The Johnson Ferry Counseling Ministry has a variety of support groups available. Drawing strength from others who have experienced and conquered specific challenges is a healthy approach to take. Isolation is the natural, yet harmful reaction to emotional and spiritual pain. We encourage you to reach out to others and experience Christ's love and compassion through our support groups.
