Pastoral Counseling

One of my great joys is to be able to provide pastoral counseling services as an outreach ministry of the congregation I serve as pastor – Elpis Christian Church.

In the language of the New Testament, Greek, Elpis means “expectant hope” and that is exactly what we hope to provide through this ministry.  Now using the framework of Celebrate Recovery,

I offer individual and group opportunities to deal with the “hurts, hang-ups and habits” that can cause problems for anyone seeking to live a full and free life as a follower of Christ.

This faith-based counseling is provided absolutely free of charge.  Any donations received to help underwrite the ministry are most appreciated – but none are necessary.  For more information, call our church office at 804-556-4600 and I will return your call as soon as possible.  You can also easily access these services via our secure client portal, found here at our Elpis Christian Church Care Ministry link.

I also enjoy providing Christian coaching and spiritual direction to those who are not currently in  crisis but simply desire to explore their life from a faith perspective and grow deeper in their life of faith. 

I would love to have a conversation with you about how we might be of help.  You can call me at 804-556-4600 or use the contact form below.

NOTE: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic I am now offering telechaplaincy services – that is pastoral counseling, Christian coaching and spiritual direction via telephone, Skype, Zoom, and Facetime.

I look forward to hearing from you.
