The Covenants Pastoral Care Services is new to The Word House, Inc./Focus Consultation Services, as it is entirely Pastoral and Biblical in basis.

It differs from other services, in that it is not clinical, rather PASTORAL in nature, employing only the Holy Bible as basis for offered counsel and guidance.  The very same issues are addressed, only from a more Pastoral perspective.

Covenants Pastoral Care Services are self-funded, private pay, and thus not eligible for insurance reimbursement.

"Revitalize and Refresh,"  a Marriage Intensive is a unique offering of Covenants Pastoral Care Services, offering couples a guided weekend of reconnection, alone with God, themselves and each other.

Covenants Pastoral Care Services also include:

  • Couples Counsel
  • Personal Individualized Counsel
  • Pre-, Current, and Post-Marital Care
  • Marriage and Family Seminars and Educational Offerings
  • "Revitalize and Refresh" Marriage Intensives

"Revitalize and Refresh"

“Revitalize and Refresh” is a Marriage Intensive, lasting literally 48 hours.

Based in love, “Revitalize and Refresh" is a weekend directed toward removing obstacles to loving one another.

Through Christian and Biblical Pastoral Counsel and Care, impediments are removed.

Participants are asked to seriously examine themselves and then their marriage, for the likeness of Jesus Christ.

Walls of defensiveness are torn down.  Hearts are softened.  Healing even unto one's very soul.

The Clay House

The Clay House is in the historical district of Huntington, WV, which is located adjacent to the immediate downtown area. This provides quick and easy access to a wide range of shops, eateries, and restaurants, as well as the Pullman Square and Civic Center.

Amidst homes of similar character and age to both the West and East, The Clay House is of frame construction, built in the 1920's, and maintains many of its original features. The beautiful Craftsman hardwood floors and trim, original plaster walls and ceilings throughout, and a total of three Craftsman-style fireplaces lend to the home's rustic charm.

The Clay House has recently been renovated to be the perfect home-away-from home during your Covenants stay!
