Personal Counseling

You matter to God and you matter to us

If you are struggling with the pressures of this life and just don't feel like you have any other options, it is critical that you talk to somebody. All of us have different backgrounds but likely share similar experiences. We provide biblical counseling and support in the areas of marriage and family, abuse and addiction, finances, and affliction that lead to emotional discouragement. 

You can set up an appointment with our Care Ministry by calling the church office at 480-348-9191. You are able to meet with one of our pastors, a trained lay counselor, or one of our Stephen Ministers, who are able to provide extended, one-to-one care to those experiencing a difficult time in life such as grief, job loss, relocation, or chronic or terminal illness.

We do not provide licensed psychological or psychiatric counsel. If you are seeking counseling outside of your local church, we encourage you to visit the listing at The Biblical Counseling Coalition or contact us for a specific referral for your counseling needs.

Highlands' pastoral staff is available to meet with anyone who desires pastoral biblical counseling. Our pastors are all equipped in the knowledge of God's Word and would count it a privilege to meet with you. Depending on the topic, we will work to pair you with a pastor who can most effectively minister to you.

Our lay counselors trained through the IBCD Care and Discipleship curriculum are equipped to advise a brother or sister in Christ to what the Bible reveals to us about life and circumstance.

Stephen Ministers are lay people who have completed a comprehensive 6-month training in Christian care prior to their commission. After being matched with a person experiencing a life crisis, the Stephen Minister meets with that person on a weekly basis to list, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. The caring relationship lasts as long as the need for care exists. Your identity and conversations you have with your Stephen Minister remain confidential.
