We all at various times have needed or will need counsel.

Struggling with an area of sin? Someone else’s sin affecting you? Experiencing the consequences of foolish choices? Going through a life-altering trial? Or just need help and hope?

It’s our desire in Biblical Soul Care to come alongside you during this time. We hope to lovingly care for you and help carry your burdens (Galatians 6:1-2James 1:2-5) but, more importantly, point you to and remind you of the ultimate hope, Jesus Christ.

If for some reason you do not want to call the church or you have trouble connecting with us and are in an emergency situation and need help, please call 911 immediately.

How Do I Get Help (for those already in a small group)?

  1. Share your concerns, problems, pain, etc. with your Small Group leader(s).
    Your leader(s) may be able to give you the counsel you need to see healing, change, and victory.
  2. If your small group leader feels they need help in caring for you, with your permission, they should consult with their flock leader.
  3. If still more help is needed, your flock leader will refer you to formal Biblical Soul Care counseling. At that time, a BSC staff or volunteer will give you forms to be completed as your next steps.

Anyone who currently attends one of our seven Harvest Bible Chapel campuses in the Chicago area but is not in a small group yet, can connect with us by calling 847-398-7024 xt 3100 or by emailing us at bscinfo@harvestbiblechapel.org.

We understand that it may be difficult for you to take the first step. However, we believe that this first step can be a step toward healing, reconciliation, and peace. So take courage and make the step…
