7) Curious about Counselling Centers for Missionaries

RetreatMost missions strategists agree that member care is a significant part of missions and ministry health. This past week, we heard from a guy with a growing vision for starting a small business to provide a place for restoration, spiritual retreat and marriage and personal counselling opportunities for those working in Northern Africa and along the Mediterranean. He’s wondering if anyone would be willing to send him any current organizations or businesses operating retreat and/or counselling centres for missionaries (anywhere in the world) that he could use to investigate in his research.

    The Olive Tree Counseling Center opened in Antalya, Turkey, in June 2014 and it’s purpose is to give counseling and support to workers in that area and other surrounding countries. It has a staff of 6 licensed therapists. More information can be found on their website: http://www.olivetreecounseling.org
