Pastoral Counseling

Obviously, if you have questions about faith, God, or the Bible, Pastor Albers is your go-to guy, but he is also available to talk to you about a variety of other things happening in your life as well. He may help you deal with depression, anxiety, guilt, and similar common emotional challenges. When you need more specialized help, he will refer you to other professionals. Unlike many other sources of counseling, he can pray with you. Contact us for an appointment.
