OPEN DOOR BAPTIST CHURCH

COUNSELING POLICIES

The counseling services provided at Open Door Baptist Church are a ministry to Open Door Baptist Church members. The purpose of this ministry is to provide biblical counseling services for you and education for lay counselors of Open Door Baptist Church. Bill Gibbs is on staff with the Calvary University and is an adjunct instructor with Calvary University teaching several courses in the Undergraduate Dept. 

As a teaching counselor Mr. Gibbs is responsible for training new counselors. It is possible that with your permission a counselor trainee or lay counselor will be observing the counselor and the counseling process. Trainees and lay counselors are subject to the same guidelines in regard to confidentiality as our counselors.

Open Door Baptist Church through the regular tithes and offerings of its members supports the counseling ministry. Counseling services are available to those who are not members as a ministry to the community. A donation to this ministry would show support of these counseling services. If you choose to make a donation, you may make a check out to Open Door Baptist Church for any amount.

The counselor will not normally be available for telephone conversations due to scheduled appointments. However if you have a life-threatening situation please call 911. Otherwise, please leave a message and the counselor will return your call as soon as possible.

Due to the increasing need for our counseling services, we ask that in the event that you need to cancel an appointment that you do so at least two days in advance in order that we can offer the time to someone on the waiting list.
