Reigning Grace Counseling Center: Who Are We?

Our mission at RGCC is simple: you. We exist to counsel and restore Christians, evangelize the lost, train individuals and churches in the practice of biblical counseling, and lead those who struggle with sinful and addictive habits to help, healing, and hope in Jesus Christ.

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12

Reigning Grace will be at the annual ACBC conference in Santa Clarita, CA! Meet us there and come by our booth to say hi. Check out the bookstore and pick up a copy of our books! Can’t wait to see everyone there!

Did you know that Reigning Grace has Biblical Counseling blogs for both Men and Women? See below for the latest blog post.

Biblical Counseling For Women Blog

Responding to Sexual Demands in Marriage

In the latest blog, Jenna Bogard discusses how we are to respond when it comes to sexual demands in marriage. “Scripture never tells us to use other people to serve ourselves, especially in marriage. It consistently tells us to look to the interests of others first. Satisfaction comes in dying to ourselves.”

Men’s Discipleship Blog

Transforming Transparency

In the latest blog, Dr. Jonathan Hayashi discusses the importance of transparency in the Church. “The loss of transparency in the church is a loss of vital power in the community. Transparency can be the first step in reviving the effectiveness of the church.”

Our director Julie Ganschow and two of our counselors Larry Ganschow & Jonathan Hayashi have an amazing opportunity to speak at the 2023 APBC conference in Tokyo Japan! This November 2-4th. This year’s theme is The Sufficiency of Scripture in Counseling. Please keep these three individuals in your prayers. If you feel led to give financial towards the trip you can here!

Reigning Grace Institute will be headed back down to Albuquerque from October 6-7 for Module 5 training!

Substance Abuse/Addiction Counseling

The negative effects of addiction are far-reaching. The use and abuse of drugs and alcohol bring consequences in the form of family troubles, legal difficulties, poor health, and problems at work. Entire families are affected by drug and alcohol abuse and addiction. Directed by a Missouri-credentialed substance abuse provider and biblical counselor, we provide education, counsel, and mentoring to individuals and families in the areas of substance abuse and related problematic behaviors, financial counseling, marital counseling, parenting issues, and vocational counseling. You will learn the heart-level reasons for the desire to drink and use drugs. You will be equipped to overcome the desires of the flesh that are holding you captive and you will finally understand how to be free from the bondage, guilt, shame, and pain that this lifestyle brings.

We stand ready and equipped to help you get your life back to the place where it once again brings glory to God. Learn more and apply here - we are ready to help!
