When Christian Counseling Associates (CCA) thinks of how we are different, five concepts come to mind:

Credibility –  The Christian Counseling Associates (CCA) and Cornerstone Lodge Ministries staff is constantly at work to develop stronger character and higher levels of competency in our work.  CCA’s staff are people who value and practice personal study, prayer, Bible reading, and spiritual and intellectual growth.

Consistency – “People don’t listen to you speak, they watch your feet.”  This anonymous quotation has great power with us at CCA.  An important part of our job is to increase trust accounts we have with people with whom we counsel and also refer back and forth.  We’ll be the first to admit that we have a long way to go, but more and more, we really try to be sure that we do “walk the walk.”

Alignment – Our commitment to the “Real Heart – Real Change” attitude begins with our alignment with Christ.  As we study to understand and apply truths that lie in the heart of the Bible, we’re learning more every day about the wonders of God’s grace!  We also study current literature and research to better understand what is going on in the hearts and minds of respected scholarly men and women in order that our service is fresh and timely.

Reputation – In 2006, when CCA was reorganized under the Cornerstone Lodge Ministries umbrella, we committed to devote time and energy every day to restore our high trust reputation.  We do this to insure that our client – and referral – base will have increasing comfort in staying with us longer and sending more people to us for help.

Contribution – Giving back is a natural outgrowth of our “Real Heart – Real Change” mindset.  Every counselor at CCA is actively involved in both church and civic giving.  We all give financial support to the churches we attend, and to selected local and national charitable organizations.  We are also available to make volunteer contributions by leading workshops and conferences in area churches, institutions, and support groups.

Christian Counseling Associates (CCA) is different because CCA stays on top of current trends in counseling and because CCA holds fast to a belief that God’s power help us change is immutable.
