Biblical Counseling

Lay Care Ministry is Biblical guidance for individuals 18 and older who call CBC their home church. This ministry is not professional counseling but rather is short-term biblical guidance provided by trained volunteers who walk alongside you to find God’s answers to life’s difficulties. The role of the Lay Care Minister is to listen, pray with you and provide resources that could help you through whatever challenges life might bring. 


If you are in crisis and this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. The Local Crisis Hotline is (210)223-7233 or call 988

or Text HOME to 741741
