Vinekeepers Counseling

Vinekeepers is a Christian Counseling Ministry created for the purpose of sharing God’s mercy and compassion to those with emotional, relational, and spiritual struggles. Healing the wounded heart and freeing imprisoned souls has been one of God’s goals throughout history. As the wise Master Healer, Jesus is prophetically referred to by Isaiah as “Wonderful Counselor”. The Holy Spirit’s name is “The Comforter” and allows us to participate in God’s work by coming alongside and helping others to grow using our God given gifts.

Growth and change are essential if we are to find the healing that God wants for us. Although change is difficult, it is rarely as painful as running from our problems. God desires us to be conformed into His Image. If we learn to embrace change as a way of life, we may learn to avoid many of life’s pitfalls before we stumble and fall. Vinekeepers is committed to assisting people as they learn to heal and grow.
