Biblical counseling at Patterson Park Church exists to provide spiritual, emotional, and relationship supportive services to individuals, couples, families, and children who attend Patterson Park Church or who are approved to receive counseling at Patterson Park Church. 

We counsel in a way that seeks to bring about Holy Spirit-transformed lives through the help and hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We combine biblical counseling skills and scriptural principles in a unique approach to helping others with life problems.  Our approach is to equip an individual or couple/family with the principles and skills to live life well.  We believe the best method of growth is within a community of a local church with other people and pastoral oversight.  Should an individual with no church home or no spiritually significant history desire counseling, we would consider it our joy to discuss how God can meet the need of their heart.
