In merely 15 days of counseling, we have had the privilege to minister to the following types of people with these results:
10 different biblical counselors have worked in teams of 2 (or 3!) to serve 45 different people
3 people have become Christians and 2 more have re-committed their lives to Christ
100.5 hours of total discipleship/counseling in 60 total sessions (avg. length of a session is 1.5 hours)
Most people have been sent to us by a friend or a pastor! We have done NO ADVERTISING and we are booked solid for next week. We are currently praying for a third location to better serve others. Our Board of Directors will vote on a location next week.
It’s exciting when you think that we only have two minimally paid staff persons, little in our bank account, no advertising, and are only 7 months old at this point.
Plus, we have the upcoming opportunity to train 10 people in biblical counseling and will be able to give them counseling experience after they complete the training!!!! We are building a biblical counseling ministry at 2 churches and have a few other churches interested in our ministry, also.
Praise the Lord!
