Care at Kensington
Sometimes we need a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on, or a listening ear. When crisis hits, your first point of contact is our Campus Care Providers. They're trained to get the proper information so our Care teams can step in and better care for you. If you need assistance, call during business hours at 248.786.0600 and ask for a Campus Care Provider. We're ready to help.
Pastoral Care Team
Members of our Pastoral Care Team are trained by the nationally known Stephen Ministry program and are compassionate listeners who walk alongside others to provide skilled and distinctly Christian care in times of need. They can't promise to have all the answers, but they can promise their focused support. To receive care from one of our Pastoral Care Team members, call us at 248.786.0600 and ask for a Campus Care Provider - they can get the process started.

At Kensington, we think marriage is a great idea and one of God's best ways of helping us grow. But like everything worthwhile it requires regular care and feeding. Whether your marriage is thriving, barely surviving or somewhere in between, click here for resources and ideas on strengthening your most important relationship.
Counselors We Trust
Sometimes we need a guide to help us through a hard time, and distinctly Christian counseling can be your best investment. We recommend that you interview several counselors before making a final selection. We also believe that Jesus is at the center of any healing process, but it can be helped by a knowledgeable counselor. If you're looking for professional help in your marriage, family, or personal life, look here for a list of counseling centers in your area that we know and trust.
If you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, it may be hard to feel optimistic about anything. GriefShare, a 13-week study to guide you through grief and loss is open to all. GriefShare is offered twice a year at both our Troy and Orion Campuses. Our next session begins in January and will run from 7-9pm. Each session, led by people who have experienced it themselves, includes a video seminar featuring interviews with top experts in the field, along with small group discussion. Register here.
