The purpose of the South Florida Association of Christian Counselors is to glorify God and serve others by helping pastors, Christians, and mental health professionals find professional Christian counselors who offer counseling services in specific areas (e.g., marital counseling, family counseling, substance abuse counseling, etc.). To this end SFACC provides an online referral network of Christian mental health providers. SFACC offers opportunities for members to participate in continuing education that is consistent with a Christian worldview, a forum for dialogue about how the mental health community can better serve the Body of Christ.  SFACC also looks for community wide initiatives that will encourage churches and therapists to work together to impact South Florida.

SFACC's History 

The South Florida Association of Christian Counselors (SFACC) was started in 2005 by faculty in the graduate Counseling program at Palm Beach Atlantic University who had a desire to help Christian counselors within South Florida meet each other and form an organization that would encourage Christian counselors to integrate their faith with their counseling practices.

The faculty also wanted to provide a vehicle for helping pastors become aware of Christian counselors with expertise in various types of counseling issues. Without a means of finding Christian counselors with various specialties, pastors often had no way of identifying Christian counselors with expertise in the areas their parishioners needed counseling.

In 2009 we revamped our membership criteria and developed an user-friendly website to facilitate online searches for Christian counselors according to category and for counselors to join and post their profiles on our online Counselor Directory.

Cook Children's hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, reported that three teens were hospitalized in May after taking up to 14 tablets. One 15-year-old girl on Oklahoma died from an overdose in August spurred by the challenge.
