Through Lutheran Counseling Services, the FLGA District provides the Ministerial Assistance Program (MAP).
Where do workers in ministry, and their families, go when they need help?
The Ministerial Assistance Program (MAP) of Lutheran Counseling Services, Inc. is designed to help clergy, church workers, educators, etc., and their families cope with church life and work challenges and demands. Because of the MAP program, these workers and their families receive up to 3 free counseling sessions; sessions are offered via phone, video, and in person.
Examples of concerns/problems that are appropriate for intervention by the Ministerial Assistance Program are:
• Assessment, referral, and/or therapy for an individual, marriage, or family concern
• A pastoral care congregational, staff, church school, or church governance issue
• A vocational crisis redirection
• Help with a church worker or parishioner grievance
Megan and Rick will be at the President’s Equip Conference from noon on September 28 to noon on September 30. They will be available for “conversation/consultation” and counseling during those times with a reasonable “ending” time in the evening on the first two days.
