The Conference Pastoral Counselor may see clergy, their families, and other professional staff members for an initial evaluation and then refer to a South Georgia Network provider. Since clergy members serving full-time are covered under the conference insurance, they must see a United Behavioral Health paneled provider. In rare instances this requirement may be waived.

Payments from the Conference Pastoral Counselor’s office to a non-network provider ARE NOT authorized without express written permission from the CPC.

All clergy are encouraged to call the Conference Pastoral Counselor for help, guidance, and care, which impacts their personal, family, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
