Board of Trustees votes to rebrand counseling ministry

January 7, 2020

Arkansas Baptist Children’s Homes and Family Ministries Board of Trustees voted Dec. 10 to rename and rebrand the agency’s counseling ministry to better align with the unique counseling services provided. The new ministry name is Living Well Counseling.

“When we break down what is truly unique about Christian counseling, we find authority and perspective at the core,” shared Derek Brown, executive director. “The Living Well brand offers a reminder of our source for hope and healing as well as a Biblical perspective on right living.”

Living Well Counseling services are offered in seven locations across the state, including new locations in Conway and Hot Springs.

Professionally trained Christian counselors minister to individuals, couples and entire families at locations around the state, with a goal to foster hope and healing through a therapeutic relationship that is planned and structured, as well as spontaneously directed by the Holy Spirit.

Counselors use strategies that have been researched and reviewed with positive outcomes and align with a Christian world view. Brown said the counseling relationship is one of genuineness, trust, mercy and acceptance, with intervention based on skill and knowledge that is consistent with Scripture and seasoned with grace.

Service treatments include depression, anxiety, foster/adoptive counseling, couples counseling, premarital counseling, family trauma counseling, parenting support, grief counseling, spiritual issues, and conflict resolution.

Because of the generous support of Arkansas Baptists, counseling is offered at an affordable rate. Multiple forms of payment, including cash, check and major credit cards are accepted. A limited number of partial scholarships are awarded based upon

financial need. Arkansas Baptist ministers and their immediate family members are eligible for a full scholarship for a limited number of sessions.
