Pastoral Counselors

We offer personal counseling with our Cornerstone Pastoral Team and counseling staff.  We are available to share a Biblical perspective of the life issues we face.  God's Word gives incredible insight into how to live this life with peace, purpose, and direction.  Many times people simply need to get a better Biblical understanding of their situation and perhaps what God is trying to accomplish in their lives.
