TelePastor Launches Unprecedented Campaign, Offering 100,000 Churches Millions of Dollars in Services at No Charge.
TelePastor is a Secure, Multi-Use, Pastoral Counseling Platform for Churches and Groups
The creator of TelePastor, My Client Notes, LLC, is honored to announce an unprecedented offer, committing to give away several million dollars in free 60-day trials of its video conferencing services. The platform solves vital issues that pastors and church counselors face when scheduling and maintaining confidentiality in their counseling ministry by providing flexibility in scheduling appointments and keeping communications entirely private. TelePastor is an affordable, easy to use, program that gives small groups, ministries, and church teams a way to comfortably connect with their people.
TelePastor is effective for churches, denominations and colleges of all sizes. Created by My Client Notes, LLC., a Nuance Communications partner, TelePastor uses the HIPAA compliant e-Psychiatry platform to offer a confidential video chat platform that allows pastors to provide counseling and coaching via any computer or mobile device with a camera.
"Christmas is one of the busiest times for pastors and their staff and we want to help," explains Karl Kay, CEO of TelePastor. "We want churches to discover, now through January, all the uses that TelePastor offers. TelePastor is not new technology, it's just a new technology to churches. We want everyone: pastors, parishioners, small groups, ministries, and church teams, to benefit from this friendly and secure technology."
The TelePastor platform is also being utilized in churches across the country in a variety of ways other than traditional counseling ministries, including:
- Continuing counseling care for those who travel, move, leave for college or who are home-bound.
- Youth Pastors stay connected with students who have moved or are in school.
- Small groups include members who are traveling or who are ill.
- Ministry to moms who are at home with small children.
- Denominations that need to have confidential communications with their leadership.
- Discussions with missionaries who are on the field.
- Welcoming committees greet newcomers face to face.
- One on one staff meetings for churches with multiple campuses.
Karl continues, "By offering the platform free of charge we hope that churches and ministries will not only realize the usefulness of the TelePastor platform for counseling, but the virtually unlimited number of ways that ministries can use the program. Pastors have one of the most challenging jobs and we hope that TelePastor can help ease some of the burdens of counseling and time-management, while helping parishioners feel empowered and confident in seeking counseling."
As pastors seek to shepherd their church members and lead pastoral teams, challenges surrounding the formal and lay counseling ministries at churches grows daily. Pastors and congregants have hectic schedules and Pastors often lose productivity due to missed appointments. Coordinating a face-to-face meeting with those they shepherd who live or work far from the church location and be a large time commitment. Video conference platforms such as Skype or Google Hangouts do not provide confidentiality and security measures that meet HIPAA guidelines for professional counselors use. Privacy is a concern for everyone these days.
Pastoral counseling and encouragement are some of the essential outreach services nearly every church provides. TelePastor gives extra flexibility to meet counseling needs. Marriage and pre-marital counseling are two of the more common forms of pastoral counseling, and TelePastor can be a great solution if either or both spouses have challenging schedules. The system also offers more opportunities of continual care and accountability. Now pastors and their staff can experience some of the advantages that professional counselors have already experienced, namely; fewer missed appointments and the ability to schedule brief follow-up visits.
TelePastor is offering this 60-day, free trial offer to churches that register before December 31, 2016. http://www.telepastor.com
