Expectant Hope Counseling and Coaching

One of our great joys is to be able to provide Spiritual Formation/Christian Life coaching and Biblical counseling services as an outreach ministry of 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.

This faith-based coaching and counseling is provided absolutely free of charge.  Any donations received to help underwrite the ministry are most appreciated – but none are necessary.

You can request counseling or coaching, including setting up your account through our secure portal, by clicking the link below (Note: This requires reviewing and signing our counseling/coaching agreement and filling out a personal data information form.)


If you already have set up your account, you can use the same link to access the portal to interact with your counselor/coach as needed.

Or, if you prefer, I would love to have a conversation with you about how we might be of help.  You can call and leave us a message at our church office number, 804-556-4600.  We will return the call as soon as possible.

We look forward to hearing from you.
