Welcome to Outward Biblical Counseling. We are grateful that you are considering welcoming us into your life at this time. It is never easy to ask for help, and we admire the courage, faith, and humility this first step represents on your part. It is our prayer that God will bless this step and use our time together to build more hope and direction into your life.
Our goal in this counseling ministry is to make the Gospel paramount by connecting people to the life-transforming power of Jesus Christ. We are confident that through the Scriptures and the power of His Spirit, God has given us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4). It is our joy to help real people, with real problems, using the Bible.
Our commitment as a church is to offer counseling services to both church members and our friends in the local community. Your counseling will be biblical, pastoral counseling in which the Scriptures are held as the final authority in all matters. If you are not sure that you are interested in biblical counseling, you will have the option of attending one or two sessions to discover how biblical counseling may help you.
The next step in the counseling process is to complete the intake form below. We have designed this to allow the counseling process to start smoothly and help us connect you with the resources that best fit your needs. This counseling form is designed to (1) help us to get to know you in a comprehensive, holistic, and efficient manner and (2) help you organize your thoughts about your counseling objectives. Please allow 30 minutes to complete this form. Please read through everything carefully, and contact us with any questions (971-599-3775).
We are grateful to be able to serve you and look forward to walking with you through God’s agenda for your life.
We believe that the Bible speaks to all of life and to all of its problems, but it takes careful thought and prayerful wisdom to know how to make those connections. Your counselor is a Christian with special training and experience in applying the truth of the Bible to life.
Your counseling will be biblical, pastoral counseling in which the Scriptures are held as the final authority in all matters.
Most importantly, we believe that the Bible ultimately points us to a Person - the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that real change comes when people learn to see themselves and their problems in the context of a loving, vital relationship with Christ. This does not mean that you must be a Christian to profit from our counseling, although we believe that deep and lasting change is brought about only by God Himself. Because of this, we do not use the Bible in a superficial or heavy-handed way.
When necessary we will work with your physician or other professionals to ensure you receive the appropriate medical care in conjunction with the counseling services you receive.
We do not charge for the counseling services offered through Outward Biblical Counseling; however, there is a one-time $15 fee requested to cover all resource materials and provide training to our biblical counselors.
If you'd like to make a donation to Outward Church above and beyond the $15 fee, you can find ways to give here.
Based on your intake form, you will be matched with one of our trained biblical counselors. Our counseling team consists of pastors, lay counselors, and trainees under the direction of the church elders who provide guidance and oversight. The staff of Outward Church Biblical Counseling Ministry will supervise the trainees and lay volunteers. A biblical counselor trainee may be present in any counseling session for training and observation.
