Biblical Counseling

Get hope and help when you’re stuck.

Everyone needs counseling…

We offer Biblical Counseling as a free service to those who call Grace Fellowship Church their home. We believe that the Bible has answers for everyday life and we offer it without cost because we want everyone that the Lord has brought to our church to live a life filled with joy and peace (Galatians 5:22-23), growing to know Jesus as Savior and Lord.

The Process

Fill out the online counseling form

When you fill out the online counseling form, you’ll give our team an idea of what you’re struggling with and which counselor we might best pair you up with.

 

Prepare while you wait

Change and help can happen even before you get assigned to a counselor. Check out the While You Wait section and prepare your heart and mind to receive counseling.

 

Intake Meeting

This is where your campus pastor or a member of the counseling ministry will meet up with you to assess where you are and who might be the best fit to be your counselor.

 

Get assigned to a counselor

Typically, after a few weeks of prayer and consideration, we will pair you up with a counselor that will be most available and suited to the situation you are dealing with.


Begin the counseling process

After you’re assigned a counselor, you’ll schedule a time to meet and begin the process of growing and changing.

 

Prepare While You Wait

Attend Sunday Morning Services

Attend Sunday morning services regularly at one of our three campuses.

Join a Community Group

We are not meant to do life alone. It’s essential for you, no matter what season of life, to be in community with other believers. Check out the Community Groups page to see what group might be a good fit for your schedule.

Start Praying

Pray these verses from Psalm 139:23-24:

Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!

Read the Bible Daily

Take your time and go through passages slowly. Look for 3-5 things you learn about who God is, what He does, what He likes/doesn’t like, and what He promises. And be sure to have a pen and paper ready to write these things down.
