Paying for education, coaching and counseling
Fairview provides administrative support for the Ministerial Health and Leadership Resources program to keep fees as low as possible.
Fees are often covered by the referring denomination’s insurance when the judicatory executive makes the referral. Other insurance plans may also provide coverage. It important to confirm your coverage and find out what type of referrals are needed, if any. The pastor or church leader is responsible for the deductible and co-pay. Many judicatories assist with the co-pay. Other costs include travel, lodging and meals.
Most insurance companies pay for counseling, with the pastor or church leader responsible for the deductible and co-pay. Again, it is important to check with your insurance company to be certain of coverage.
The fee for 12 coaching sessions is $800. Clergy Coaches has a scholarship of up to $400 available for pastors in need of financial help. Some judicatories also provide support, as do some congregations.
Fees for education programs are flexible and negotiable.
