Scope Ministries International provides Biblical counseling for individuals, couples, and teenagers in the Oklahoma City area. Our counseling is unique in that instead of attempting to counsel individuals as to how they should conduct themselves, we teach that a person’s understanding of and relationship with the Heavenly Father determines their conduct.
We offer Be Transformed every ten weeks, and we strongly encourage persons seeking any form of counseling (family, couples or individual) to complete the Bible study or be enrolled; however, completion or enrollment is not initially required to meet with a counselor.
We believe that God provides His written Word for guidance as to how we should live, with real life focus on our relationship with Him. We believe the Bible is God’s wholly reliable instruction manual for life.
Our Biblical process includes teaching the application of the Bible in everyday situations. Most people continue until they have learned Biblical methods of thinking and acting – a process the Bible calls “renewing the mind.” In addition, while careful listening and empathy are a part of our process, the type of counseling offered by Scope is not passive, but directive in nature.
Our counselors do not possess the ability to change your life or fix your problems. The ultimate responsibility for growth rests with you and God. You are invited at any time to ask questions about the counselor with whom you are working, their methods, and the direction their ministry with you is headed.
We do offer an out-of-state program for those living outside of the Oklahoma City area that is only available based on staff scheduling.
- To schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, please complete the Intake Forms. Once completed, email forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also welcome to complete and submit the forms by fax, mail, or in person.
- Upon receipt, we will contact you within one to two business days to schedule an appointment.
- The triage appointment usually takes place within a week or so depending on your availability. During this initial appointment, you will receive recommendations for any of the following: individual counseling, coaching, class, small group, or course of direction. If a counselor is assigned, they will call you shortly to schedule. For further questions regarding this process, please contact us.
We are a non-profit organization and do not charge for counseling or take insurance. Our counselors do not receive a salary from Scope and are supported by your generous contributions. We suggest a minimum contribution of 0.1% of your annual income per session hour (i.e., $30,000/year = $30/session). No one will denied services for inability to contribute. Donations are tax deductible.
