Our Goal

Our goal in providing Christian pastoral counseling is to journey with clients through the challenges of life, directing them in a way that will please and honor the Lord Jesus Christ and allow clients to experience the fullness of His love for them.

What is Pastoral Counseling?

A Christian pastoral counselor is a deeply committed, Spirit-guided and Spirit filled servant of Jesus Christ who applies his or her God given abilities, skills, training, knowledge, and insights to the task of helping others grow toward personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental balance, and spiritual maturity.

What Can I Expect?

Any counseling performed by the staff of the Millville Church of the Nazarene is based on a Biblical worldview first and foremost. We adhere to an integrative philosophy of ministry; therefore some interventions may include secular principles.  Although we are a Christian center, it is not a requirement for those we help. Our desire is to meet people where they are and join them in their journey to health.

How Can I Receive Help?

Those seeking help can contact Pastor Wendy Hughes by leaving a message on her office phone 856-285-4140. This number is accessed by authorized personnel and is confidential. Wendy can also be reached via email at wendy@counselingsj.com. Be advised that this email account is not accessed on a daily basis so for immediate care please contact by phone.

How Much Does it Cost?

We do not like to put a price on ministry. We offer our pastoral counseling services on a donation basis.
