As we have been sharing the vision and mission of the Scott Free Clinic, there's just one point some folks don't seem to realize: this is not a local ministry!
Even though we haven't launched the clinic yet, we are already connecting with people locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
The bulk of the clinical pastoral counseling will be done locally, although some (on a case-by-case basis) can be done by distance. Coaching, some Pastor Care, and consulting can be done by distance, and we anticipate I will be doing some traveling, especially for consulting and training with churches. So as you consider and pray about this ministry, don't think of it in terms of what we offer from our headquarters because we'll be serving many people far from our base of operations.
With that said, we haven't launched the clinic yet because while demand for the services grows on a daily basis, we don't have the funds to launch. You could probably think of at least 10 people who could benefit strongly from the services that will be provided by the clinic, but could you think of at least five people you could ask to pray for this ministry? Could you think of at least two or three people you could ask to consider giving to this ministry to help us be able to provide these critical services to people in need?
We need your help!
