1-2-1 Peer Counseling: grace, truth, compassion and confidentiality for your situation.

Our Peer Counseling Ministry is a biblically based, short-term, no cost ministry of the Desert Vineyard. We earnestly strive to incorporate and integrate God’s Word, prayer, and the best counseling techniques available. We have a team of trained peer counseling volunteers that approach each situation with grace, truth, compassion, & confidentiality. Our desire is to offer God’s hope, healing & wholeness to assist people on their journey to become who He intends them to be.  

Our peer counselors will meet one on one with individuals of the same gender one hour per week for up to eight weeks to talk through the challenges they are facing and offer guidance, prayer and truth.  Counseling sessions are scheduled in one of our safe, calm, comfortable counseling rooms in the church Ministry Building.



We offer pre-marriage counseling to couples who are engaged or thinking about engagement. Our pre-marriage counselors are trained to help couples discover the joys and difficulties faced in marriage and prepare them for that big commitment. This counseling is required for those seeking to be married through the Desert Vineyard and our pastors.
