Our biblical counseling ministry serves those who want to learn about biblical counseling as well as those who need biblical counseling. Biblical counseling trains the church to do the work of biblical counseling, while also offering biblical counseling to church members and our community. Biblical counseling exists because Christians are broken and need help, and because other Christians love them and know God’s Word is the solution.
