Is there a Christian ministry that exists that welcomes anybody

Resolved Question:

Is there a Christian ministry that exists that welcomes anybody to call them 24/7 with not only Bible questions, but even also questions regarding a problem that the individual is facing and needs guidance, advice, or counsel on or even if someone just wants to talk or vent out to someone and where someone will always be quickly available to take and answer calls and where the people from the ministry also have patience and give no limits to how many times anybody can call or if they can do the same thing via the internet or e-mail, but will always respond very quickly like no later than 24 hours and where they won't ever use the excuse that they might not be able to get back with a person due to so many e-mails they receive? If there does exist such a ministry, can you please give me its website, mailing address, phone number, etc.? Thank you.

And the ministries that you mentioned above fit my description to a tee? They won't say something like "Our counseling is in our prayer."? I believe I one time called the 700 Club and asked for advice or guidance and they said "Well, I will pray for you, and you figure out what I am trying to say in my prayer. That's what we mean by counseling." And that's not counseling at all. Counseling involves talking one-to-one. As for TBN, their website once said that they couldn't promise they could respond back to e-mails because they get a lot of e-mails and that it was difficult for them to get back with people.

Hi again, and thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately, I can't promise that the ministries I listed will fit the description of what you are seeking, to a tee. You would need to call to find out if they can provide the services you require. However, if you already have had past experiences with the two you mentioned and they were not appropriate for your needs, you can call the others I listed to find out if they can be of help.

It also might be a good idea to get a personal referral for such a service from your own church or other churches in your local area.

the counseling be Christian related? If not, I would be glad to search for other telephone/email counseling services that are available 24/7, for you.

Please let me know. Thanks!

Best regards,

Yes, I am open to others that are not Christian related.

Hi again, Jaime and thanks for that additional information.

Please allow me a short while to gather this information for you.

Your patience is appreciated.

Hi again, Jaime and thanks for your patience.

Some of these are for kids, teens and young adults; I don't know your age and would not ask it, but check all of these out to see if they may have what you are looking for:

Covenant House Hotline:(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr/>

Many counseling lines are specific to local areas and/or specific to a certain problem or group, for example, veterans. I have included the more 'general' types above, but if you need more specific information, providing me with more details, like if you are a member of a certain group, (i.e. a veteran), might open up additional opportunities for 24/7 counseling, which I could recommend.
