ABOUT NEW HOPE
New Hope has a philosophy of Biblical Counseling that discusses the importance of biblical truth in the helping and healing process that we call counseling.
Our philosophy of counseling document discusses the role of the Holy Spirit in the helping process and the importance of prayer and biblical truth for the journey toward wholeness. It also talks about cost, confidentiality, and record keeping.
There are three situations where the pastor must break confidentiality and these situations are determined by law. There are other legal situations that the counselor must be aware of in the helping ministry. (Read about these circumstances in the philosophy of counseling paper.)
Therefore, you are encouraged to read the Philosophy of Biblical Counseling to get the full impact of the position of the New Hope Church on helping people with needs. (Simply click of the highlighted phrase and you will have access to the document.)
