God has called the church to minister to others for His glory. The St John Biblical Counseling Center exists with that calling in mind, and seeks to equip believers in effectively ministering God’s Word to hurting people. As first our own lives in Christ are enriched and strengthened by the sufficient and authoritative Word of God through the empowering of the Holy Spirit, we also grow in effective ministry to others.
We understand that there are times in life where you just need a helping hand. In fact, many people are doing very well in some parts of their life while struggling in others. Now might be the time when you need someone to come alongside and encourage you from the Bible. The mission of St. John's biblical counseling ministry is to equip you to deal with the issues of life by the transforming power of Jesus Christ for the glory of God. Our counseling is grounded in the Word of God (2 Tim 3:16-17) and aimed at the building up of the saints (Col 1:28; Rom 15:14).
