The Care Ministries at Parkway Hills provide a place for those who are hurting to experience spiritual healing. Life sometimes brings tragedies that can break our spiritual legs, making it near impossible to walk with God on our own. These groups provide the godly support needed to heal and get back into the race Christ has called us to run (Hebrews 12:1-3).


No matter what difficulty you are walking through, there is a place for you. It’s okay to be where you are, but our desire is not for you to stay there. Through the power of the Spirit and loving support from fellow believers, healing is possible.


The counseling ministry offers a trustworthy group of counselors who provide professional guidance.

Christ-centered, professional counseling is available through our campus with licensed professional counselors that have years of education, life experience, and professional practice to help direct the healing process.

Our treatment approach addresses the whole person; emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Both male and female counselors are available and fees are low compared to other professional services in our community.

Reaching Your Prodigal

Prodigals come in many forms. We often think of the defiant ones as prodigals, but there are other types that break our hearts: embarrassing, intellectual, lukewarm, and religious prodigals. The word prodigal means wasted. Like the younger son in Jesus' parable, many of our loved ones are wasting their lives. Learn how to love them no matter what form of wasted they choose. Understanding, encouragement, and real solutions for parents who want to do the right thing but are not quite sure exactly what that might be. 

An insightful, practical guide for grandparents and parents everywhere. This is a hopeful and encouraging session for reaching your prodigal.
