Membership

Affiliate Churches pay an annual membership fee to New England Pastoral Institute which is calculated as follows:

  • 150 or more members - $365.00
  • less than 150 members - $2.00 per member

By participating in the Congregational Affiliate Program, member churches integrate professional counseling and consulting services into their local ministries. Affiliate members by-pass the financial, legal, and professional expenditures required to establish and maintain these resources on their own. New England Pastoral Institute encourages and extends the Affiliate Church's mission outreach and ministry.
