Biblical Counseling

Jersey Village Biblical Counseling Ministry

Jersey Village Baptist Church Counseling Ministry is designed for members and attenders of JVBC as well as to other members of the community, and is offered without cost (except costs for resources used).

Our society is experiencing family breakdowns and personal problems in epidemic proportions as biblical values are being undermined and have come under attack. Many are in need of counsel, discipleship and mentoring in specialized ways. With this realization and for this reason, JVBC Counseling Ministry exists to both courageously and compassionately "speak the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15) and to assist in tangibly, practically and biblically addressing "issues" that keep people from experiencing wholeness and peace in life.

No matter what issues the individual, married couple or family face, counselors at JVBC stand ready to assess those needs, provide biblical encouragement and instruction, apply love, grace and mercy, and help to implement the remedies God offers through His Word. The prescription is to teach those who come for counseling to apply biblical truth to virtually every inorganic (non-physical) problem they face.

Counseling is available for adolescents (7-18 years old, with permission of and accompanied by parent(s)/guardian), single and married adults. Younger children's needs will be discussed and addressed by counselors with a specialization in early childhood. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult during counseling appointments.

Who are the counselors?

All counselors have either received formal training in biblical counseling from the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC) or the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC), national organizations committed to the quality of biblical counseling offered by their members, or are receiving such similar training. Some are certified by IABC and ACBC as biblical counselors while others are pursuing such certification. All counselors continue to avail themselves of ongoing training in the realm of biblical counseling.
