Mission and Values
We’re on a mission to lead people in to BetterDays by connecting them to the unchanging love of Jesus.
We are focused on the full spectrum of leaders within the Christian church, including full-time employees, part-time employees, volunteers, ministry leaders, and missionaries.
Although we have a special interest in serving and aiding church leadership, our biblical counseling services are open to all who may be interested.
We do this through counseling
guided by our core values:
We believe in the gospel of Jesus. There is nothing we can do to earn God’s love and salvation and nothing we can do to lose His love. We believe reconciliation with God through Christ alone brings rest to the soul. This declaration of peace by the grace of God is accepted by faith. We do not offer a system or a three-step process for change, but a person, a Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
We believe the primary context of counseling should be in community. Therefore, we come alongside the church as a partner in ministry and seek to involve them when possible in the process. Our goal is to join God in the work He is doing through His body and help encourage counseling within the local church.
We believe that the Holy Spirit brings transformation to every area of a believer’s life, primarily using the Word of God to teach, correct, instruct, and comfort. We believe the Bible is inerrant and inspired by the living God and that it is a fountain of living water that consumes the barren soil of self-reliance and promotes a harvest rooted in the worship of God eternal.
We believe we were created to glorify God by enjoying Him. All our counseling is done with this foundation and goal in mind. Our passion is to see God magnified and clients experience their maximum satisfaction in Christ as they experience the gospel’s transforming power. The more we are transformed by and conformed to the image of Christ, the more equipped we are to glorify God in all things.
Our history is part of His Story.
Founded in 2002 by former pastor Chad Karger, the mission of BetterDays Counseling has always been to serve the Body of Christ through biblical counseling. We offer biblical counseling, training, and support to anyone in need, including church leaders, church members, and the public. We believe that serving the Church in this way is part of God’s plan of redemption and healing for all through the power of the Gospel of Jesus.
Through advocate-care, one-on-one counseling, and connection with church leadership, BetterDays Counseling lessens the counseling load on local pastors. It offers our experience and expertise to all to give hope and help to anyone in need.
