We know there are times where you need to talk with someone about the issues that arise in life. Whether it’s the loss of a loved one or friction in a marriage, it’s best to invite qualified, experienced people into your life to help you navigate life’s challenges. We offer either pastoral counseling or professional counseling for you to find wholeness, help and healing.
Pastoral Counseling Pastoral Counseling
We provide individual and family support from a Christ-centered perspective in the areas of marriage, grief, life challenges, and relational conflict resolution.
Our pastors are trained in the skills of listening, clarifying and goal-setting, all undertaken through prayerful submission to the leading of God. The strength of our ministry rests in the power and knowledge of the Wonderful Counselor, the Holy Spirit, as He works in and through our lives according to His Word.
One of the most important steps an engaged couple should take is to participate in premarital counseling. Our pastors are certified facilitators in the Prepare-Enrich Assessment. Each couple will be asked to complete the assessment prior to the start of their counseling.
What is the Prepare-Enrich Assessment?
The Prepare-Enrich Assessment is an online survey that you take with your significant other to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your relationship. The Prepare-Enrich Assessment assists in facilitating the process, making sure the sessions cover all important areas of your relationship. The cost of this assessment is $35 per couple.
