Kris Browning

He and his wife Liz have an immense love for Jesus and care deeply for all those in our church and community. His attention to detail, passion for leadership development, and pastoral nature will continue to lead our Shawnee Alliance family to Jesus and the mission of "Transformed Lives".

John is a talented and humble guy who is passionate about Jesus and leading His people into authentic, spirit-filled worship. Through creating spirit filled opportunities to worship in community, John provides the congregation opportunities to connect with God while growing in faith.

Our goals in Pastoral Counseling are to guide and help individuals discover Christ-centered answers to a wide range of personal, relational, financial or other challenges. We have trained counselors and pastors who facilitate a free service for individuals seeking guidance for a variety of issues including marital and family relationships, communication and intimacy, parenting, grief and loss, anger and bitterness, inner personal struggles, and spiritual discouragement. Our volunteers receive extensive training, ongoing supervision, and continuing education.

 

If you are someone who could benefit from counseling, you're not alone! We have hundreds from our congregation who have (and still) meet with our counselors monthly and weekly. If you would like to schedule an appointment or just have some questions answered, please reach out.
