III. PASTORAL COUNSELING

Pre-Marital Counseling

For those who are about to get married, Living Hope Community Church recommends that you receive pre-marital counseling through your local church with one of the pastors.

 

Pastoral Counseling

For many marital issues, Living Hope Community Church recommends that you begin with the spiritual counselors immediately around you first. That may be your pastor, shepherd or elder. If an issue is a bit more complex, the pastor may recommend a professional therapist.
