Join the legal membership that is proactively preparing and protecting counseling ministries across the country.
Counseling ministries are critical to the health of their patients and to the health of the Church. But recently, some are attempting to insert themselves into the counseling relationship.
As the culture changes, Christian counseling ministries face a challenging future.
Some proposed legislation has gone so far as to threaten the free speech of these ministries, claiming ministries are behaving fraudulently by counseling based on biblical truths about marriage, sexuality, and gender. Some counselors even face censorship when it comes to guiding patients who desire to live consistent with their immutable sex.
The counseling you provide is becoming more necessary as the culture drifts. But it’s also becoming more likely that ministries like yours will face legal challenges that threaten your mission.
Without proper legal advice and safeguards in place, counseling ministries may be caught off guard by legal challenges. These new burdens and pitfalls can distract from the core mission of your ministry, and even put that ministry in jeopardy.
Counseling ministries can further their preparedness through a partnership with Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). ADF has been on the forefront of legal issues impacting the religious freedom of individuals, businesses, schools, churches, and nonprofits for 25 years. We have seen the changes in our culture lead to legal challenges that threaten the ability of Christians to freely live and share the Gospel.
ADF Ministry Alliance exists to provide counseling – and other – ministries with the religious liberty help you need, when you need it. Membership can help prepare and protect your ministry, without the traditionally high cost of robust legal consultation, litigation, and support.

To Prepare Ministries for the Changing Culture
We review your ministry’s governing documents, policies,employment documents and more. Then we recommend changes and best practices tailored to protect religious liberty.
Reach out to our attorneys whenever you have legal questions about your ministry’s religious liberty. If you don’t know if your question constitutes a legal issue, or even if it has religious-freedom implications, you still have access – and our attorneys can help guide you to next steps.
Ensure Christian ministries like yours have the legal representation needed for a religious-freedom issue. If necessary, we can even help your ministry with these legal matters – including litigation – at no additional cost.
Ensure ministries have the legal representation they need by committing to membership.
Thorough ministry documents can serve as positive evidence in the courtroom. Additionally, members face peace of mind when confronting legal issues or changes. ADF Ministry Alliance also helps clarify how your ministry is distinctly Christian.
ADF Ministry Alliance membership makes religious freedom preparation and protection affordable.
The price of an ADF Ministry Alliance membership is based your ministry's annual revenue. Membership is a yearly agreement.
Your ministry won’t be charged an hourly rate for contacting ADF attorneys, and it won't be expected to pay an additional fee should we need to litigate a religious liberty case. The annual membership fee covers all help we provide to our members. That way, we can help your ministry and others whenever you need us.

Q: Why does pricing for institutions of higher education differ from the pricing for other ministry types?
A: Institutions of higher education experience greater complexity and diversity of religious freedom legal issues than do other ministry types. As a result, ADF attorneys have to devote considerably more time to ensure your institution is legally prepared, to the greatest extent possible, for the religious freedom threats it could face.
