About The Counseling Ministry

The Calvary Life Counseling Center is a biblically-based, short-term, non-fee ministry of Calvary Church Santa Ana, serving the people of Calvary Church, Calvary Christian School and Pre-School, as well as our surrounding community. Calvary Life Counseling Center is part of Calvary's Care Ministries, striving to effectively integrate God’s Word, prayer and the best counseling tools and techniques available with the approach of truth and grace utilizing non-professional Lay Counselors. Our passion is to offer God’s hope and healing to assist individuals to be the people God intends them to be in order to fulfill what God intends them to do.

About Our Counselors

The Lay Counselors are members of our congregation drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and occupations who have gifts, skills and experience in supportive helping, encouraging, and counseling. They go through a lengthy training process. Licensed mental health professionals train and supervise our volunteer counselors.
