Support the next generation of pastoral counselors

VIPCare is one of only a few institutes in the USA where the next generation of pastoral counselors are being trained.

As well, VIPCare is a resource for clergy who wish to acquire pastoral care skills to better support their own congregants.

Many pastors do not have access to financial resources that enable them to continue their education beyond seminary. Funds for scholarships and educational expenses are an important part of training the next generation of pastoral counselors and pastoral leaders.

To make a gift to support clergy pastoral education, simply designate on your donation: for pastoral education.

Financial Statements and Annual Reports are available upon request at 804-282-8332.
