Recommendations for Biblical Counselors
Counseling at Vintage Church takes several forms; much of our counseling happens in the context of Community Groups or in a more formal setting with one of our church pastors. We also have several licensed counselors in the Raleigh/Durham area that are available as additional, trusted resources to Vintage Church.
Vintage Church has negotiated reduced rates for counseling services through these referral sources; you can take advantage of that discount just by saying that you’re a member or attender at Vintage. Please note – you are responsible for all fees charged by the counselor. If you are not able to pay those fees, please contact a Vintage Pastor you’ve been meeting with (if applicable), Jordan Penley at email@example.com, or the church office at (919) 829-7087 to see if financial assistance is available.
