Healing, freedom, and wisdom found in the Bible.

Sometimes we feel inadequate or unprepared to deal with the confusing and complicated situations of life. We need someone to listen and give solid advice. When special circumstances require help beyond Small Groups or Recovery Groups, our lay counselors are ready to listen without condemnation, and offer Bible-centered support. Our lay counselors are not professionals but have received training through the Lay Counseling Institute ( and are available to help in a non-clinical setting. Our lay counseling program is free of charge to those who attend New Hope Church. Those outside of New Hope will be evaluated on a case by case basis based on availability of a lay counselor.
