My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Christian Life Ministries, Rapid City, SD, USA
If you are struggling with issues of faith, CLM is a wonderful place to find help. However, CLM claims to offer counsel in areas of depression, anxiety, compulsive disorders, and substance abuse. But their carefully crafted leaglese obsolves them from any of the rules and responsibilities certified counselors have to subscribe to. They report to no "best practices" standards; they counsel based on a very conservative understanding of Biblical principles under the state law excemption that "clergy" can offer counsel without training. Yet, very few of the CLM staff has attended a seminary school and received a theology degree. You too can get ordained for a $30 fee online!
Well meaning, good people who are totally untrained. If you have a problem that's more than a spiritual hangnail, go elsewhere.
