Welcome to Hope for the Hurting, a biblical counseling ministry based at Hope Alliance Bible Church.
Our mission is to help people discover the underlying cause of their problems, develop suitable strategies to achieve Christ-like outcomes, and obtain information and increased awareness about the Word of God to better their life and cultivate a greater intimacy with Jesus Christ.
We attain these goals by helping people heal after trauma and painful events, overcome the obstacles and challenges that plague the community, prosper emotionally, spiritually, and socially and endure the ever present trials of this world. Hope for the Hurting provides counseling to members of HABC and the surrounding community.
We thank you for allowing us to serve you.

Lay Counselors & Qualifications
Counseling sessions are conducted by lay counselors. Lay counselors are not licensed by the state of Ohio and do not have degrees or certifications from a state accredited entity. Instead, lay counselors are Christians who have a heart and passion to assist people in overcoming the struggles and difficulties of life. Lay counselors have a desire to see you overcome pain and hurt by leading you to true Hope.
Because of the Biblical and spiritual nature of this ministry lay counselors are trained through EMERGE Ministries. Each lay counselor is equipped with listening and helping skills, and the application of Biblical/spiritual principles to common issues and struggles. Lay counselors do not possess a professional licenses or certification issued by the State of Ohio for the practice of counseling, marriage and family therapy, or social work. Referral options to outside providers are available upon request.
