Our Mission

The counseling ministry at North Hills exists to help hurting people through the loving and patient process of restorative discipleship.


Counseling Ministries are available for those who regularly attend North Hills Church.

Individual Counseling

Compassionate counseling is offered for most spiritual, emotional and relational struggles. This counseling emphasizes the provision of grace through the gospel of Jesus Christ in the midst of sin and suffering.

Premarital Counseling

Classes are offered twice annually that cover a wide array of topics targeted for those who are soon-to-be married. Private premarital counseling with a pastor, elder or trained lay couple is also offered.

Marriage Mentoring

Marriage mentoring pairs an experienced couple with a younger couple for year-long discipleship and mentoring. Couples are encouraged to meet regularly for a meal in a casual setting to provide opportunity for encouragement and informal discussion about topics related to Christian marriage. This is not intended as a substitute for formal marriage counseling.

Counseling Groups

These groups are gender-specific, short-term, Spirit-dependent, gospel-centered small groups, led by trained leaders who intentionally guide participants into careful examination of their own hearts in light of the person and work of Jesus, with the goal of seeing God produce in them deep repentance and renewed, joyful worship.

Financial Coaching

Guidance in biblical financial management is available for individuals, couples, or entire families. Assistance is provided with setting up a financial plan that focuses on biblical stewardship of financial resources.

Family Counseling

Assistance is provided to an entire family. This counseling focuses on developing a biblical foundation for family relationships, including establishing roles, conflict resolution strategies, and healthy communication.
