We want to be a resource for you. We know that some of these topics are difficult and could stir up thoughts or emotions. We have several professionally trained, Master’s or Doctoral Level Counselors that we can recommend. We also have a shepherding ministry which is more informal and less in-depth. Omar Zook is our Pastor for Care Ministries and he is equipped to offer you direction and guidance as to a next step in your journey. You may email him or call the church office at 717-533-4848.
