The ministry of Roots&Branches does not offer professional, medical, or psychological care. We never advise anyone to stop taking medication. It is the responsibility of the seeker to inform their practitioner of their participation in Roots&Branches ministry. It is also the responsibility of the seeker to adhere to the recommendations of their professional caregivers. We will coordinate healing prayer with the care of professional counselors and caregivers at the seeker’s request and with written permission from the seeker.
The content of all sessions is strictly confidential and will not be discussed outside ministry leadership. Exceptions to this would be if your prayer ministers have reason to believe that you are at risk of hurting yourself or another, or if there is a reason to suspect child or elder abuse/neglect. In these instances, the necessary authorities or persons must be notified by law.
I understand that this ministry uses volunteer prayer ministers who have completed the Roots&Branches training program. As such, they are required to consult periodically with ministry leadership. I give my permission for my prayer ministers to discuss my prayer needs with appropriate staff as necessary.
If I have any questions concerning my prayer minister's training, experience or qualifications, I have the right to consult with the Roots&Branches staff. As with any other volunteer religious organization, it is my choice to take any suggestions, teaching, or prayer of the ministry under consideration and apply it appropriately. If at any time I feel offended by anything my prayer minister asks, says, or does, I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to report it immediately to Roots&Branches staff.
I may have up to five visits with my prayer team. At any point, my prayer team will reassess with me the need for additional ministry or referral.
I have read and understand the above and consent to receiving help through the Roots&Branches Network for Healing and Growth.
We are grateful for smaller gifts.
If this amount is a hardship, please let us know when you submit your intake form or email for follow up appointments. We do not want this suggested donation to prevent anyone from receiving ministry. We will gladly explore options and scholarships with you as you make your appointment.
We are also grateful for larger gifts.
A single prayer room appointment actually costs about $90. The healing that happens in these appointments is, of course, invaluable. Donations over and above $40 help us offer scholarships to those not able to afford a donation and help keep the prayer room doors open. The cost of prayer room ministry includes our prayer room hours with clients, scheduling and client communications, rent, office supplies, website support, accounting, training volunteers, payroll for three part-time staffers, and more.
