Life may get complicated when you’re facing emotional, relational, or spiritual challenges. Through pastoral counseling you don’t have to go through a struggle alone. We provide hope and counsel to individuals and couples in need of healing. Our intention is to extend God’s spirit of grace and love to your life.


Marriage is a beautiful, lifelong commitment. In preparation for marriage OCF offers personal sessions with a pastor-elder and his wife prior to tying the knot. Together with your partner you’ll discuss important topics that will ultimately strengthen your bond with each other and Christ. We also facilitate important discussions within married couples. Our counselors offer an unbiased perspective that brings Christ to the center of the relationship.


This is a group of 5-6 mature OCF members who gather together for a meeting to offer input and insight about a decision in an individual’s life. This council typically discusses each decision once, so it’s not designed to address long-term emotional or relational needs.
