Christian DISC Personality Assessment

What Makes the Christian DISC​® Different from other personality assessments?

The Christian DISC® is distinct not only because it integrates scripture, but because it is specially designed for counseling, ministry, and use with small groups. 
Users receive a detailed 14 pg. computer-generated report where they learn more about themselves, how they relate to others through scripture-related applications, and about personality theory as a whole.

 "If you look for me wholeheartedly, 

you will find me."  (Jeremiah 29:13 NLT) 

I turned toward counseling as my life became chaotic and unmanageable. I found peace for my soul - Michelle

Our therapy is short term, solution-focused, and based on Christian values.

A relationship with God is the basis for peace and joy in our hearts. Together we can identify this pathway to peace for you.

I believe this is possible in sessions that are client-centered, solution-focused goals that lead us to a pathway of peace. With blessings, Rita

I'm talking with a friend - I have my way of thinking and I believe it is right - Then a new idea comes along, and suddenly, I realize how my old thinking has trapped me, and my old behaviors have kept me trapped.

This is my Habit of Thinking! What is your habit of thinking doing to you? It can be destructive & hurt you.... and the people around you - without you knowing what is happening or why it is happening. Come and let us explore your habit of thinking!

Do you hear yourself saying: I want to find my purpose?
How do I find my purpose? We read in 1 Thessalonians 2:4b "Our purpose is to please God, not people." & Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Life started out with "it's not about you!" I read how Jesus prepared His disciples to know God & love Him (Worship) - To love each other (Fellowship) - to grow in God's Word (Discipleship) - To Serve (Ministry) - To tell others about Him (Mission). This sounds like His Purpose is for Me to take action by following His instructions. How does it sound to you? This is my ministry here at Hands in Service Christian Counseling...would you be interested in taking this pathway with me? Paul said in 2 Corinthians 9:12 - "This service you perform not only meets the needs of God's people, but also produces an outpouring of gratitude to God."
