What is the Biblical Counseling approach?
Most experts agree that emotional problems stem from one or more of eight main root problems:
- Counterfeit Spiritual Experiences
- Generational Problems
- Believing Lies
- Causing Offense
- Habitual Sins

Begun as a local counseling ministry in Centerville, Iowa, little did we know that God had a bigger plan. God gave us a burden, not only to help hurting people and disciple Believers, but to also equip God’s people to help and disciple others.
The whole idea was to create a ministry tool that anyone could use just by following the instructions. The Lord directed us to make a unique tool that has multiple uses to accomplish His purposes in each person. It is a tool for meeting counseling needs, for evangelizing your community, a tool to help struggling Christians, for discipling new Believers, to help deepen your walk with the Lord, for meeting counseling needs, and the training and equipping of people to serve the Lord. That’s what we see happening for most people who go through this – they want to get involved in ministry. God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things. He wants to show Himself to be powerful through us, and it begins with one person at a time.
