Christ-centered care, support, and recovery

We're here to support you and help you grow closer to Jesus through the inevitable challenges of life. We provide support, care, and recovery groups as well as individual pastoral care, prayer ministry appointments, and Christian counselor recommendations.

  • Celebrate Recovery

    This Christ-centered 12-step program is for those dealing with any sort of hurt, habit, or hang-up. This can include struggles with relationships, anger, food, sex, porn, drugs, alcohol, finances, gambling, self-injury, family dysfunction, the effects of past abuse, and more.

  • Individual Counseling and Support

    NCC provides several avenues of support, guidance, education, and prayer, including:

    Prayer Ministry Appointments - These appointments, with pastors or trained, screened lay persons, cover the gamut of life from prayerfully managing emotions and heartache to discerning God's will or finding spiritual direction. Prayer ministry topics can include issues such as identity and restoration, careers and calling, relationships or brokenness, grief and loss, shame and anxiety, understanding prayer and the Spirit and more.

    Pastoral Care Appointments – Our campus pastors and volunteer pastoral care team members can meet with you 1-3 times and then refer you to more specialized help if that is needed.

    Counselor Recommendations - We  provide recommendations of Christian counselors in the DC metro area who address a broad range of issues. Unfortunately, most Christian counselors are not in-network on any insurance plans, but some insurance plans will reimburse you.

    To request a prayer ministry appointment, pastoral care appointment, or counselor recommendation, please fill out the following form.
