Biblical Counseling • Hope & Help

Our Biblical Counseling (aka Biblical Guidance) Ministry was formed out of our desire to help believers meet the challenges of life in a way that will glorify and honor the Lord Jesus Christ. Biblical counseling is a transformational process centered on the person of Jesus Christ and anchored in the truth and sufficiency of Scripture. Biblical counseling incorporates the study and application of biblical truth, encourages obedience to the commands of God, and points the believer toward a deeper relationship with the Savior.

How It Works

We are convinced that the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for life (2 Peter 1:3), therefore our counsel is based on biblical principles rather than those of secular psychology.
Neither the pastoral nor the lay staff of Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley are state licensed mental health professionals. Rather, the counseling staff are mature Christians who have received specialized training and/or certification in biblical counseling.
The goal of biblical counseling is to direct a counselee toward a dependency upon Jesus rather than upon the counselor. Consequently, most counselees meet three to four times with a counselor, although this may vary at the discretion of the counselor. These counseling sessions are offered free of charge.
Biblical counseling is practical, and personal change comes with intentionality and commitment. It includes an expectation that counselees will:

  • Complete assigned "homework" (such as reading, written work, Scripture memorization, etc.)
  • Remain in consistent fellowship (church attendance)
  • Participate in Bible study
  • Commit to regular personal devotions



We carefully guard the information you entrust to us, however, there are specific situations when it may be necessary for us to share certain information with others.
