Counseling Ministry

The counseling ministry at Calvary is a preventive, therapeutic, and support ministry designed to meet the emotional and spiritual concerns of people in our community. We are not a professional counseling center but we do believe that mentorship is a powerful way to assist others in a hurting and disconnected society. One heart touching another heart can create life-changing power from God to affect change in those who are hurting or desire a touch of His healing compassion. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere of learning and support to provide care for those who are hurting as well as preventing future problems through mentorship and teaching.

Other elements of the counseling ministry include periodic seminars and classes designed to educate on relevant issues regarding emotional and spiritual health as well as relationship success. Support groups are also a helpful way to help people with various issues.
