What is Christian Counseling?

Christian counseling is making use of practices, models, and techniques that allow for Jesus Christ centered counseling.  This means that the core belief of the Christian counselor is that true and lasting healing comes from God through Jesus Christ.  Therefore, the goal of the Christian counselor is to help their clients (counselees) develop healthy relationships with God through the knowledge of Jesus Christ, instructing them in the "how to's" of appropriately applying the Word of God (The Holy Bible) to their daily lives.  Specifically, to their issues of challenge that are presented in the counseling setting.

Who is considered a Christian Counselor?

Psychiatrists, psychologists, professionally trained counselors, social workers, mental health workers, pastors, church leaders, lay counselors, and those designated by their particular church denomination or organization of involvement, as counselor to others.  They have received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord of their lives and live accordingly.

The mission of the Finner-Williams Christian Counseling Ministry, Inc. is:

  • to provide affordable and free Christian counseling and mental health services on a sliding fee schedule to those who lack medical insurance and financial resources.

  • to aid the Christian counselor (pastor, lay leader, lay counselor, deacon, elder, church mother, etc.) in his or her mode of service to others.

  • to work in conjunction with other Christian counseling organizations in building bridges between the African-American community and the Caucasian and other communities of America to foster unity in service provision.
