When using the term counseling, especially Biblical Counseling, the possibility of misunderstanding and preconceived ideas exists. While the staff at Christian Life Ministries does provide counsel, much of what is done could be considered discipleship. The ultimate purpose of this discipleship is to make Jesus Christ personal and relevant to the individual by helping them come to a greater understanding of the grace of God and the life changing quality of the Word of God. This is done in harmony with our mission statement and statement of faith. We are not "licensed counselors" nor do we represent ourselves as such.
The initial appointment is usually scheduled for 60-90 minutes. This allows time for the counselor to explain the overall process involved in the counseling sessions. Time will also be given for the client to ask questions regarding their counseling experience including the frequency of visits.
As a ministry, our priority is to help people deal effectively with those issues for which they are seeking counsel. We do not want finances to be an obstacle to anyone seeking help. For this reason there is no set fee for counseling services. However, we do ask each person to thoughtfully and prayerfully consider what they believe they can contribute to compensate their counselor and to help with the operating expenses of the ministry. The counselor will discuss this with the client in greater depth during the initial session. Additional costs may be incurred for CD's ($5.00) and/or books as appropriately priced.
