeting them where they are, in the midst of their suffering, we journey with them toward the healing and transformation found in Jesus Christ. The MAP is structured to help facilitate professional counseling referrals for ministry staff as well as members of a church or ministry organization.
Benefits Of Partnership
The Ministry Assistance Program (MAP) offers a partnership, allowing your leaders to focus energies on ministry responsibilities while confidently referring long-term counseling needs to a trusted professional. We are proud to offer program participants a 15% discount for the first three sessions for each individual who participates in counseling. We are also available to provide general consultation for mental health concerns in the church and provide direction/guidance for “next steps” for more complex situations involving greater care needs.
At Lime Tree Counseling, we hate the run around. We make it as simple as possible. Connect directly to the referral form online. Once submitted, we reach out for scheduling and invite them to complete their intake forms via an easy secure online platform. That’s it.
The best outcomes start with a quick connection; from referral to initial session. As a part of the MAP, Lime Tree Counseling is often able to make this occur within days, not weeks. No wait lists.
Lime Tree Counseling has a physical office in Montgomery County and also offers teletherapy to all Pennsylvania residents. In accordance with state law, all clients must be physically present in the state during each session.
Our team is handpicked, vetted, trained and supervised to provide comprehensive care for our clients. Biblical knowledge meets clinical know-how to address a wide range of concerns our clients may have.
Counselors are bound to confidentiality requirements by law. We will encourage clients to complete and sign a “release of information” form which allows us to communicate with their ministry support or church.
Splitting The Payment? No Problem!
It’s not uncommon for a church or ministry organization to shoulder some of the cost. We make this as easy as possible and can split our fee at whatever percentage is agreed upon. We require a credit card to be kept on file for payment. You will be emailed a receipt for your records.
