Welcome to the Counseling Ministry at Faith Bible Church (FBC). We are grateful that you have welcomed us into your life at this time. It is never easy to ask for help. We admire the courage, faith, and humility this first step represents on your part. It is our prayer that God will bless this step and use our time together to build more hope and direction into your life. We look forward to seeing our great God honored through all of our lives.

Is larger than a few one-on-one meetings with a counselor. Rarely does lasting change happen in isolation. We will encourage you to be involved in the life of your church in a variety of ways as we meet together (or here, at FBC if you do not have a permanent church home).
The counseling ministry consists of men and women, staff and non-staff, who have completed various levels of counseling training, and offer free personal or marital counseling to our members and community. This counseling is offered as a personal service, and not as a member of the FBC pastoral staff. *Training has been completed through Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC).
The counseling ministry at FBC is part of our service to our members and community. We do not charge for the counseling services offered. The graciousness and generosity of our members allows us to offer these services free of charge. We do ask for a one-time donation of $25 (made out to Faith Bible Church) to cover administrative costs. Also, there may be books and material you will be asked to purchase through the course of your counseling.
