Emotional health is a critical component of living life with Christ. GCCC provides support for members of our community going through difficult times via several means:
Board of Women
The Board of Women (BoW) is a group of female leaders that focuses upon the needs of women at GCCC. The BoW serves alongside the Elders and seeks to give a greater voice to women’s views within the church. The BoW also seeks to support the spiritual, physical, mental and emotional needs of women at GCCC through biblical teaching, prayer, counseling and tangible holistic care.
Christian Counseling Resources
Counseling and Education Foundation (https://www.ccef.org/ )
Paul Tripp Ministries (http://www.paultripp.com/)

We encourage members of our community to meet with a Christian counselor to address challenging issues. A list of counselors in the area is here.
