The Restoration Biblical Counseling Ministry


“Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.”
Proverbs 11:14, NKJV


Who We Are
The Restoration Biblical Counseling Ministry (RBCM) is a faith-based, Christian counseling ministry whose vision is to restore hope, healing and faith through biblically based counseling.


Our mission is to provide free, short-term confidential counseling to individuals, families and small groups; to service the integral needs of our church family and community at large; and to inform and empower our church family and local community through focus group discussions and forums.


All sessions are highly confidential and typically end after eight one-to-one sessions. Potential counselees can range from children, young adults, adults and the elderly to singles, couples, single parents, families or small groups. Each counselee is paired with two highly skilled RBCM team members and may choose to meet at the church, at some predetermined location outside the church, by phone conference or a preferred social media platform like Zoom, Google chats, etc.


What We Do


The RBCM addresses the holistic needs and concerns of individuals with the hope of encouraging healthier lifestyle choices and decisions. Some of the areas we typically address, but are not limited to, include:

• Grief and Depression-Related Issues
• Low Self-Esteem and Social Challenges
• Personal and Professional Challenges
• Family and Marital Challenges
• Parental Guidance and Advice
• Spiritual and Ministry-Related Conflicts
• Behavioral Challenges and Conflicts


Occasionally, we partner with other ministries in the church as well as outside agencies and churches to sponsor live forums. These forums are designed to strengthen the lines of communication, encourage church stewardship, promote community service, connect individuals to resources both inside and outside the church, and bring awareness to prominent issues relating to an affecting the local church and community.


Why Seek the Help of a Faith-Based Counselor?
Because sometimes all we really need is someone to talk to, someone willing to listen and someone who can help guide us in the right direction.


Day-to-day challenges and the stresses of life can be overwhelming at times. It can make us bitter, frustrated and unable to cope mentally, emotionally and socially. When this level of frustration sets in, it can lead to unhealthy choices and a sense of hopelessness and helplessness that is terrifying.


The Restoration Biblical Counseling Ministry (RBCM) goes to great lengths to offer an alternative approach to counseling that is healthy, non-judgmental, and biblically based. Our approach centers around the goal of helping individuals to refocus, rethink, and redefine their own path to personal happiness, hope and healing through faith.
If you are experiencing a difficult challenge and need to talk to someone privately, please contact us! We are here to help you regain the confidence and assurance you need to succeed in everyday life!
