Request biblical counseling

Thank you for your interest in receiving counseling through CrossPointe Community Church Biblical Counseling Ministry. Our counseling strives to be conscientiously and comprehensively Christ-Centered and based on Scripture. This involves understanding the nature and causes of our human difficulties. It also involves understanding the ways we are unlike Christ in our values, aspirations, desires, thoughts, feelings, choices, attitudes, actions and responses. Resolving life's difficulties includes being redeemed and justified through Christ, receiving God's forgiveness through Christ, and acquiring from Christ the enabling power to replace inappropriate patterns of life with Christ-like behavior.

CrossPointe Community Church  has been blessed by its church body to be able to offer counsel, free of charge, to anyone who calls. With that said, priority is given to our church members/attenders.

To begin the counseling process with our ministry, please complete the digital form below as thoroughly as possible. Upon receipt of your Personal Data Inventory (PDI), we will assign a counselor when one is available. Please give us at least 48 hours to respond to your request. 

Your assigned counselor will contact you to set up a meeting time and location that is convenient for both parties. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at 

With all His Energy,

CPCC Counseling Team

Please Note: If you are not a CrossPointe Community Church member/attender and want to be put on the member/attender list, this can happen by beginning to attend CrossPointe Community Church. We would love to have you, and our counseling “success” rate is significantly higher with those who are from CrossPointe than those who are not.
