The Pasadena Community Church Christian Counseling Ministry has been a part of our church’s caring history for more than 30 years. Many lives have been blessed through this Ministry. Our counselors are licensed professionals or registered interns with graduate training in Christian counseling who help people with life issues of depression, grief, marital difficulties, stress management and addictions, among other concerns.
Our Christian Counseling Ministry is highly confidential and makes use of Biblical principles as well as appropriate therapeutic techniques for growing in practical skills for living. While there is a fee for counseling services, no one is turned away. We accept most insurance companies and employee assisted programs (EAP).
If you have questions about whether Christian counseling is for you or someone you know, you may call for an appointment and come in for one session to experience what working with a counselor would be like over time. For information and/or appointments, call: Debby Lewis at (727) 381-2499 x 225
Our Counseling Ministry works closely with the Network Institute of Christian Counselors. Let us know if you would prefer to see one of these Network Counselors, and we will help you with the referral.
God’s ways work! Make the call to grow in practical skills for living.
