Ministry Description
Alongside's mission is to restore hope, purpose, passion, and relationships among Christian leaders, to the end of promoting personal wholeness and ministry effectiveness. Our vision is to serve pastors, missionaries, Christian leaders, their families, and their organizations both in the United States and abroad by providing resources such as professional counseling, teaching, retreats, organizational consulting, and similar programming of both a preventive and restorative nature within a distinctly biblical framework and within a milieu of distinctly Christian community, promoting restoration and growth resulting in increased personal wholeness and ministry effectiveness.

Alongside is a Christian counseling and retreat ministry for pastors and missionaries, many of whom cannot afford to pay for the counseling help that they so desparately need. Since it is our ministry's policy that we do not turn people away based on their ability to pay, we offer scholarships to those with demonstrated financial need. These scholarships are funded by donations from people who love and support the Lord's servants, and we very much appreciate their generosity!
