Our cost runs $70.00 per counseling session. This allows us to pay our counselors, provide office space, and meet all costs related to this ministry. That said, in over thirty-nine years of ministry, we have never turned anyone away because they could not make a full payment. Instead, we ask our counselees to donate what they can afford. If you need help, give us a call!
We have yet to find a problem or life situation that the Scriptures do not address. We are not saying that Biblical Counseling is always the whole answer. Sometimes there are health issues involved that require the services of a medical doctor. We have also used financial planners, debt counselors, and lawyers to help address various problems, as well as the essential ministry of faithful elders, deacons, and pastors – but the Lord Himself is always at the center of every situation.
There is not a happy ending to every problem. Some sicknesses are not healed. Some marriages do fail and some people do have to face financial ruin. Yet even in these situations, there is hope, strength, comfort, and forgiveness in Christ. The truths of God’s love and wisdom in Christ need to be made clear especially when life is hard. The Bible teaches that most of our problems are actually the result of sin, our own and other’s. Our desire is to view problems as Christ sees our problems, knowing that He has an answer for every situation we face. Any marriage can be restored, any relationship healed, every sin overcome in Jesus Christ. Certainly, change does not come instantly. It requires a lot of work from the counselor and the counselee. However, the real strength and wisdom come from the Lord Himself.
There are many other issues we have faced over the years; these are some common ones. Normally there is a mixture of problems. As counselors, we are aware that our wisdom and power are not sufficient, so we pray, and God is always faithful. As we study His Word and humbly seek His aid, He is faithful to minister to His people and bring glory to Himself!
