Our Impact

Christian Families

Our ministry and services will target Christian families and those groups and organizations who target Christian families who have a hard time coping or living effectively and who do not have the skills or resources to meet life's challenges. These would include troubled/at-risk youth, people who are grieving, troubled marriages and families, substance abusers, those without hope, the needy, the elderly, and those abused.

What families are saying about us…

Life is filled with ups, downs and crazy turn arounds. How do you objectively navigate those changing circumstances? The only unchanging, unyielding, all sufficient source of direction is the word of God. Carolyn Davis is a gifted certified biblical counselor who faithfully stands on the one thing that we can count on, God’s Word.

In Christ, Rev. Jeffery Ferrell

Under the tutelage of Sister Davis and the Holy Spirit, I was able to deepen my understanding of what it means to "...conform to the image of Christ", even when experiencing the valleys of life. Her and Brother Davis' commitment to the integrity and authority of Gods' word, especially as it relates to counseling, is both admirable and highly contagious.

Kuchambi Myhand

God is amazing! He used my counselor to walk with me through the Bible. I found out just how much God loved me and wanted me in love and with my husband. I started to feel empowered with strength and there was no more feelings of embarrassment and hurt or feeling alone. God used my messed up marriage to give me a whole new outlook on life. God is just that amazing! Today, I am still married. My marriage is not perfect but life is good; I’m happy, and I’m on purpose. Through biblical counseling I have learned the way to love, forgive, and live in a marriage while letting God get all the glory, and I am and will forever be grateful to God and my loving and very concerned counselor.

Vanessa McGee

Anyone who is married knows that through the years a marriage has its ups and downs. Years ago my husband and I were struggling to keep our marriage afloat. We were dealing with serious issues that we thought were irreconcilable. We were both contemplating divorce, something I thought I did not even believe in. We knew this wasn’t a problem we could handle on our own. We knew we needed the help of The Lord. We attended biblical counseling forabout one full year. Sister Davis, our counselor, gave us the tools to have a strong marriage, one with both LOVE and RESPECT. We now have two beautiful babies. We thank The Lord each and every day for our many blessings and for guiding us to go through counseling years ago.

God Bless, Scott and Jamie Johnson
