If you’re going through a hard time and struggling; dealing with an addiction, marriage problem, or other issue; or simply need someone to talk with, the Care Ministry is here for you.

It’s free and it’s confidential.  As volunteer lay counselors, we are trained to bring the hope of Christ to hurting people. We provide one-to-one individual, couple, or family counseling, shepherding and discipling.  We are not professionals providing guidance as licensed mental health practitioners. We simply offer Christian counseling based on the Word of God and prayer led by the Holy Spirit.

To request and receive help from the Care Ministry, call New Life Church at 605-886-1977 or email  A lay counselor will call you to schedule a convenient time to meet.

New Life Care Ministry recently hosted an evening session called “Dealing with Depression and Helping Others who Struggle.” We recorded the audio for anyone who wasn’t able to attend, or for anyone who would like to listen again or share with a friend.

Why biblical counseling? 

  • To follow in Jesus’ steps and reach out to those who are hurting with the hope that only comes from God’s Word. “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Matthew 9:36

  • To fulfill the Great Commission. Our mission as a church is to be making disciples of Jesus Christ. Christian counseling is first and foremost helping people become more like Jesus Christ. Christian counseling is discipleship. “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

  • To equip the saints to do the work of ministry. We believe that it is critical that the leaders of the church are equipping others to do the work of ministry. So we will be providing opportunities for others to become lay counselors by making available the Biblical Counseling Center training courses and walking alongside those trainees. “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13
