ABOUT OUR MINISTRY

CCM of WNY…offering care and showing compassion to a broken world

our history

CCM was founded 1983 by Dr. Timothy P. Chambers, our Executive Director; and is governed by a Board of Directors made up of Christian professionals in the Western New York area.

We emerged from a growing need in our area for faith-based counseling services from professionally trained counselors. We firmly believe in integration of scriptural principles with daily living, and that God can use the study of mind and human behavior to heal past wounds and present conflicts. Therefore, we work with pastors and Christian organizations to minister to the Body of Christ. We are a para-church organization that differs from a private practice in that we are nonprofit, charitable, and tax-exempt ministry. We are committed to reaching as many persons as possible by offering affordable services from quality Christian professionals. While we do have an established fee, we also provide a sliding scale fee which takes into consideration family income and number of dependents. Some churches serve as third parties to help their members pay for counseling.
