Lay Biblical Counseling

The Lay Biblical Counseling Ministry has been developed to assist our pastoral team in providing care for our church community. We offer one-on-one counseling in a safe environment where you can experience God’s love, healing, hope and learn biblically based solutions that will support you in your growth in becoming a highly effective Christian.

If you are seeking Pastoral counseling, please call the administrative church offices at 650-625-1500 during normal business hours (9AM -5PM, closed on Mondays) and ask to speak with the Pastor of the day. Our lay counseling ministry is offered for life crisis, personal and relationship challenges. 

Our counselors provide encouragement, insight and biblical guidance to members during times of crisis, change or personal and family difficulties, by helping people find biblically based solutions to their problems. The ultimate goal of the ministry is to help persons to develop an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ that fulfill their deepest needs and desires. Counseling consists of one-on-one counseling with men and women who have been trained and equipped to apply biblical principles to all areas of life. Church counselors are paraprofessionals (not paid professional therapists). There are no fees involved in seeing a lay counselor.
