Link Care – USA

Link Care is participating in the Great Commission by strengthening, equipping and counseling those who send and those who go.  The Restoration and Personal Growth Program addresses the unique needs of missionaries, pastors and Christian workers who have encountered difficulties in their fields of service. Our goal is to help Christian workers increase their effectiveness in their personal lives and ministries through restoration and personal growth. Lasting renewal and restored effectiveness come only when the Spirit of God motivates and empowers His servants in all that we do.

Link Care’s team of Psychologists, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Pastoral Counselors partner together to give professional counsel and guidance for the whole person: body, soul, and spirit. Our on-campus apartments provide housing for people in the Restoration and Personal Growth Program. The length of stay varies, depending on the presenting problems and available resources. We encourage a one-month, open-ended stay that would enable additional assistance, if needed. The average stay is between 2-3 months. Over 75% of the people who come seeking help return to their ministries.

God has given Link Care a passion for helping missions and missionaries be all that God created them to be and fulfill the great task of reaching our World for Jesus. The Link Care staff is able to partner with Church Denominations, Mission Organizations and Missionaries several ways: Candidate Assessment, Consultation, Restoration and Personal Growth Program, Seminars, and our Building Skills for Member Care Seminar.

In our interdisciplinary center we combine the following eight areas:

  • Intercultural competence
  • Psychological therapy
  • Membercare experience
  • Mediation and skills of conflict management
  • Counseling and supervision abilities
  • Spiritual and theological ressources
  • Organizational development consulting
  • Coaching of CEOs, leaders and teams
