Jersey Village 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.
The counselors at Jersey Village Baptist Biblical Counseling Center are available to help. Speaking the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15), JVBC Biblical Counseling provides Biblically-based analysis and instruction for couples, individuals and families struggling with spiritual, emotional and relational issues. Counseling is available for adolescents (14-18 years old accompanied by parent or guardian), singles, and married adults.
