This ministry is called prayer ministry. It is considered a form of pastoral counseling, not professional counseling. I am an ordained minister, not licensed as a professional counselor. I work with you only as you choose to work with me.
God has seen fit to work with and through me in moving people toward freedom from spiritual, emotional, and even physical problems. It is, therefore, my expectation that He will help you through our time together. But I cannot control God or promise what He will do. I can only promise that I will do my best to work with God for your good and God’s glory. What usually happens in this type of ministry is that God brings a kind of “spurt” toward wholeness in each session. Sometimes additional work is necessary for a person to attain the complete freedom he or she and God desire. It may be advisable for the person to receive help from a professional counselor as well. I strongly advise this, especially in dealing with dysfunctional habits. It is always advisable for the person to actively pursue spiritual disciplines such as church attendance, prayer, Bible study, and worship. I am committed to keeping confidential whatever you share with me. I am, however, required by law to report to appropriate persons two kinds of things:
Any intent of a person to take harmful, dangerous, or criminal action against another person or him- or herself, or
Any act of child or elderly abuse or neglect.
If it appears that such notification needs to be given, that intention will be shared with you first.
To provide the appropriate legal protection, we ask that each person sign the following Statement of Release.
