How did IC4U-Intensive Care for You come about? Well…in August of 2012, I decided to get a cup of tea and snuggle up with a good read. Little did I know that the text would ignite a passion in me to serve leaders and their families. As I read, “How to Keep the Pastor You Love” by Jane Rubietta, Intensive Care for You was conceived, birthed, and conceptualized. Our soft launch was in 2014, our official launch in 2016, and God continues to favor us!
I am grateful for a dedicated, committed team that is tapped into the mission and vision of IC4U.
It is an honor to serve you as first responders. We are here to attend your urgent care needs with the same quality of service you dedicate to those you serve.
In His Majesty’s Service,
Lynne C. Parker, Vision Steward™ and Founder IC4U-Intensive Care for You, Inc.
"Servant leaders are often expected to do a lot with very little spiritual and emotional support. The consequences of those expectations have proven devastating as indicated in the rise in clergy burnout and even suicide. For that reason IC4U is a needed and timely endeavor."

You are the Champions We Serve
Servant leaders, servant families and leadership teams are a part of an invisible demographic: the underserved. Often, ministry excellence is the trade-off for high-stress levels, health and wellness issues and unreasonable family sacrifices: all allegedly for the purpose of the kingdom. They are in the spiritual trenches, on behalf of ministry and community. In many instances they are our champions; underrated and under celebrated.
IC4U-Intensive Care for You, Inc. exists to serve the servants, our unheralded heroes that unyieldingly sacrifice to facilitate our psychological, physiological and spiritual health. Our team is dedicated to providing para ministry services such as:
Rest management solutions for leaders, families and teams via online and on-site informational and educational sessions.
Online and on-site communication in secure environments to address challenges exclusive to servant leaders, servant families and support teams.
Prayer care to undergird underserved leadership and support populations.
Non-clinical one-on-one consultation.
Availability of supplemental resolution resources.
Confidentiality with no third party affiliation or information sharing.
Our organization promotes increased awareness to resolve social, professional, and spiritual conflicts experienced by community and ministry Servant Leaders, Servant Families, and Care teams. When you need to deactivate stress and recharge, when you need restoration and refuge, you need IC4U.
