Blog for Missionary Care Starts

Helping Missionaries and their Agencies

Theresa Sidebotham and Brent Lindquist of Link Care Center start the Rock and Hard Place Blog to help missionary organizations with member care-related legal and psychological issues. 

An attorney and a psychologist — those are going to be different points of view. We hope that those different points of view will give you depth perception, the way two eyes, looking from a slightly different angle, help you see the whole picture.

Brent and I are committed to building up the body of Christ in missions organizations.

Attorneys who specifically practice religious law for churches and ministries are not common. I may be almost unique, in that I grew up on the mission field and attended practically every possible type of school and home school. I was a military wife in Panama and the U.S. before my husband Bruce and I served 7 years in Sumatra, where our youngest was born. Shortly after that, our family benefited greatly from six months at Link Care, where I first met Brent. We learned to better love each other and our children (four boys and a variety of special needs).

After I graduated from law school, I spent several years working for judges on the Colorado Court of Appeals and then several years in the religious institutions practice at a large law firm before starting Telios Law this year.

Brent and I plan to enjoy our discussion of different issues in the body, and we hope you’ll join in, to agree, disagree, or bring up new points.
