    Why We Love This Opportunity

    This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to build, grow, and develop a licensed professional counseling center. For the right candidate, this opportunity represents the chance to launch a clinical practice leveraging the resources, budget, and people of Faith Church. The existing counseling center at Faith Church utilizes independent contractors to provide licensed mental health therapy and sees approximately 400 people come through its doors each month.

From finding a new location and building to creating client intake procedures and billing solutions, the new Counseling Center Director will have the opportunity to speak into every aspect of the Counseling Center.

They do this through creative, innovative, and forward-thinking ministry. With a focus on loving people well, the staff and members prioritize relationships, mentoring, and coaching.
