Biblical counseling

Our Soul Care counseling team offers counseling to the members of College Park Church that is rooted in and informed by the Word of God. We believe God’s Word is sufficient to address the struggles and trials of life (2 Timothy 3:16). If you would like to request Biblical counseling (soul care) from College Park Church, please give careful attention to the following items:

  1. On occasion, request for counseling outnumber available counselors. When this happens we will close certain categories of counseling for a season. Once the waiting list goes back down we will reopen counseling for that category. Below is the current status of each waiting list category. Also, be aware there are only daytime hours available to women seeking individual counseling. 
    • Counseling for Members is OPEN 
    • Counseling for Regular Attenders seeking individual male counseling is OPEN
    • Counseling for Regular Attenders seeking couples counseling is OPEN
    • Counseling for Regular Attenders seeking individual female counseling is OPEN 
  2. Please read the Facts About Biblical Counseling and note any questions that you might like to ask at the beginning of your first session. Please read this before completing step two.
  3. Carefully read the Consent to Counsel form. 
  4. Complete the Personal Data Inventory (PDI) form. Once you complete the PDI we will send you a small booklet called Christ and Your Problems in the mail. If you are requesting counseling for your child or teen, please complete the Personal Data Inventory: Kids and Teens.
  5. While you wait to get placed with a counselor, read Christ and Your Problems and complete the homework that will be sent with it. 

If you have difficulty in completing any of these steps, please contact Kelly Alexander, and she will be glad to answer any questions you might have.
