Providing a proactive, faith-based Employee Assistance Program to employers who care for the emotional, social, and spiritual health of their employees.

NEW HOPE CONSULTING offers corporations a unique proactive Employee Assistance Program. Applying a distinctive approach that emphasizes the total person. NHC enables employers to care for the spiritual, social and emotional needs of their employees.

Caring is what NEW HOPE CONSULTING is all about.

NHC contracts with corporations large and small, providing a Corporate Chaplain service that helps employees and their family members as all or part of an Employee Assistance Program.

Professionally trained, NHC chaplains possess secular work experience as well as strong educational and ministry backgrounds. NHC serves individuals of all religious faith preferences, or those with none.

What We Do

Worksite Relationships: NHC offers the services of a Corporate Chaplain and Pastoral Counselor for all employees and their immediate family members. Whatever religious preference each employee has, NHC will develop caring worksite relationships as needed, without additional charge to those employees or the client company. 

A chaplain will visit the worksite at least one time per week making brief contact with every employee. If there are issues a particular employee needs to discuss with the chaplain, an appointment is set for off work hours. We will continue to develop relationships and maintain contact with personnel through ongoing worksite visits. In special situations, NHC can arrange additional interaction through telephone communications, employee meetings or other means approved by management. 

A 24-hour, year-round Chaplain Emergency On-Call service is also available for crisis intervention, at the discretion of the company's management.

Pastoral Counseling: Whatever the scope of each family's problems or concerns, NHC has a network of qualified and caring outsource providers that can help. NHC will even design a Professional Referral Service, and act as its coordinator, for specialized types of assistance to employees and/or family members with long-term needs. 

Confidential pastoral counseling is available for problem issues, including but not limited to: 

Marriage and Re-marriage 


Serious Illnesses 

AIDS and HIV-related Illnesses

 Death and Dying 

Conflict Resolution 

Sexual Harassment 

Spousal or Child Abuse 

Drug & Alcohol Dependency

About Chaplaincy

What Is Chaplaincy? In any given year at least 15 percent of the workforce--or about one in every seven employees--are likely to be faced with personal problems that significantly affect their job performance. These problems could be marital or family problems, alcohol or drug abuse, job stress, financial or legal problems, or some other difficulty. The world of business and industry is an integral part of the world that God loves. 

Most people spend the bulk of their waking hours on the job. As the instrument of God's love, faith communities seek ways to embody that love in arenas where the critical issues of livelihood, vocation, and work are forged. Ministry in the workplace addresses the needs of both persons and systems. It is basically a concern for the well-being of people at work. This means a sensitivity for those needs that arise from certain situations: moral dilemmas, stress related to rapid change, fear of termination, and a host of other tensions.


incorporates a variety of means for ministry in the workplace. These include any or several of the following: confidential counseling, crisis intervention, management consultation, programs for worship or prayer, referral to other professionals and agencies, training and education for employees and supervisors, employee/community/church relations and programs, special events scheduled in response to needs which arise in the workplace. Whatever the scope of each family's problems or concerns, NHC has a network of qualified and caring outsource providers that can help.

Work is an opportunity for ministry

Through sixteen years of business experience Steve Wilkins recognized the dire need for ministry to step outside the walls of the church and step into the workplace. Steve founded NEW HOPE CONSULTING in 1997 in an effort to combine his business skills with his ministries objectives.

NHC provides face-to-face, 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week Chaplain availability to management and employees alike.

A large percentage of people today do not have any relationship with a church or organized religious group. Often rushed for time, their beliefs and personal needs take a back seat to the meetings, deadlines and agendas of the workplace.

Yet, the problems at home don't go away...they are simply brought, as emotional baggage, to work each day. Our mission is to reach out and bring our ministry to where it is needed most, and where it can make a meaningful difference.
