AGAPE CHRISTIAN COUNSELING

Agapé is a Greek word used in the New Testament for unconditional acceptance and love that God has for us. It is an unselfish love, which arises from a keen sense of the value and worth of the one loved. With that in mind, we offer counseling that integrates Biblical truth with psychological principals in the healing process.

THE BARNABAS CENTER

Founded in 1989 The Barnabas Center is a nonprofit, nondenominational, Christ-centered counseling, training and teaching ministry. The Barnabas name, which means “son of encouragement,” communicates our desire to encourage people by coming alongside them, entering into their daily struggles, and walking with them toward freedom.

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH LOCATIONS

*We recommend this resource for anyone in a state of immediate crisis. They offer a 24 hour hotline, as well as a 24 hour a day facility for inpatient and outpatient care. Since Desert Streams is not a crisis-based facility, this is the best resource for those who need immediate care.

Atrium Health’s comprehensive, integrated system of inpatient, outpatient, school-based, crisis and residential treatment programs, makes us the most comprehensive behavioral healthcare provider in the region.
