2016 Year End Focus
Christmas is a time to celebrate what we hold most dear. We draw closer to God, family, and
friends, and express our affection and gratitude by giving. Christian Counseling Ministries would
not exist without the support of our community, support that comes in the form of prayer and
finances. With this in mind, I’d like to ask you to consider supporting our ministry this year.
CCM’s mission, Equipping our community to develop and sustain mental and spiritual health
through licensed professional care, guides all of our programming goals. We provide the good
news to encourage and inspire, education to empower, and coping tools to help overcome
obstacles. CCM strives to provide support to all those in need, whatever their financial situation.
To meet this goal, we rely on those in our community who share our passionate commitment to
mental and spiritual health and ask for your continued support in underwriting our mission. One
specific area that needs funding and attention at this time is our Pastor’s Fund.
Established in 2010 with a generous bequeath, the Pastor’s Fund allows CCM to provide pastors
and their families with counseling and encouragement at a minimal cost. While the initial gift has
gone a long way, providing $5,000 of annual funding to this mission, at the end of 2016 this fund
will be depleted.
This Christmas season I am asking for your help to replenish this Pastor’s Fund. Healthy and
balanced spiritual leaders are essential in the advancement of God’s kingdom and our community.
CCM strives to provide a safe, professional space for the leaders of our local churches to find help
Wise biblical stewardship mandates that we honor Christ with our God-given resources. As you
plan your gifts to loved ones and review your spiritual, personal and financial goals this year-end,
please consider a gift to CCM. I ask that you would prayerfully consider making a donation that
would allow us to continue the Pastor’s Fund, as well as extend and expand many of our other
services. For those of you who have generously supported us in the past, I thank you on behalf of
the many who have benefitted from your generosity.
