The heartbeat of Pastoral Care is to respond to and encourage people in our church and in our community who are experiencing challenging times. It is our desire that those we help will have renewed hope and purpose and experience the truth of Christ’s love.
Part of being part of a church family is being there during times of loss. Losing a loved one can be one of the most difficult and painful times in life. Our Pastoral Care Team is here to help guide you with decisions a family faces with the death of a loved one. Please click here to start the planning process.

We know life is hard, and sometimes professional help is needed to deal with issues that arise. We desire to minister to the mind, body, and soul. If you decide that you need help, our referral counselor will seek to match you with a professional specifically trained to help you with your need. All of the counselors on our list are certified by the state of Georgia, with a few being in professional ministry positions that do not require a license.
A referral is not an endorsement by Johnson Ferry. If you are interested in a referral, please call (770) 794-2978. Your call will be confidential. Our counseling ministry does not operate as a crisis center. If you have an emergency, please call 911 and ask for a crisis-intervention officer or go to the emergency room. If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts, please call the suicide and crisis hotline at 988.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis pregnancy, we are here to help. We offer confidential free counseling and assistance. To get started, click here and fill out the confidential form.
