Managing the Legal Risks of Lay Counseling

When creating a safe, secure environment for a lay counseling ministry you'll need to develop specific policies and procedures that protect your church, lay caregivers, and those who receive care. The effectiveness of any church program begins with the understanding and support of church leadership. That's especially true of lay counseling and spiritual care ministries. This resource will help you consider policies and procedures to manage the legal risks as you develop a lay counseling ministry.
