The Barnabas Center provides individual, marriage, and family therapy for children, adolescents and adults.
The Barnabas Center for Counseling seeks to accept people where they are without judgment and help bring them to a full understanding of their true identity in Christ. Our counseling is based on the belief that the Bible is the inspired word of God and is “profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.” (II Timothy 3:16) Our counselors are committed to serving God and being used as His instrument in the lives of others.
Our Philosophy and History
The Barnabas Center for Counseling was founded after much prayerful consideration on November 15, 1995. Since that time we have been blessed to serve literally thousands of individuals and families throughout the Coastal Empire.
Our desire is to provide solid, Biblically-based treatment that is both Christ centered and affordable. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and eligible to receive tax deductible donations. We receive donations from churches, businesses, and individuals that allow us to offer a reduced rate for those who qualify.
The Name “Barnabas”
In the book of Acts, Barnabas is referred to as the “Son of Encouragement” because of his character and ability to encourage those who were discouraged. We at the Barnabas Center want to encourage those who may be struggling with certain life experiences. People were empowered by the encouragement of Barnabas. Our desire is for those who are hurting to have the same experience in their lives.
