Hi my name is Barb Mulvey. I am the Director of Disciple Care at Hoffmantown Church. You are probably thinking, what does that mean, exactly? Let me explain. Bottom line, it means that when we meet with Christians to discuss the issues that are pressing in on them, we are going to look to the Word of God. We believe that God has a lot to say about life’s problems – anger, bitterness, sadness, anxiety, worry, adultery, betrayal, prodigals, drunkenness, sexual immorality, etc.
The men and women of the Bible were not without sin. Sometimes they were sinned against, like Tamar; sometimes they sinned, like David; sometimes heartache came from living in a fallen world, like floods, and drought, and sickness; sometimes Satan harassed and deceived; and sometimes brokenness comes because God is working directly in our lives. As we address the good, the bad, and the ugly of our lives we will be opening our Bibles to let the Word of God’s light shine. I believe that if people come to the church for help, we should give them Jesus. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says, “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” Our job is to listen, inquire, clarify, guide and help you find the righteous way through the trial you are in.
I am a certified Biblical Counselor from the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. I am the first of four in the state and one of hundreds across the nation. As part of the ministry at Hoffmantown Church, we offer four different avenues – Marriage Care, Biblical Guidance, Discipleship classes (Dgroups), and Biblical guidance training.
