Counseling Ministry

Counseling Ministry

Calvary Chapel Lynchburg’s counseling ministry desires to see believers conformed to the image of Christ. We do this by grounding ourselves in and submitting to the authority and inerrancy of Scripture. In doing so, we find ourselves transformed spiritually, cognitively, and behaviorally into the image of Christ as we challenge our views of self, others around us, and the world in general. Click here for more information and to read about our philosophy in counseling.

Who we serve

Individuals: It is our desire that our ministry will pair you with a counselor and a believer to disciple you through addictions, prayer, conflict, relationships, depression, anxiety, trauma, growing in Christ, spiritual maturity, etc.
Marriages: We offer pre-marital counseling and discipleship as well as marriage counseling and discipleship for those seeking to set a foundation for their marriage in the Lord.
Families: We offer counseling and discipleship for families to encourage parents to connect with their children as they grow in the Lord.


Availability of counseling staff varies depending on level of need. Sessions will be scheduled at most for one session a week. If you are considering counseling at the church but already receive counseling services in the community and are benefiting from those services, we would recommend that you continue with those services.
