Office Visits or Distance Counseling Sessions Are Available
Since mid-May the center has again been providing office visits and it has gone very well! For the protection of everyone in the counseling center we ask that anyone with active cold or flu symptoms not attempt to participate in an office visit, or transport anyone who is coming for an office visit. Distance Counseling sessions (video conference via internet) continue to be available and, in fact, will remain a permanent service of the center. If you prefer Distance Counseling, you can begin that process at that tab on this website or call the office at 812-244-0400.
DISTANCE COUNSELING IS HERE
Our counselors have been providing biblically sound, financially responsible counsel to individuals and families in West-central Indiana and East-central Illinois since 2003. Most of those services have been provided in our office located in downtown Terre Haute, Indiana. Our Distance Counseling services makes our counselors available to most anyone who has access to the internet.
HOW SHOULD THE CHURCH HANDLE DEPRESSION?
Dr. Jim Evans recently had the opportunity to teach at Berea Christian Church where he answered a very pertinent question, “How should the church handle depression?”
“It is a powerful message reminding us of who we are and the reality of the fallen world in which we live.”
Please let us know if this teaching has been a blessing to you.
WHAT WERE YOU DOING 17 YEARS AGO TODAY?
For the staff and counselors of Community Christian Counseling, we were busy with our opening day! CCC opened November 3, 2003. Years before, Dr. Gary Greven had the idea for a free-standing Christian counseling center in Terre Haute. He shared the idea with me and I shared it with Frank & Janet Volkers. An organizing committee was formed, local clergy were interviewed, and God got involved. Dr. Henry Edwards was retiring from his 35 year medical practice at 518 S. 7th Street He and his wife chose to favor our project by selling their building to the ministry in December 2002, for very favorable pricing. Through most of 2003, improvements to the building were completed, and the business and legal structures were completed. Hence, on November 3, 2003, our counselors began the ministry of biblically sound and financially responsible counseling.
Many thousands of individuals, families, churches and other ministries have allowed our staff into the most private areas of their lives, and we are most grateful the trust.
Our staff has changed some, as have our Board of Directors, but the Lord has, through the 18 years, seen fit to take up, and abide with us, and within us. Again, thanks to all who have come to CCC for help. We appreciate your trust as we have talked and reasoned together, and your grace when we’ve missed the mark. We know nothing about tomorrow, but we continue to trust the One who does! “If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.” John 15:7-8
Combining Counseling Experience of over 50 years!
Dr. Ann Hogue has joined Community Christian Counseling
In 1982 Dr.’s Ray and Ann Hogue began providing Christian counseling services at their office on South 25th Street in Terre Haute. In 2003, Dr. Jim Evans, the staff and counselors at Community Christian Counseling began the same type of ministry at 518 S. 7th Street in Terre Haute. They are joining their efforts.
In 2014, Ann lost her loving husband and counseling partner, Ray, but continued to use biblical principles in her work and encouragement with couples and women. She was well prepared to do so, with an undergraduate degree as an English teacher, a Master’s Degree
So, Ann has closed her office and joined Dr. Evans and the other Christian counselors and staff at Community Christian Counseling. The move connected Dr. Ann to like-minded colleagues, and will further deepen the talent and services on South 7th Street. [Read More]
Garden Entrance to Community Christian Counseling
“We strive to make your visit to Community Christian Counseling a stress free expereince that will strengthen your relationship with God and the people you love.”
In 2019, Community Christian Counseling was again one of many Wabash Valley organizations that benefited from Serve the Valley volunteers. This year’s projects at the counseling center were to remove an old brick planter from our south lot, and to rebuild and replant the bed that frames our main outdoor sign.
Serve the Valley Volunteers
On Friday morning July 26, Summer Koenig, and her daughters Chelsea, Sophi, and Sarah arrived. Two heavy sledge hammers, a large pry-bar, and a variety of other tools were ready for use. None of them had used a sledge hammer before, but within a matter of minutes, they were whaling away. The brick planter didn’t stand a chance! Within two hours, the planter had been reduced to a stack of individual brick and rubble! The ladies were absolute rock stars!
