My Deep Waters Ministry (DWM) is a biblical counseling ministry that has 3 branches: Biblical Counseling, Christian Education & Discipleship Resources, and Missional work to the Homeless. If my personal ministry or a partner’s ministry falls in to these 3 categories, it is a DWM funded project, frequently with my oversight and involvement.
I counsel (one-on-one) in my home office or at various churches under the Pastor’s or Chaplain’s care, knowledge and follow up. I provide christian education and resources and sometimes funding for facilitation of small groups, and missional homeless advisement (an example is getting welfare secular youth into a Christian retreat along with a “faith essay” contest each year for the past 4 years). I work on a secular board of governance in the 5 county region welfare environment for homelessness of youth, representing myself as a biblical counselor, mentor and Christian voice in a sea of chaos.
I have partnered with Logan Hope school for a new small group after-school program for 8th graders for strengthening and encouragement and preparation for high school.
I counsel (generally) 7-8th graders at Logan Hope school, high school seniors in my immediate community (Conestoga HS, Berwyn and Great Valley SD, Malvern PA), college students and others who mainly suffer with anxiety. Ministry fruit has appeared in heart-change, growth and transformation out of the painful depths of suicide, sexual harm and loneliness and depression struggles. I am a Senior High youth teacher at my weekly church youth group for high school girls, teach adult Sunday School on occasion and am a member of our church’s Missions Committee (Great Valley Presbyterian, EPC).
Let me know how I can extend the love of Christ to you this day.
