Our counseling ministry is under the direction of Dr. David Shaw. He holds a doctorate in Pastoral Counseling and is a member of several counseling associations.

At Peachtree Corners Baptist Church, we are committed to serving God by helping others. Christian counseling starts with the understanding that the Bible is more than a book of facts; it is truth intended to make a difference in the way we live.

It is our belief that Scripture speaks to all of life’s problems, but that sometimes we all need the careful thought and prayerful wisdom of a trained and caring professional to offer encouragement, support, and insight during life’s difficult times of trial. Ultimately, the Bible points us to a relationship with a Person – Jesus Christ. The academic degrees our counselors have pursued in order to serve others are nothing compared with the surpassing worth of knowing Christ. Our greatest joy is to direct others to Him.

DivorceCare is a special weekly seminar and support group for people who are separated or divorced. It's a place where you can be around people who understand what you are feeling. It's a place where you can hear valuable information about ways to heal from the hurt of divorce.

Each Wednesday night meeting covers a specific topic and is "self-contained". We encourage people to start attending DivorceCare as soon as they hear about the program - even in the middle of a thirteen week session. You can continue through the next thirteen week session to cover any of  the topics you have missed. The group meets in D 306 at 6:30pm and our next session starts on Wednesday, August 8, 2017.

DC4K – Divorce Care 4 Kids is a program that helps children in grades one through six who are experiencing difficulties that are associated with separation or divorce in the family.  This class is offered twice a year.  Classes take place in a cozy room setting, where kids feel loved and secure.  Safekeepers (trained leaders), are sensitive to the needs and feelings of children in a separation or divorce situation, and help them find a deeper Connection2Christ that will enable children to feel His presence, comfort and peace, during this difficult time. 

Our next session will begin Wednesday, August 8, 2017. DC4K classes coincide with the Divorce Care class for Adults on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm.
