The ministry of CCC has been a tremendous blessing to our staff, our church body, and our community! It is impossible for our pastors to have the time or expertise necessary to meet all the emotional and relational concerns present in the lives of people in our church and community. CCC is a true partner in ministry, directing people with wisdom, using God’s word as a solid foundation. We have great confidence in their experience, expertise and gifts which enables us to offer their services to our people without reservation. I praise God for how he has used CCC to bring hope and healing to many in our church.
I am grateful for the Christian Counselors Collaborative’s ministry in our Pittsburgh region. As each of us journeys through life, we face struggles with anxiety, stress, and personal pain. The CCC therapists help their clients navigate life's uncertainties by offering an eternal perspective.
Our partnership with CCC has been a godsend to Discovery. We opened our new facility in the midst of the pandemic when mental health, anxiety and depression skyrocketed. Having professionally trained counselors on-site demonstrates our vision of meeting the needs of the whole person God created to experience life to the full.
Especially at this moment, we need excellent, kind counselors who are able to walk alongside those who find themselves in need of a hand. Before partnering with the Collaborative, we had a hard time connecting our own congregation and those we were serving with those who might help. Now, right in our building, we are honored to partner with the exceedingly gifted staff of the Collaborative as they serve Christ with their abundant talent, thoughtfulness, and wisdom. Through the CCC's presence in our church's ministry, we have been able to love our neighbors by offering hope to those in distress. We are so grateful - what a gift!
Since the beginning of the pandemic until now the need for sound Christian counseling has never been greater. Our CCC affiliated counselor Doreen continually meets the increased demand with professionalism and grace. Both church and community members rely on her expertise to bring them through challenging seasons. CCC’s presence at Pittsburgh Baptist provides a layer of ministry that we would not otherwise be equipped to offer. The relationship between PBC and CCC is one of the best partnerships I have experienced in over 30 years of pastoral ministry. We have had the privilege of working with CCC for many years and look forward to many more.
First Presbyterian Church of Beaver, PA, has been a host church for CCC counselors for more than a decade. During that time we have seen countless lives impacted through the timely and godly wisdom of CCC counselors. One facet that we love is that CCC counselors see themselves as part of the fabric of God's work in many dimensions. We feel like we are all working in the same direction, compounding the effectiveness of all facets of God's work. We are privileged to count ourselves as supporters and co-workers in Christ's mission.
