HFM Christian Counseling Center

a division of Have Faith Ministries, Inc.


HFM Christian Counseling Center, a division of Have Faith Ministries, Inc., believes that growth and maturity is what God expects from the church. To that end, some are equipped as counselors to aid in the process.

Our counselors are also Ordained Ministers and are trained to help people who want to grow; who feel stuck; who can’t seem to stop destructive behaviors; who can’t seem to just let things go; whose thinking and behaviors are still deeply affected by the past; whose lives have been affected by grief and trauma; and those who have unsuccessfully tried to let time heal their wounds.

Here is how we can help. We can act as the professional christian pastoral counseling arm of your church or ministry by:
  • Working with the individuals, couples and families that you refer for counseling
  • Establishing one of our counseling sites in one room of your church (PRN)
  • Consulting with you around ethical or mental health issues

If you are interested in participating in this program and / or being a partner in our coalition or if you have any questions or want to set up a meeting to learn more, please contact our Director, Dr. Terry Aaron, at 618-731-4242 ext. 101 †
