Consultation

Churches, judicatories or denominations may face complex issues relating to abuse, potential abuse, power dynamics or boundary issues.  Sometimes the perspective of someone outside the community can help discern the healthiest path in a difficult situation.

Kyros Ministry offers consultation to faith communities who find themselves in these situations.  Our staff listens with seasoned ears and asks the right questions to help you sort out responses that lead to greater health for individuals and the whole community.
