Purpose and Mission
The purpose of the Biblical Counseling Ministry is to provide windows of “Hope” (Corinthians 10:13), “Help” (Isaiah 61; Psalm 46:1) and “Healing” (Ephesians 4:22-24) by restoring God’s people to fellowship with Him through His Son. The Biblical Counseling Ministry accomplishes this with a three-fold process:
- By counseling in a caring manner to assist individuals, couples, and families to work through the issues in their lives, know Christ personally, and learn to live victoriously.
- By training and supervising others to counsel in the same manner.
- By supporting individuals who are hurting and moving them toward the process of healing.
The Ministry meets the First Monday of each month from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Counselors are available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday between 6:00pm and 8:30pm. Some Counselors may be available on Saturday morning and early afternoon before 2:00pm.
The Biblical Counseling Ministry also conducts seminars and workshops to educate Christians on the use of Scripture in solving problems God’s way. Call (248) 350-2081, Extension 1 for additional information.
