Are you seeking hope and help during a difficult time?

At Mount Hermon Baptist Church, we believe that God’s Word is sufficient to help us with life’s most challenging difficulties that we may walk through. Life can be overwhelming sometimes and it helps to have someone you can talk to. At Mount Hermon, we are committed to walking alongside you to offer Godly counsel through the trying season that you are in. We want to encourage and equip you with Biblical truth that gives you lasting hope. 

 

1 Timothy 3:16-17

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 

 

2 Peter 1:3

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence.”

 

We believe that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness here on earth through His Word. This does not mean that we will not go through hard times. We will. We live in a broken and fallen world because of sin (Gen 3). However, God has shown us that through submitting our lives to Him and living according to Biblical principles we can have hope and help even in the midst of this broken world.

Casey Speck

Women's Biblical Counselor

Casey Speck desires to work alongside individuals and families in the local church as they process life’s most difficult circumstances, providing empathy, and biblical guidance from Scripture. 

 

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Counseling from Boyce College and a Master of Arts in Christian Education from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. She is also continuing her training through pursuing a biblical counseling certification through ACBC, The Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. 

 

She formerly served as an Associate Student Minister at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL, and as a Girls Minister at Highview Baptist Church in Louisville, Ky. In these roles she had the privilege of counseling, teaching, and discipling adolescents and women with the intention of equipping them with biblical principles to see change in their lives at a level of depth.

 

Casey got married to Cody Speck, Kids and Student Pastor at Mount Hermon, and moved to Danville in April 2020. She started serving at Mount Hermon in September 2020 as our biblical counselor to women. 

 

One of her favorite bible passages is Galatians 6:9-10 “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”

What To Expect

  • Hours: Counseling is offered on Mondays between the hours of 8:00 am-5:00 pm at the Mount Hermon Baptist Church office. Sessions will be approximately 50 minutes in length. 
  • Confidentiality: Everything in the counseling room will be kept with strict confidentiality except where, in the counselor’s judgment, there is need to involve others (e.g. self-harm, criminal activity). 
  • Biblically-based Counsel: We believe that the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for faith and life. Therefore, our counseling is based on scriptural principles rather than those of secular psychology or psychiatry. Neither the pastoral nor the lay counselors of this church are trained or licensed as psychotherapists or mental health professionals, nor should they be expected to follow the methods of such specialists. 
  • Weekly Homework: We will assign you homework each week to complete and bring back the following week. Homework will include but not be limited to: reading, writing, listening, and viewing assignments. By attending your appointment, you are signifying you have completed such work in its entirety.
  • Commitment: In most cases, we ask that you commit to regular counseling appointments for a period of 2 to 3 months. Lasting change does not happen overnight. It takes time to develop new lasting habits and to see heart change.
  • Cost: Because we are a ministry, we want to serve you in the best way possible by making counseling affordable to your family. We ask that you pay $25 per session, with a minimum of one month (4 sessions) paid after your first session.
