Elyse Fitzpatrick

It should go without saying that it’s probably not a good idea for men (especially pastors) to be closeted away with women (who are not their wives) engaged in deep, heart-revealing discussion. In this session crafted primarily for pastors and leaders, Fitzpatrick will unfold not only the dangers to pastors inherent in long-term, cross-gender counseling, but also the dangers to the women they counsel, as well as steps pastors can take to protect themselves while loving the women God has placed in their care.
