Overlake’s Biblical Counseling ministry is here to help you through difficult times. It's composed of volunteers under pastoral supervision who have walked through a series of trainings focused on listening, prayer and Scripture. Our biblical counselors offer encouragement, love, empathy, and above all, hope through relationship with Christ.
We offer free short-term biblical counseling to women, men, adolescents, and husbands/wives in daytime and evening appointments.
Biblical counseling is kept confidential and no fee is charged because this is a volunteer-run ministry. (You are welcome to make a donation to support the ministry if you feel led to.)
PLEASE NOTE: Our Biblical Counseling ministry is in no way a substitute for professional therapy or psychological care. OCC values the wide spectrum of support offered by mental health professionals in our area. Oftentimes our biblical counselors recognize that a person's mental health needs are beyond their capacity, in which case, we refer to local, licensed Christian counselors and psychologists. If you are in need of a referral, feel free to contact Pastor Josh at as we maintain an extensive list of Christian professionals and resources.
