Sometimes we can feel that we’re being “pruned” and plucked at by life! It can be uncomfortable, confusing and difficult. The Branches counselors would like to come alongside and support you in facing such times; to grow in Him and ‘bear much fruit.’ The Branches Counseling Ministry at GateWay Bible Church provides an opportunity for you to get qualified Christian counseling support.
“I am the vine, you are the branches.” John 15:5a
