In addition to our retreat ministry, we also offer the following services as a ministry to the Church of Jesus Christ:

Missionary Candidate Assessment

Alongside offers missionary candidate pre-field assessments at our counseling center. We are also willing to travel to a mission board to assess candidates when there are a number of candidates to be assessed in one place at one time.


We offer ongoing counseling for pastors or missionaries who come to any of our programs and who desire to stay longer or come back at a later time in order to pursue counseling in greater depth.

Field Visits

Alongside counselors are available to visit missionaries or mission teams in their place of ministry when that is desired and our schedule allows. We are sometimes able to go to the field in an emergency or crisis situation, depending on prior commitments.

Speaking Engagements

Members of Alongside’s staff are available to speak at seminars, retreats, and other gatherings – please contact our office for more information.
