Encounters In Joy Ministries


Our Purpose

Encounters In Joy Ministries is based on James 1:2 ". . . count it all joy when you fall . . ." NKJV.


Our Ministry

Encounters In Joy Ministries is a Biblical Counseling Ministry of First Baptist Church Carl who's goal is two fold. First we provide family counseling based on Biblical principles and practices. Second we train lay persons to provide family counseling in their local Churches and surrounding communities. We are not, nor do we pretend to be licensed therapist or trained psychologist, but simply Christian men and women reaching out to help those around us. There is no charge for our services although donations are accepted through First Baptist Carl.
