Who We Are
Your Pastoral Counselor:
Chris Thompson, M.A.
The mission of Life in His Hands Biblical Counseling is to show all who come as a counselee that Jesus Christ is the light that brings healing. To find biblical solutions and work towards goals set by The Great Physician, monitored by prayer and a helping relationship, and executed through the life of the counselee. To remove all secular labels and start fresh. To teach that although we are sinful, Jesus loves us so much, and His love for us is greater than His disappointment for our actions. To remind every counselee that they are saved by God’s grace, not by their own works. Therefore, we can never ‘work’ our way out of painful situations, but rather we can only surrender and allow Him to direct us out.
What We Do
Chris is a Biblical Pastoral Counselor who specializes in home-based, long-distance sessions through online webcam programs such as Skype and ooVoo. Many people find they would like to speak to a Biblical Pastoral Counselor, but may be on the road or feel too close to their home church pastor to speak in detail. Chris uses techniques that are applied through a Biblical filter and believes that God’s hand is already at work to solve our human issues, and that together, the three of us (you, God, and Chris as your helper) can find the right way to God’s will.
Throughout the year we regularly hold Church services in public locations such as parks or in the marketplace. Everyone is invited to attend and bring his or her friends. Please follow our Facebook page for our twitter feed for information about our next outdoor sermon. Our services are a lot of fun being in an outdoor atmosphere on a weekday night and they provide for a great atmosphere for fellowship and learning more about the direction that God has for our lives.
Chris is available for speaking engagements and special events. For more information about dates, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (661) 345-0036.
First, let me thank you for taking a tour through this site. My goal is to provide you an option for Pastoral care from wherever you are in the world. If you use the contact forms on this page, your message will come straight to my phone. We can be in touch within just a few hours to set an appointment. The help and direction you are seeking isn’t far away at all. Actually, by just the fact that you are here seeking a healing relationship, you have already taken the first step.
See the Statement of Faith on the left side of this page? Please don’t let this scare you. We all struggle to live by all of these points, but it’s not these statements that are going to save us, it’s a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Wherever you are on your walk with Jesus, we can talk about where you’ve been, and where you’re going.
Finally, between now and the time we get to meet, please take a few moments to read. The Bible is not a scary book-it’s rather very gentle. I leave you with this verse until we meet: John 15:33 (Jesus speaking) “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
