Pastoral Care

Biblically-based licensed counseling for familes and individuals

The Fellowship recognizes that life brings struggles to people and that scripture encourages us as believers to help one another in our times of stress. We want to be sure that all those whom desire some guidance know that we provide pastoral counseling and other forms of care. We use the term therapeutic pastoral care as a catch-all descriptive phrase. 

Basic pastoral counseling is provided by all of our pastors. This is provided on an as-needed basis, usually limited to 1-2 meetings. Typically, an individual would contact the pastor's assistant to arrange counseling at no charge. By policy, the pastors are asked to limit this activity because it can interrupt their regular church duties. We ask that individuals respect the pastor's time. Each pastor also has personal discretion to refer these individuals to outside Christ-centered professional counselors for longer-term counseling.

For those needing more than short-term help and who want to stay within the church, we offer the counseling assistance listed below:


Ken Gross - Recovery Pastor

Ken provides what is traditionally known as pastoral counseling. Individuals or couples seeking help for any reason can contact him. When there are normal or routine problems, he may provide pastoral counseling sessions himself. If he believes that the problems are clinically pathological, he will refer a case out to local psychiatrists, psychologists and counselors.

Fee: $50 per one hour session, payable to The Fellowship

Contact Ken at The Fellowship (281.395.3950) or on his cell (281.989.4545)
