About Us

Who We Are

Christian Counseling Service was founded by Rev. Wayne Williams in 1980 for the purpose of providing pastoral therapy and Christian growth experiences for individuals, couples, families, and churches. Under the new direction of Rev. Ken Cross, CCS continues as a ministry of The United Methodist Churches of the Atlanta-Marietta District. We seek to offer quality counseling and training from a sound Christian and therapeutic base. It is our belief that growth emerges with the integration of both the emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives. It is also our belief that growth is related to our significant relationships, most often our families and spouse. In addition to traditional counseling the Christian Counseling Service also offers: Pre-Marital Counseling, Couple Retreats, and Classes and Seminars on family life, stress, and grief.

Pastoral Therapist

Rev. Ken Cross, M. Div., LMFT, is the Pastoral Therapist and Director for Christian Counseling Services.

Ken has worked in church ministry for over 20 years. He has served on staff with churches in the Atlanta Marietta District including Bethany UMC in Smyrna and Marietta First UMC in Marietta.

At Christian Counseling Services we are committed to offering quality counseling at a fee that does not prohibit anyone’s involvement. We believe that clients benefit in being financially responsible for the therapy that is offered and require payment at the end of each of our appointments. Our rates are negotiated on a sliding scale based on household income. If you have specific questions about our rates please contact us.
