Christian counseling is the process in which a professional counselor uses the tools of the mental health profession, the truths of the Bible, and the wisdom of life experience to help those in need.
Oasis Bethany Church of God has three Certified Christian Counselors to help you in your time of need
Dr. Randall Cowart, Ph.D – Randall directs the counseling ministry at Oasis Bethany as the Minister of Pastoral Counseling. He holds a Ph.D in Clinical Christian Counseling as well as a Master of Arts in International Business with a concentration in business psychology. Dr. Cowart’s life experiences from a childhood in a dysfunctional family, to a high school for troubled boys, to the battlefields of Vietnam, to a successful business career, allow him to connect with people from all walks of life. Since his re-dedication to God just over ten years ago, Randall acknowledges that he “hasn’t always been a preacher,” but plans to “spend the last third of his life working for God.” He is married to Judy.
Judy Cowart, M.A. – Judy holds a Master of Arts in Clinical Christian Counseling.
