Life Counseling Center began formally in the summer of 2008; however, our roots go back to the late 1990’s.
At that time there were several ministers and directors on staff at Chapelgate Presbyterian Church who were also trained counselors. They began to counsel informally with members and visitors, as well as people from the church’s addiction, divorce, and single parent ministries. Over the years the need for counseling continued to grow.
By 2007 it became clear that God was calling us to not only add counselors but to centrally locate the counselors, and dedicate a part of the building for that purpose. In the spring of 2008, work began to build a counseling center by converting a large childcare room into 3 counseling offices and a conference room. By the summer of that year we moved into our new office space. Counseling needs continued to increase and in January of 2012 we added on additional counseling rooms.
Today we are grateful to continue to be housed in Chapelgate where we have a team of biblical counselors caring for numerous people and families each week.
Life Counseling Center exists to provide people and churches with biblical counseling that is relationship based, gospel centered, and professionally competent. Our ultimate goal is that people know and rely on Christ’s grace in order to step out into life with renewed faith and courage.
Our vision is to see people and churches equipped to live in light of the transforming hope of the Gospel in a way that brings healing, renewal, and peace.
