My name is Bob Dixon, and I am the founder and lead counselor of Symboulos Ministries. Several years ago the Lord planted a seed in my heart to provide biblically based counseling services to the body of Christ. After a long incubation period, that seed has finally begun to sprout and unfold its first leaves to the light of day. Hopefully, in the years to come, Symboulos Ministries will enjoy the wonderful privilege of bearing much fruit for our Lord Jesus Christ, to the benefit of His people.
We are in the process of finalizing some details but wanted to go ahead with the launch of the website, particularly to offer hope and encouragement that help is on the way! We especially want you to begin using the website to discover the counseling services and other resources that Symboulos Ministries has to offer. For example, our Books link provides many resources regarding theology, important church doctrines, and issues related to abuse. We also have posted teaching/preaching messages and videos on the Audio and Video link that can be helpful for those interested in exploring different perspectives on important subjects, such as The Authority of the Church, The Authority of Leaders, Responsibility of the Church, and other important topics relevant to our Christian experience.
In the near future, I will be visiting specific locations to engage in individual counseling sessions, particularly where issues of spiritual abuse may be relevant. If you are interested in scheduling a counseling session, please fill out the Confidential Contact Form. That way, we will have an idea of how much time is needed to devote to each particular geographic location. Once the need is determined, we will post the dates and times of availability on the Monthly Newsletter link.
Initially, we are targeting Richmond and Fairfax, Virginia, as well as Gaithersburg, Maryland. Eventually we hope to reach other locations as the Lord leads and provides.
With your help, Symboulos Ministries is looking forward in faith to being an effective resource of biblically based counseling for the body of Christ at large. Please feel free to forward our website to your friends, family, and pastors.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 ESV
Thank you for your prayers and support,
Founder, Symboulos Ministries
