Please read the following information and acknowledge your acceptance of care from Celebration Church
Celebration Church Care Ministry Team consists of experienced, mature Pastors and highly-trained, well-supervised Care Partners. We are not licensed professional counselors, psychologists, physicians, social workers, accountants, financial planners, or attorneys; we do not provide therapy, psychiatric, medical or mental health treatment nor do we give legal or financial advice.
We will listen to the story about your situation and ask questions to fully understand what is going on in your life right now. Together, with faith, prayer, and wisdom from God’s Word, we will help you identify potential solutions and access practical resources that empower you with strength and skills to take the next appropriate steps to move forward through the changes and uncertainty you are facing.
Confidentiality & Supervision – We protect your privacy and keep all information you tell us confidential. No information, written or verbal, will be released to anyone outside of the Care Ministry Team without your written permission. Therefore, you can feel free to talk about your situation without fear anyone else will know about it. The Care Ministry Team meets monthly in small groups to give and receive peer supervision as a means of ongoing support and advanced training to ensure high-quality, competent caregiving is delivered to you. As they talk about their own thoughts and feelings as a caregiver, they may share some factual information about your situation, but will never disclose anything that would reveal your personal identity.
Duty to Warn & Protect – If you disclose intentions or imply a plan to harm yourself or another person, we are required to make reasonable attempts to warn the intended victim, to notify other family members, and report this information to legal authorities and appropriate social service agencies.
Professional Consultation or Referral – On occasion, we will recognize your need for care is beyond our ability to provide adequate care and we may decide the best way to care for you is to consult with or refer you for direct care by a licensed professional. In that case, we will discuss the options with you and help you obtain the best appropriate professional care for your needs. Your relationship with a Care Partner may continue only after you have met with the professional and they have given permission for the Care Partner relationship to continue.
Abuse of Children & Vulnerable Adults – If you state or suggest a child or an elderly or disabled adult has been physically, emotionally, or mentally abused or neglected, is a victim of a sexual offense or contact, or may be at-risk for harm or injury of any kind, we are required to report this information to legal authorities and appropriate social service agencies.
Understanding & Acceptance – I understand Celebration Church Care Ministry, agree to the meaning and limits of confidentiality, and give permission for my caregiver to give and receive supervision as a part of my care. Further, I acknowledge reporting requirements as explained. I choose to receive care from a Pastor and/or Care Partner and will actively engage in the care process with my assigned caregiver. I voluntarily sign this document and submit this Request & Agreement for Care by entering the following information:
