CARE & COUNSELING

Group Finder

At Faith Promise, the majority of care and ministry happens through Groups. However, we do have several ministries that exist outside of groups to help facilitate care to our congregation and community.

Counseling

The Counseling Ministry is designed to offer short-term Christian counseling to members and regular attenders of Faith Promise Church. Our ministry team includes Dr. Ann O’Connor, Ph.D., and Candis Cochran, MA, LPC. Graduate student interns may also provide some counseling services.

Because of limited resources, counseling for people who do not attend Faith Promise will be limited to one consultation appointment.

The counselors at Faith Promise encourage people to identify specific goals for counseling, and counseling sessions are focused on these goals. We provide individual counseling To adults and adolescents who are 14 years old and older, as well as premarital and couples’ counseling. We will provide referral information for younger children. We also work closely with the Celebrate and Stephen Ministries at Faith Promise Church.

Sessions are scheduled by appointment and are available online and in-person. Evening appointments are the most requested and can book quickly. We do not have appointment times available on the weekends.

To make an appointment, please call the church office at 251-2590, ext. 0, and request an appointment. Everyone will be asked to complete forms online before your first session. You will be emailed specific links to the necessary forms, and the office protocol will be explained when you make your first appointment.

The Stephen Ministry

The Stephen Ministry is an internationally recognized Christian care ministry which began in 1975 and is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. It has served more than 1.5 million people in over 13,000 churches and 180 denominations in 32 different countries. The Faith Promise Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-on-one, Christ-centered care and support to people experiencing difficult times in their lives such as loss of a loved one, job loss, terminal illness, and divorce. The ministry pairs individuals with a Stephen Minister who will come alongside them to provide emotional and spiritual care for as long as the need persists.

Stephen Ministers are selected, trained, and supervised to provide effective Christian care. After an initial fifty hours of training, Stephen Ministers are assigned a person with whom they meet once a week for about an hour. Stephen Ministers also meet once a month for supervision, support, and continuing education.
