Has Your Church Partnered with Us?

The local church is central to all that we do at Baylight Counseling. As a para-church ministry, we exist not to be served by the local church, but to serve by helping our counselees find true and lasting hope in the one who gave his life as a ransom for many, Jesus Christ.

Since 2013, we've been working to refine and make better our ministry services in order to effectively and efficiently serve the local church and her pastors as an adjunct partner for the care of their people. Today, we'd like to deepen those relationships by introducing a new effort: the Church Partnership Program.

Under this program, which will increase in size and scope as time passes, we desire to give to the churches we serve as much as we receive in overall support from them. The goal of this effort is to establish a network of local churches that are finding relief to the questions: Where do we send our people when they need extended counseling, and who can we trust to be faithful to the message of the Gospel?

We believe Baylight is the perfect resource to answer the counseling dilemma for the local church of Tampa Bay, and we invite pastors, elders, and deacons to consider this new opportunity to take a decisive and intentional step for faithful and trustworthy soul care.

In the future, we anticipate additional ministry offerings, to include equipping seminars focused upon common shepherding issues faced by pastors and small group leaders. Partnering churches will have access to these seminars t no additional cost to their church. In the meantime, partnering congregations will enjoy constant contact with us concerning their counseling cases, collaboration on difficult scenarios, and complimentary first sessions for their covenant members.

If you're a pastor who would like to learn more, or if you know a pastor who should know about this opportunity, please feel free to contact us. We'd love to meet with you in person to talk about how Baylight Counseling might become a valuable resource to your church and ministry.
