Our Gifts

Our educations equip us for our work in the counseling profession. Additionally God has called us and equipped us with His word, His Holy Spirit, and the capacity for discernment. We desire to express God's mercy, grace, and forgiveness as we encourage people to achieve their God-given purpose. Our gifts enable wounded, lost, and discouraged people to look inside themselves. Examining painful relationships and unhealthy patterns of dealing with life's inevitable problems begins the change process.
