“Compassionate Care Rooted in Biblical Truth”

About Rev. Rod West, DBS, BCLC

hired 6 times on Thumbtack

I serve as a Senior Pastor ministering to a diverse community in the North Charleston area. My duties vary from spiritual care to administration.

In regards to Pastoral Care and Coaching my primary work deals with marrital and relationship issues. I work with both individuals and couples using a variety of strategies and techniques to strengthen families and budding relationships based upon sound biblical principles. Specialized and interactive action plans are tailored for each individual or couple following every session. These plans provide weekly guidance between sessions and encourage growth.

For those who want specialized care but can't meet in the office I now offer sessions through Skype. Technological advances are allowing us greater access to help more individuals and couples than ever before, and like many other helping professionals I too want to provide opportunities for each client'¬ôs needs to be met.

I also provide a 12-hour premarital pastoral care series over a 6 - 12 week time period for those seeking to start their marriage on a solid and healthy foundation. During these sessions we use inventories and open dialogue to examine compatibility, personal traits and other tendencies that may lead to future relationship issues. Included with this program are my services to officiate the wedding, writing the vows, or assisting the couple in writing their on personal vows.

    I met Pastor Rod West through my (now) husband. Pastor Rod walked through our relationship with us, and went on the guide us through our premarital counseling and wedding ceremony. He is a phenomenal Biblical counselor, with outstanding wisdom and knowledge of The Lord. He was never afraid to challenge us, but always did so with such grace and love. By the end of our premarital counseling, there were no words to truly describe how much Pastor Rod had blessed us with his time, patience, love, experience, and wisdom. There is not a day that goes by that we do not act on a Biblical foundation we discussed with Pastor Rod. Not only does he help you reach and understand a marriage built on Christ, but he gives you applicable ways of placing Christ in your relationship. He is a dear friend and will always be someone we go to for wise counsel.

    He made this experience even more special for us, he helped guide us through vows and asked questions about what we would and wouldn't like to include. I highly recommended him!!!

    Rod is an excellent counselor and I would recommend him to anyone who is genuinely seeking healing. He is kind, compassionate and understanding, but will be honest and straightforward with you. He will speak the truth in love, and if you listen to him, you will find healing. I am so thankful that I was led to this Godly man. I would not have the emotional health I enjoy in my life if it were not for him.

    Rod West was my pastor before he moved to Charleston and he counseled me through many hard times in my life. He has a vast amount of knowledge of the Bible and he knows how to explain it to you so you can not only understand it, but also apply it to your life. He has the ability to help you see things much clearer, which can really assist with making necessary decisions or changes. Rod is non-judgmental and encouraging. His love of God and yearning to serve him coupled with his education, experience and genuine desire to help people in their daily walk, makes him one of the best counselors I have known. I miss his support and guidance!

    I have known Rod West for over 10 years. Rod has given me coaching and counceling for much of these years. Rod performed premaritial counceling for my fiance and I 7 years ago. My wife and I have been happily married for over 6 years now. The councel that we received from Rod has been instrumental in our marriage.
    Rod has personally provided coaching and counseling for me in my occupation and marriage. I am a bivocational minister who works retail managment. Rod is a stellar coach with a wide knowledge base and certifications. Of course, the best part of Rod's services are that they are Bible based as well as steeped in such rich wisdom and experience.
    Hands down, I would recommend Rod to anyone. Actually, I have been recommending people to Rod for councel and coaching!

    Pastor Rod counseled me on an individual basis and also counseled my husband and me together when our marriage was basically over. He bibically put us on the path to a whole new beginning. This was after we had counseling through a regular counseling agency and zero biblical backing for a few months with that previous counseling. His guidance, honesty, sincerity and caring led my husband to salvation and baptisim. That was 3 years ago this November and our marriage of nearly 35 years was saved with Pastor Rods guidance. What seemed impossible for reconcilation of a very broken marriage is now a new marriage with our priorities straight. Pastor Rod is amazing and has a way of guidance that no one could ever have matched.
