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:

The Gospel

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.

The Church

 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.

The Bible

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.

God’s Glory

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. 

The more we are transformed by and conformed to the image of Christ, the more equipped we are to glorify God in all things.
