At Families Forward Counseling Services we believe raising a family is a difficult job even under the best of circumstances! Every day is different, every relational exchange has the potential to be embracing or explosive. When things do go relationally ‘south’ you might find yourself wondering what went wrong? Although your intentions were good, somehow things got to an unhealthy place and you are left without answers on how to get back to ‘ok’ with your spouse, child, friend or relative. Often families struggle with the same issues from one generation to the next and never find productive or healthy ways to solve problems. Relational dynamics can be exhausting. Families Forward Counseling Services is committed to helping you find answers to some of these difficult relational dynamics.
The Center for Christian Counseling Studies is a state licensed vocational school offering a 3 year program designed to teach students to become biblically based pastoral counselors. The program will equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to impact their personal growth, their ministry involvement all while learning to correctly handle, skillfully teach and counsel the Word of God.
The Airborne Youth Challenge Experience invites teens into an intensive 46-hour program. The weekend activities are therapeutic in nature and help teens to draw a clear distinction between productive and non-productive thinking patterns, between effective and ineffective problem-solving strategies, between constructive and destructive attitudes, and between a persevering effort vs. the “try once and quit” approach.
Our workshops: Moving Forward in Maturity: A Biblical Basis for Transformation are therapeutic in nature and taught by trained facilitators. Each workshop is designed to teach you how to apply Biblical truths to your life as you continue Moving Forward in Maturity!
