How much does Biblical counseling cost?

Abiding Word Ministries is a faith-based ministry, and we are not employed by any church. As such, we operate solely through the contributions of those who believe in or benefit from the ministry we offer.

If you desire to make a contribution, you can do that at the end of each appointment. If you desire to contribute online, you can go to abidingwordonline.org and click on “Give Online.”  All contributions are tax-deductible. It is our desire that everyone receive the counseling they need, whether or not they can contribute financially to the ministry of Abiding Word.
