YOU can help change more lives than you think ...

Imagine a group of strong, brave, compassionate men and women standing on the corner of Anytown, USA. They're the men and women who showed up to be the doctors and nurses for a hospital in Anytown. The problem is, there's no hospital. No building, no patient rooms, no equipment, medicine, or care because there aren't any resources for any of that. There's just a highly competent team ready and willing to serve.

Lives can't be changed unless resources are provided to change that scenario.

That's the situation that I and the Board of Directors for the Scott Free Clinic find ourselves in. We've showed up, we're ready to roll out services to help people, pastors, and churches. People are praying for us. Many have already asked for our help. We just don't have any resources to offer the help we're capable of offering. Can you help us gain that support? If not directly, can you share our vision of ministry with others who may be able to help?

Let me share with you the details of this ministry so you can better understand how you can be directly involved in changing lives. The video below chronicles our mission and vision, as well as shares real life stories from people who have had their lives impacted by the ministry we're ready to provide. At the end of the video is information about how you can become involved ...

Following is key information shared on the video:

The Scott Free Clinic is an independent, non-profit parachurch ministry currently in developmental stages. To support the ability for this new parachurch ministry to be able to move beyond its developmental stage, Hope Christian Church in Fairfield, CA is willing to serve temporarily as a Fiscal Sponsor so that this new ministry can receive TAX DEDUCTIBLE donations from sources who are interested in supporting the vision and mission of Scott Free Clinic.

Ministry vision ...
The Scott Free Clinic will be an independent, non-profit parachurch ministry formed to provide counseling, coaching, and consulting services to persons and churches internationally (meaning services aren't provided just locally, but also regionally, nationally, and internationally), without the barrier of cost, so that lives and churches will be changed through Christ, for the glory of God.

Ministry mission ...
Helping people become whole persons in Christ, and churches to become effective disciple-making churches.

Service offerings ... 
  • Comprehensive clinical pastoral counseling.
  • Advanced coaching.
  • Couple Communication Training.
  • Fitness consulting.
  • Pastor Care (counseling for vocational and bi-vocational ministers).
  • Church consulting (especially in providing training in equipping people to share the Gospel).
Those who are interested in giving to help make this ministry vision become reality can do so by sending their checks to:

Hope Christian Church
149 Grobric Court
Fairfield, CA 94534
IMPORTANT: All checks should be made payable to "Hope Christian Church" and please notate on the memo portion of the check "Scott Free Clinic" so those funds will be designated only for the Scott Free Clinic.
