Counselling is a big part of ministry, especially pastoral ministry. Pastors in particular are often called on to counsel. To be effective counselors we need to be properly trained. The aim of Christian Counselling is to bring us back to wholeness in Christ. The most compelling difference between correct Christian Counselling and other forms of counselling is that the Christian Counselor is led by the Holy. A Christian counselor aims to bring people to a place where they experience the fullness of Christ in their lives.
