“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

Gods’ Word tells us that there is hope under any circumstance, and there’s hope for you.

The therapists at Summit provide Bible-based counseling and a broad range of services to provide hope for you wherever you are in life. Learn more about the topics are common to many people.

Other services include family, marital, individual counseling, support and educational resources for issues relating to anxiety, stress, grief, crisis, terminal illness, abuse, addictions, self-injury, parenting and step-parenting, financial management, sexual identity, children’s issues, women’s issues, men’s issues, spiritual and religious concerns, and academic issues. Wherever you are in life, there’s hope for you.

Our family is evidence of God’s grace.

Dr. Ivan Parke


We are not meant to be alone. Research shows that it is in a small group that people learn best from others who are walking together. Isolation kills, but in community, health is restored.

Premarital Counseling

Whether or not you’re holding your wedding at First Baptist Church Jackson, the counseling ministry of First Baptist Church Jackson stands ready to assist you as you begin a life-long commitment called “marriage.” The way we do this is to provide the necessary counseling that will bind the two of you together as a couple and with God.

Financial Mentoring

The unexpected happens when you least expect it. Financial pressure can put an unbearable strain on individuals and marriages and sometimes you need some coaching to find a way out.

Testing Services

Our Testing Services include Comprehensive Educational Evaluation, Academic Achievement, Intelligence Testing, ADHD Evaluation, and more.
