Specialized Counseling for Church Members
Due to the lack of staff and key lay led sanctifying programs (i.e. Recovery or Steps-like curriculum), it falls to the pastor to minister one-on-one and counsel every church member.
Not discounting the call on the pastor for personal discipleship, Paradigm recognizes the need for the specialization within counseling in order to rightly deal with a myriad of heart issues and behavior dysfunction that the pastor may feel ill equipped to handle.
Furthermore, ministers often feel ill-equipped and unable to help effectively in light of their substantial work load. Our heart is to fill this gap and wisely counsel the people of God.
