Counseling

Everyone needs help. Whether you’re getting ready for marriage, trying to let go of your anxiety, or battling depression, it can be hard to ask for the help we need.

God cares about our whole selves, which is why we have a partnership with Brent Ellens, PsyD, a Christian counselor in Holland who offers counseling appointments at the VictoryPoint building one day a week.  Because we believe in the value of counseling, VictoryPoint subsidizes the cost of these appointments for those who call VictoryPoint home.

Setting Up an Appointment

To make an appointment call the church office at (616) 738-1800 between 9-4 on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday, or email the office at victorypoint@vpm.org.

If VictoryPoint is not your church home, you can call Brent’s office in Holland directly at (616) 355-0549.
