Christian Lay Counseling
James 1:1-2reminds us that the trials we encounter can produce endurance, and help make us real and whole in Christ. Counselors can help bear the burden of coping with sudden/unexpected change and or stand with you in times of need. When one part of the body is hurt or injured it affects the whole body: Family members, extended family, friends, and neighbors.
As members of the body of Christ, Christians have a special responsibility to bear a message of hope. Thus, Christian lay counseling can be very helpful to re-orient our perspectives in a gentle, humble way while helping with the capacity to endure and rebuild.
Lay counseling is available at no cost to IBC members and on a case by case basis to regular IBC attenders and all urgent needs. Care and Counseling office maintains a large database of local area Christian professional counselors. We would be happy to suggest referrals.
