Conflict Management:
A “peacemaker” is one who seeks to bring harmony and reconciliation between those who are estranged. Peacemaking seeks to produce right relationships between persons. God frowns those who sow discord, disharmony and encourages trouble (Proverbs 6:19). However, every community and every local church, ministry and many homes often have people who thrive on creating divisions, conflict and strife (Acts 6: 1-7).

Our counselors will help you confidently lead your team out of the foggy midst of quarrels, complaints and frustration; into clear, creative Biblical options. We customize our interventions to fit churches and ministries. If you’re in need, we can help you.

Contact us by phone to briefly discuss your situation without charge or obligation.

Crisis Management:
A house of worship, at one time, was considered one of the safest places to be. In most crisis management scenarios, the outcome depends heavily on what you do and say in the first few hours. What the news media report in their first stories — and how they view your coping skills — will often set the tone for the entire crisis. Chances are, the media's first impression will persist until you have overcome the problem and emerged victorious ... or you've been humiliated, fired, put out of business, arrested, sued, divorced ... the list goes on and on.

Our counselors at Healthy Living Seminars will work to help you answer and develop a strategy for dealing with tough questions and how to communicate in a crisis. Questions such as: Who should speak? What should they say? Why should they talk to the news media? How soon, how often and with who should they communicate? Basically, how can a church or ministry be prepared to handle communications when the unthinkable occurs?

Education & Training:
Whether you’re an individual seeking to learn more about emotional challenges, a church wanting to start a helping ministry, or even an a lay minister searching for resources for your classroom, we are here to help! Through a wide array of training programs and information resources, our team stands ready to help congregations become sensitive to the needs of people with mental illness and their families. Let us help your church reflect the love of God through making the Gospel of Jesus Christ truly understandable to all.

Family Life Counseling:
Family Life Counseling Center is available for anyone aged 18 years or older who needs a guide through personal, relationship, or family issues.

Leadership Counseling:
Moses had many occasions to learn what countless leaders down through history have discovered: it’s windy at the top! Lacking water, the people complained bitterly to their leader, as if he had caused the situation or had the power to fix it (Ex. 17:2).  Perhaps you’ve are experiencing a similar situation of being in charge, knowing that you are doing the right thing, or at least the best you can, only to hear complaints for the people following you because things are not going well.  We are here to help!

Contact us for our leadership training sessions and learn how to make a tradeoff between being faithful and being popular.

Marriage Seminars:
Great marriages don’t just happen.  Husbands and wives need to nurture them. They need to make their marriage relationship a priority of importance. That’s where Healthy Living Seminars’ Marriage Workshops can help. Join us for a fun, practical yet enriching time of learning powerful biblical tools that will build strong, healthy marriages. This will no doubt be a time for some couples to improve on their Christ-centered marriage, while promoting healing for challenged ones.
These marriage workshops are open to couples or groups. Whether you’ve been married for years, remarried, newlywed or engaged, attend a workshop and learn how to develop or enhance a Christ-centered foundation for your marriage.

Ministry to Ministers:
Too many pastors are expected to carry out a variety of duties for which they are not always prepared to handle - everything from sermon preparation to administration, or personal counseling. The inevitable mistakes and weaknesses caused by these expectations can lead to insecurity, making a pastor feel like a failure. Frustration begins to mount, causing more mistakes and, finally, "burnout". It is a self-perpetuating cycle!

Moses was a classic example of this, but fortunately, he had Jethro. Healthy Living Seminars counseling staff can be that Jethro in your life by encouraging insight into the damage that excessive work, burnout and misperceptions are causing.  Moses responded right away to Jethro’s suggestions. Will you?

Contact us by phone to briefly discuss your situation without charge or obligation.

Ministry Restoration:
From the Garden of Eden to the New Jerusalem, the Word of God demonstrates God’s plan and purpose to restore fallen man to Himself.  This the major focus of Jesus Christ, who as God in the flesh was the substitutionary sacrifice that freely gives forgiveness, justification, regeneration, sanctification, and reconciliation. For II Corinthians 5:19 states “That God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation."

If you, as a minister, had to leave your pastorate because of exposed sin, or sexual misconduct,

If your church has gone through the heartbreak of losing a pastor because of moral misconduct,
 
If you're a church leader, ministerial colleague, or religious leader that wants to help restore a fallen pastor,
 
If you know a former pastor or church that has or is going through a time of brokenness, contact us by phone to briefly discuss your situation without charge or obligation.

Stress Management:
When is the last time you felt stressed out by your ministry? How many times a week does the stress get so high it impacts your thoughts, mood, behavior or performance? It seems like stress goes with the territory that it is an occupational hazard.

It is estimated by the American Institute of Stress, that 75% to 90% of all doctor’s visits are caused by reactions to stress; and a recent study found that three out of four parish ministers reported severe stress causing anguish, worry, bewilderment, anger, depression, fear and alienation.

But does it need to be that way?

eCounseling:
Healthy Living Seminars Online provides you the best online counseling by connecting you via email or phone to HLS counselors regardless of where you are. HLS Online provides Christian counseling to help you heal and grow based on Biblical truths.

Because cell phones, email, chat, etc. have changed how we communicate with each other, online counseling (or e-counseling) is a growing trend taking advantage of these tools to connect with counselors regardless of where they are.  Contact us for more information.
