Pastoral Care and Counseling

Pastoral Care & Counseling

 

Throughout God's story, we see that hurt, pain, brokenness, and sin have been part of the human experience after Adam and Eve chose to disobey God. We also believe that pastoral care and/or professional counseling can be a helpful way for us to process through the effects of sin and pain in our lives.

 

We believe Jesus came to undo all the effects of Adam and Eve's choice. He came to redeem and restore "all things" (Colossians 1:18–20). Jesus' work of redemption is full and complete and has far-reaching implications for every human being. Therefore when others express a need for counseling, we affirm the truth that the gospel addresses every challenge they are facing.

 

The only question that remains is, "What is the best context for a person to be immersed in a gospel perspective that will help address his or her challenges?" We believe that God has designed the church body in such a way that the needs of people can be met by the body. We believe that a life filled with the Holy Spirit, actively involved in a local church, and participating in small groups, coupled with pastoral care & counseling is the way to healing from life's hurts.

However, we understand that there are some problems and circumstances that require more intentional care and shepherding. For these instances, we may be able to offer one-on-one pastoral care and counseling.
