Biblical counseling is a targeted form of discipleship. Biblical counselors take the position that Scripture gives the only authoritative guide for what we are to believe and how we are to live.
2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
The biblical counselor is trained in the use of Scripture and the principles of biblical counseling. This counsel is not based on man’s wisdom, opinions, experiences, or concepts of behavior, but seeks to bring the full range of biblical truth to focus on the counselee’s needs.
Our trained biblical counselors will listen to your situation, help you understand what God desires, and will assist you to implement practical changes in your thoughts and life, in a way that honors God, and brings peace and rest to your soul.
Remember that the Holy Sprit and Jesus is called the Counselor!
“But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me.” John 15:26
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

Philosophy of Ministry
C.C.F. exists to meet the spiritual, emotional, and relational needs of the C.C.F. family and our Tucson Community. Our Biblical Counseling Ministry is available to everyone who is searching for counseling services. We ensure that all of our volunteer counselors meet the qualifications needed to be lay biblical counselors, but they are not licensed therapists.
A typical appointment lasts 50 minutes, however, your initial appointment may last up to 90 minutes. Initially we may see the counselee for a few weeks in a row and then move to every other week.
Most counselees are seen for approximately 5 sessions. However, every situation is unique and some people may be seen for a longer period of time.
