Counseling & Spiritual Care
We are Here for You!
Bible Center Church recognizes that no one is exempt from life’s problems. Resources are available to help you on your journey.
Life-on-Life Spiritual Care
Our desire, hope, and intention is for our church as a whole to become a place where fellow Christians provide spiritual care through community, encouragement, and authentic conversations.
- Join a group today! We offer several support groups.
- Celebrate Recovery is a place to work through our hurts, habits, and hang-ups in a healthy Christ-centered way.
- If you have found yourself on the other side of divorce, our Divorce Care group will be a great source of support and encouragement.
Pastors, staff, and leaders are available to provide spiritual care with members and faithful attenders who are experiencing difficult circumstances resulting in grief, spiritual discouragement, or relational discord. Contact Pastor Richard Thompson who will connect you with the leader who is most qualified to serve you and your particular request.
Our lives and our world are filled with brokenness, grief, marital stress, addictions, and emotional/relational issues. In many circumstances, our suffering can feel overwhelming.
Professional support and intervention are available:
- If you believe that your struggles are physical or primarily psychological, we encourage you to first call your doctor.
- Thankfully, we offer professional spiritual care through the biblical counselors listed below—you can contact them directly.
