We were made to live under the counsel of God and therefore we need to surround ourselves with voices that carry His counsel into our lives. By nature, says counselor and author Paul Tripp, we are “interpreters” of every situation or fact, but one of our problems is that we don’t always interpret life correctly. This means we always need counsel. Furthermore, there are times in life when we need help working through challenging issues and circumstances.
Though our pastoral staff is not committed to long term counseling, we refer those who seek biblical counseling to counselors including the ones listed below. Each with a private counseling practice that has individual fee-based sessions.
As counselors they can help with:
- Eating disorders
- Physical abuse
- Conflict resolution
- Personal identity issues
- Any kind of personal losses
- Spiritual life
- Marital problems or divorce
- Family conflict, teen rebellion
- Depression, grief or anxiety
- Singles' issues
“I am not alone. I have found a place in LFAC where truth is spoken, where my heart can heal, where the Spirit moves and works through counselors, volunteers and broken people who have said ‘Yes’ to God. I feel safe, comforted and free with others who are in process, walking beside me in prayer and support. I thank God for this safe haven with people I can grow with.”
