17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.”     2 Corinthians 5:17-19



As a pastor and a counselor, I believe in a healing ministry to work with those who are tired of broken relationships or see themselves as victims, trapped by poor life choices, or life by meeting clients holistically. We accomplish this by recognizing and being willing to work with all aspects of their life’s journey, and for many, for the first time, including their spiritual elements.,

A little about me: I am retired from the Army (after 25 years). I hold a master’s in clinical counseling from Liberty University. I am in my 12th year serving as the Lead Pastor for Open Gate Community Church. I have married my high school sweetheart for over 42 years, and two grown kids and two grandchildren. I am SYMBIS (Save Your Marriage Before It Starts), trained for pre-marriage and marriage counseling. Other things about me are that I am a long-term gastric cancer survivor of 24 years.   I currently see clients at Well Connect Counseling Center at 1600 Lee Trevino; the church and Telehealth can be arranged. All counseling is done under the supervision of Dr. Debroh  Ontiveros.
