Pastoral Leadership

Pastoral and Church Care

Ministry is full of challenges and possibilities.  Partnering with Agape is a great way to provide much-needed counseling support to congregations and at the same time empower ministers to live out their call more deeply.

To that end, Agape Counseling has been devoted to building relationships with local churches in the southeastern coastal Carolina region. We have begun to see folks drive in from the Myrtle Beach, Whiteville, and Clinton areas and we have also established an office in Jacksonville with a local ministry to the military families.  There are several ways that we are positioned to help the local church, pastors, and leaders.

What churches are saying . . .

Agape Counseling is one of the leaders in providing professional clinical Christian counseling in our area. Often, throughout our 12-year ministry in Wilmington, we have referred people from within our church and who are very close friends to seek counseling services through Agape Counseling. The clinicians at Agape are such an incredible team, who truly value people with the highest quality care in a biblically-based environment. What I so deeply appreciate about Agape Counseling is that, although they never impose their faith or beliefs, you know that Christ is the centerpiece of their practice. When I am approached by people, who are looking for counseling services, regardless of age or situation, I direct them to Agape Counseling. They have a BIG vision that matches a very BIG God!

– Pastor Jeff Loman, North Pointe Community Church

Life Community Church has and will continue to endorse Agape as a Christ centered, established practice in the Wilmington area. They have worked closely with LifeCC and our members and received much success. Over the past 3 years, Life Community Church has relied on Agape Counseling Services to augment our ministry. As a pastor, I am often asked to counsel people; however, this is not one of my strengths. I frequently refer people to Agape, knowing they will get a high quality of care from a Christ-centered staff that truly ministers to their hearts and spirits. I am very grateful to have this resource in our community.

– Pastor Tim Blevins, Life Community Church

Agape Counseling has been a valuable and trusted partner in helping us as a church provide effective high-level care for anyone needing care above and beyond what we may be able to provide.
