Mission Statement: To minister to persons who respond to the Gospel in an effort to make disciples who love God and share His love with the world.
This we hope to accomplish by listening to and praying with responders to the Gospel as we encourage them to read the Bible, pray, and become an active member of a Bible-believing church like Montco Bible Fellowship.
As individual members of the counseling ministry, we want to become more like Christ. We also want to cultivate and maintain hearts sensitive to the leading of God and to the needs of others. As a group, our goal is to grow so that other groups will be born from ours thereby enabling us to be more active and effective in sharing God’s love with the world.
Our group consists of several members who have a desire to stand along side others in their Christian walk. We have several members who have chosen and were gifted and called to this ministry as one of their primary ministries. We also benefit from the aid of assistants to the ministry. The assistants help when there is a need for additional counselors.
The resources we use are the Bible, a bookmark with helpful scripture passages, and a Welcome To The Family pamphlet. The bookmark and the pamphlet were carefully developed by one of our elders, Pastor Sam Butler.
In keeping with the outward thrust of our church’s mission statement, we plan to visit a social service organization or nursing home to do ministry. This ministry will be in the form of assisting the organization or facility wherever there is a need.
We are always available to our church family for support with prayers and a listening ear.
However, situations that are beyond our scope to address will always be referred to our pastors.
Our request of the congregation is that they pray for us as a group and as individuals, that we continue to grow closer to the Master and that we be used by Him to point others to Him.
“But sanctify the Lord God in your heart: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.”
1 Peter 3:15.
