The Ministry of Congregational Care and Counseling (MCCC) was established in 2000 to address the emotional and spiritual concerns of our disciples. Counseling works in concert with worship, preaching, prayer, Scriptural study, and other resources God provides to bring about healing to our community of believers. How do you know if you might benefit from counseling? Consider whether you struggle with any of the following challenges:
- Frequent, intense, or long-lasting changes in mood
- Worry or fear that occupies your mind most of the time.
- Problems communicating effectively with others.
- Physical complaints that do not have a medical explanation.
- History of trauma, abuse, or neglect.
- Difficulty functioning in job, family, or community roles/relationships
Members of our staff occasionally provide consultation to persons and families who may be seeking more information or guidance about a specific situation. For example, while psychological testing and evaluations are not provided, we can give guidance to the process of seeking an evaluation, interpreting its results, or following through on recommendations.
Counseling and Consultation Appointments
Our licensed staff of mental health professionals and supervised, master's-level interns provides confidential counseling services at no cost to our disciples.
