Out of the need from pastors asking what more they can do when they decide to refer a congregation member to counseling, we created a free pastoral counseling referral checklist that I want pastors to test in the field and let me know what they think.
My hope is that this checklist will help you navigate that process easier. We cannot account for every possible type of scenario that will come up, but the list below is a strong comprehensive list of what to do when referring someone. It is also broken down into three stages: preparation of referring someone, what to include when referring the person to counseling, and what you as a pastor can continue to do after they have started to attend counseling.
I pray this is received and put to good use. Having been in ministry before becoming a professional, licensed counselor, I understand how open people are with you, so it is an honor to be able to help you lead people who are hurting to find peace, hope, joy, and love. I pray for your words as you meet with them and their decision making as they consider the choice to find redemption not only in their earthly bodies but also continue to work with you as their pastor to find eternal redemption and grace.
With this purchase, you have unlimited use for your church or ministry. Unlimited access to future updates, we will email them to you. Only one license per ministry.
