We are here to Help!

The Pastoral Counseling Ministry has pastoral counselors available to meet with sons and daughters of RWC who are dealing with personal or family life challenges. The Pastoral Counseling Team is dedicated to providing a compassionate listening ear and sound Biblical advice.

What is Pastoral Counseling?

  • Pastoral counseling is confidential, Bible-based counseling by one trained and experienced in both pastoral and counseling ministry.
  • Pastoral counseling is not designed to treat severe mental illness. We do not perform psychiatric or psychological evaluations, nor prescribe medication.
  • The pastoral counselor uses prayer and scripture to welcome God’s presence into the healing process.
  • A typical counseling session lasts one hour. After the first meeting, the counselor will make recommendations for follow-up appointments and participation in other support ministries at RWC.
  • Because pastoral counseling is only one part of the overall ministry to individuals and families at RWC, counselees are encouraged to participate in weekly worship services, Leadership Academy classes, Mission 411 Home groups, and fellowships at RWC in order to achieve the maximum benefit from pastoral counseling.
  • Counseling appointments are available free of charge to RWC members.
  • All of our pastoral counselors are bilingual in English and Spanish.
