Board Opportunities

We are an evangelical Christian para church organization. We exist to introduce Christ's restoration to brokenness, be it emotional, psychological, or relational, through a team of Christian professionals. We recognize many believers are beset by difficulties that would prevent them from functioning as members of the Body of Christ with unique contributions to make. In addition we recognize many seekers and others desire services that are respectful of and sensitive to spiritual issues. We are aware that quality mental health services, rooted in biblical principles and Christian values, are at a premium. We seek to partner with pastors and church leaders to provide trustworthy resources to meet the needs of their flock and to advance God’s kingdom.

We have the infrastructure in place to provide more services than we are currently providing and we are seeking the assistance of others to reach our potential. We are waiting on God for persons to fill many important roles. Could one of them be you? A mental health background or long-term commitment is not required.

Currently we are seeking persons to add to our Board who would broaden our church/denominational, ethnic, and socioeconomic representation. We are especially interested in adding individuals with backgrounds in finance and accounting, in pastoral ministry, in business/management, and in higher level business administration. Also we want persons who can serve on the Board as a mental health professional, (someone who is not an employee), as a consumer of mental health services, and as a lay person.

Persons interested in serving are invited to become familiar with our organization through talking with a current Board or staff member or attending a Board meeting. For additional information or application please contact Rob Pramann, PhD, Clinical Director and Board Secretary/Treasurer (Work 801-268-1564 x3, or Michael Galica, Board President/Chairman ( or send resume and letter of interest to 525 East 4500 South, Suite 125, Salt Lake City, Utah 84107-2995.
