His High Places offers hurting pastors and Christians a quiet, restorative place to receive biblical counseling and insight into life's challenges.

Our clients are housed in our lovely “bed and breakfast" type home in their own private rooms where they receive more than 20 hours of individual counseling per week.

Pulled out of their daily life and placed in a comfortable atmosphere, our clients are given time to rest, reflect and practice the presence of God. 

Our main location is in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

If your marriage is falling apart...

If you are suffering from debilitating anxiety and depression... 

If you are burnt out, discouraged and disappointed... 

There is hope and healing.

It often takes more than hourly sessions to experience lifelong transformation.

 

For that very reason, we offer one and two week intensive visits.

 

Our counseling sessions are one-on-one.


 

Throughout 35 years of Christian counseling, we have helped more than 3,500 clients and the majority of those are still living in the victory they experienced here even after 10, 20, and 30 years.

Psychology has its merits and our counselors are well-educated in psychological principles, however, it is the healing power of the Holy Spirit that brings about lasting transformation.

 

 

Each individual is different and we place a heavy emphasis on receiving guidance from the Holy Spirit as to the best way to address the heart of an issue. 

Together with you, we seek to discover the roots of the problem and design a recovery plan that is God-directed.

 

We don’t want to just scratch the surface.


 

Our counseling approach is to go deeper than behavioral modification by placing the source of issues under deep prayer therapy, biblical inner healing (Eph. 3:16) and acknowledgement of spiritual warfare. 

One of our highest aims is to see that you are accurately understood — but it does not stop there.

God has answers and solutions for you. 

 

PROMISE OF CONFIDENTIALITY

Your personal story is of highest value to us and to the Lord. We consider your story sacred and strive to create a safe and private environment. We want our clients to feel welcomed, accepted and appreciated. 

As a culture of honor and respect, we do not judge or condemn our clients. Instead, we aim to love, esteem, and celebrate our clients in the manner Christ Jesus would. 

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." - Romans 8:1 (NIV)


STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

We believe that the ultimate purpose in living is to know God, glorify Him and to attain eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, beginning within our own families and then reaching out to a suffering humanity that does not know of His love.

We believe we are called to be faithful members of His Church, regularly attending worship and submitted under the care and covering of pastors and elders. To us, the mission of the Church is to evangelize, teach and heal until He returns. 

 
 

Therefore His High Places remains orthodox in all respects, that we might be a faithful part of His mission to prepare God’s children to live in fellowship with the Father for eternity.

 

The Holy Spirit has led His High Places to believe fully in the simple orthodoxy of the major creeds of the faith, the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds, the Augustinian and Wesleyan Confessions. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God of the Father, that He died on the cross for our redemption, was raised again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He has given us His Holy Spirit and the gifts and fruit of the Spirit that we might serve Him and His Kingdom.

In response to the dual mandates of Malachi 4:5-6 and Matthew 17:11, we are called to be instruments of writing, teaching, counseling and healing. We believe all teaching and healing is an expression of the love and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. Neither teaching nor healing is something we do on our own accord, but rather it is the work of the Holy Spirit. This is especially true in inner healing (the internal cleansing of our heart by the Holy Spirit).


 

Our goal is that the inner man and the outer man line up more as a result of our work here at His High Places. “Inner healing” is the application of the blood, cross, and resurrection life of our Lord Jesus Christ to deep wounds and practices in our hearts, setting us free to walk as God intended when He created us. These are applied by diagnosis and prayer, but prayer is the basis of all our ministry. Inner healing, spiritual direction, and application is all about sanctification and transformation.

 

 

Sanctification is the process in which the Holy Spirit brings us daily to more death of self on the cross and to newness of life in Him. Transformation is the process of sanctification in which the Holy Spirit transforms all our degradations to glory, our weaknesses to strengths, and our deserts to gardens of blessing.

We believe God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. Therefore, we are not overly problem-focused, and do not try to change a guests’ life history. We allow the Holy Spirit to change history’s effects in our lives as we are changed into His likeness from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18).

 

His High Places is called to crisis and crossroads.

Our prayer is that the Church be better equipped (Ephesians 4: 12) as His instrument for the sanctification and transformation of God’s children, and that the Church stand in unity of faith and preparation for His return.
