Dr. Ann Hogue is joining 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 is Religious Education, and a Ph.D. in Christian Counseling. She has realized though, counseling alone – can be lonely.
So, Ann has begun the process of closing her office and will be joining Dr. Evans and the other Christian counselors and staff at Community Christian Counseling. She will be available there beginning in early May. The move will connect Dr. Ann to like-minded colleagues, and will further deepen the talent and services on South 7th Street.
Community Christian Counseling opened in November 2003. With the help of Frank & Janet Volkers and others, the office building T 518 South 7th Street was purchased from Dr. Henry Edwards. Dr. Edwards had practiced medicine there for 35 years. Community Christian Counseling has five counselors on staff, and Dr. Ann will make six. She will only enhance the mission of Community Christian Counseling, to “provide biblically sound, confidential and financially accessible counseling to individuals and families seeking victory over life’s challenges”.
Community Christian Counseling has been very stable during its 17 years of operation. Lead by a volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of local faith and business leaders, Dr. Evans has been the Executive Director of the center since its inception. Not everyone that seeks help at Community Christian Counseling are active in the Christian faith, but the center has come to be seen as a valuable asset to the Wabash Valley Christian community. Churches from 6 surrounding counties, from multiple denominations, refer their congregants to the counseling center, and many of the churches assist with counseling fees. While the center does no insurance billing for services, its fees are modest and are set according to a sliding scale, depending on family income. Active clergy and their immediate family members are not charged for counseling at Community Christian Counseling.
