Becoming a Partner

If a local church wishes to explore becoming a partner with White Stone Resources to offer their members and attenders professional Christian counseling services, we will be honored to visit with any member of the pastoral staff or church leadership to provide a complete education of how we work with a church body to enhance their overall ministry. A church can request a meeting or presentation by contacting either Jon Noto (English-speaking congregations) or Dr. Luis San Roman (Spanish-speaking congregations). A mutually agreed-upon time and date will then be set and all questions can be addressed.

As we offer our services to local churches, we want the leadership of the body to get to know and trust those to whom they will be entrusting their parishioners' care. Each partnering local church is assigned a series of male and female counselors who will primarily be providing counseling services to the congregation. In addition, a primary contact person on our Staff will be assigned to the church. It is common for these members of the White Stone Counseling Staff to periodically attend church staff meetings or elder/deacon meetings in order to build comfort and understanding as trust grows between White Stone and the local church body. Some partnering churches provide a room in their facility for a White Stone counselor(s) to come each week and do counseling on-site with members and attenders. Other churches simply refer to one of our five strategically placed offices. White Stone Counselors are available to partnering churches to teach relevant workshops, train small group leaders, assist congregational care ministries, and consult with church leadership on relational and organizational issues where needed.

To formalize a partnership, a Partnership Agreement is signed between the local church and White Stone Resources. This agreement says that White Stone is to be the primary provider of Professional Christian Counseling Services to this body and will provide primary Counselors, teaching resources, consultation services, and competitive rates with a sliding scale. In addition, White Stone will provide high quality brochures that will promote the Christian Counseling Services being offered by the local church. White Stone will also place a link to each partnering church website on the White Stone website under the list of Partner Churches. The church will agree to provide regular referrals, frequent and consistent promotion of White Stone counseling services, opportunities for teaching or workshops, and if appropriate, a room location in the church facility for counseling services to be offered. In addition, if possible, a link from the church website to the White Stone Resources website is preferred.

We truly want to be partners with local churches in helping the members and attenders of the body find and experience the amazing freedom that is offered to each person in Christ. If you would like to talk further about how a partnership with White Stone Resources could enhance the healing and wholeness within your church body, please contact us at or call our main number at 847-821-9346.

"The relationship we have with White Stone counselors has proven to be very powerful in the lives of our people. The counselors from White Stone Resources are Biblically sound, well trained, and offer tangible therapy. They are not only committed to the health of the individual, but also to the ministry that a church can offer in cooperation with counseling. The relationship we have with White Stone enhances our ability to ministry effectively to our congregation. We highly recommend them."
