Courage is evidence of our faith in Christ, and faith is directly opposed to fear. Throughout the scriptures, we are encouraged to "fear not" literally hundreds of times, yet how are we do that? Fear manifests itself in our lives with many labels, such as anxiety, depression, anger and addictive behaviors. Many well-minded counselors will help you "work" on correcting your issues or undesirable behaviors. At Courageous, our goal is to journey with you in discovering the liberating power of Christ's presence within you. By design, only He meets our deepest needs and longings. His perfect love dispells the fear in us that literally fuels our issues. Courageous living is a journey. It's learning to "walk" by faith. It's how "we" walk too, and we want to walk with you.
Courageous is a non-profit ministry founded by its director Michael Chalmers, who answered the call to full-time ministry in 2002. Since that time he has served others with the biblical message of hope in Christ Jesus through one-on-one discipleship counseling, and through various teaching avenues and training courses. With sixteen years of counseling experience, and nearly a decade as co-founder & director of another non-profit ministry in the Upstate, Michael was called to develop Courageous, to show others the way out of their fear and into freedom. Courageous is a member organization of Network 220. Whether you're sure you don't know Christ Jesus, or consider Him your best friend, Courageous is a safe place for you to share your struggles and discover the abundant life He has to offer you.
The primary functions of Courageous fall into three categories:
1. Personal Discipleship / Counseling / Mentoring
