Do You Need Counseling?
We offer members short-term counseling (1-5 sessions) focusing on your current concern. (Members consist of those who are within or have completed membership classes along with right hand of fellowship.) We will also help you get connected to resources for ongoing support. Our counseling team consists of licensed counselors, associate counselors, students pursuing a master’s degree, and lay counselors. We are not a crisis center and do not offer long-term counseling. If you would like to support the ministry you can by making a donation of $40.00 per session. We do not accept insurance.

The gift of prayer is one to be grateful for at all times. This support group values our God-given gift and connects us all through a chat that’s available to your prayers and prayer requests 24/7. We look forward to interceeding and agreeing in prayer with you, in Jesus name!
Pornography creates a trap that keeps people coming back, but it’s a sin that steals precious joy & life. Yet even if one desires to stop, it’s difficult to escape the trap and often requires some outside help.

One of our core values is to connect with others in community whether that’s in serving within a ministry, connecting in life groups, and more!
If I’m in pursuit or a support group can I still proceed with counseling sessions?
Absolutely! The only thing we would not necessarily encourage is having two different counseling paths or treatment plans at one time so that the individual, couple, or family is fully engaged.

No! While we do accept a donation of $40 per session there is not a cost or fee in order to proceed.

We do not! We encourage couples to register for OCC’s premarital classes for the most substantial content for couples pursuing the life long commitment of marriage.

That’s correct however we do offer resources and referrals to non-members along with a free assessment, if preferred!
