Christian Counseling Connection, Inc. started out as the brainchild of three counselors from differing disciplines who met monthly for peer supervision and prayer support. Launching the agency with a grant from the Bakerville United Methodist Church, two counselors, a director and an office manager shared three small rooms in the first floor apartment of a private home. The incorporators immediately formed a board of directors (many of whom are still serving) filed for non-profit status, and began the process of becoming a state-licensed mental health agency.
Today CCC still has its ever-faithful director, but now there are seven therapists, an office manager and two office staffers. One of the strengths of the agency is the variety of disciplines represented by the licensed therapists: social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors and an advanced practice registered nurse.
Most of the staff meets weekly for office business, prayer, worship, and case-sharing.
As well as being sought out by private individuals, CCC receives referrals from physicians, state agencies, insurance companies, courts, attorneys, pastors and para-church organizations.
