Fresno, California, is known for its vast outdoors, but a new spiritual practice is bringing people together.
Fresno’s Spiritual Counseling Center, or SCPC, opened in January, just before the end of the summer.SCPC is a nonprofit group that offers free spiritual counseling and education for youth and adults.
The group was created in response to Fresno’s historic drought and has helped provide spiritual guidance to over 10,000 people, including youth and seniors, since it opened in 2014.
The SCPC is based at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, in the San Jose area, and is a free service.
The SCPC’s website states, “We are not just a Christian spiritual practice, we are a Christian family, we offer compassion to others through our love and compassion, and we provide support to individuals through our Christian faith.”
The SCPSC, the group’s website says, “is committed to building the best possible world for people.”
The group is currently serving a large-scale recovery mission to South Africa and is working on building a network of faith leaders to help people with spiritual issues.
The church, founded in 1989, was founded by Rev. Larry C. Williams, an ordained minister and spiritual director.
Williams was also an ordained priest and a member of the United Methodist Church.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that SCPC has been working to help the community recover from drought for over a year.
According to the Fresno Bee, Williams was a leader of the Fresno City Council, a key legislative body in the city.
Williams also serves on the board of the American Civil Liberties Union, the California Association of Counties, and the National Alliance of Churches and Humanists.
The newspaper reported that Williams, who also serves as a pastor in his church, has spoken at a number of national and international conferences.
He has served on the boards of several nonprofit organizations and has been listed as a member on the National Commission on Religion.
The group says it offers “intensive and compassionate counseling,” which focuses on “receiving spiritual healing and strengthening the relationships of family and friends.”
According to a news release from the group, SCPC “provides spiritual counseling for a range of emotional, spiritual and health issues” and that it is “committed to healing the earth through its work, and working to create a better world for all.”
The group is also committed to the community, as they are providing counseling to the homeless, the unemployed, and people who are facing unemployment.
The organization offers free, confidential services, and offers services in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
The Fresno Bee reported that the SCPC does not hold any religious affiliation.SCPSC is also looking for qualified volunteers to provide counseling.
