July 23-31


"Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

— Galatians 6:2

CBF-endorsed pastoral counselor Mary Ellen Yates of Louisville, Kentucky, has the blessing of ministering to individuals from adolescence to senior adulthood. She serves a dual role: as a licensed marriage and family therapist and pastoral counselor in a private counseling practice, and on the ministry staff of St. Matthews Baptist Church, where she leads the HUGG Ministry, a pastoral care ministry with the congregation's less mobile members who live in nursing homes, retirement centers, and assisted living centers. Whether it be individuals, couples, or families who are seeking emotional, relational, and spiritual healing through pastoral counseling, or elderly church members who are making peace with the changes of later life, pray that God would give Mary Ellen wisdom and discernment as she creates a sacred space for healing and hope. Pray that those within her care would experience God's love and grace.
