Christian Counseling


A Ministry of Harvest Bible Fellowship

"A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels."


Proverbs 1:5

Counseling Basics:


Counseling usually is the last resort for people with problems. There are many reasons why people don't seek counseling when distressed over a personal issue:

  • Don't believe counseling will help.

  • Afraid others may find out.

  • Afraid of a breach of confidentiality.

  • Don't want accountability.


Yet, there is no problem so great God cannot touch the wounded soul and bring healing and wholeness. Harvest Bible Fellowship offers Biblical counseling that adheres to the highest ethical standards. The truth of God's word is shard in an atmosphere of total acceptance, complete confidentiality, and Biblical guidance so that you may be healed.


"My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God:

when shall I come and appear before God?"


Psalms 42:2


Realizing that you need help and reaching out is 75% of the cure.


"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."


Matthew 11:28-30

Meet Michael:


Michael began his missionary career in the bush regions of Kenya. He taught in a Bible Institute and later became principal. Theology and Pastoral Counseling were the focuses of his teaching. Counseling the students was a large part of his ministry as well.

Michael went to Rwanda and participated in counseling the returning refugees from the refugee camps genocide. Also, they were debriefed from all the horrific things that happended to them and the things they saw.


The Nairobi bombing of the American embassy was a monumental disaster leaving many emotionally distraught and physically injured. Michael supervised a counseling program (sponsored by USAID) that offered individuals counseling and psycological debriefings.

Our Goal:

Our overall goal is to assist an individual work through their problems in order to find greater intamacy with God. The result of intamacy with God is the progressive transformation of a life that reflects the glory of the Kingdom of God within their interpersonal relationships.
"Ever since apostolic times, counseling has occurred in the church as a natural function of corporate spiritual life. After all, the New Testament itself commands believers to admonish one another; encourage one another; comfort one another with these words; ... build up one another; confess your sins to one another; and pray for one another: so that you may be healed."
