Care & Help


Sometimes we need a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on, or a listening ear

At Kensington, we don’t pretend life is easy, and you don’t have to pretend you have it all together. We all go through hard times and need the support of others.

If you’re overwhelmed and need someone to talk you through your next steps, call a Campus Care Provider at the Help Bank.

Sometimes We Need More Than A Friend

We need a knowledgeable guide to help us through our situations. Someone we can trust to give us godly insight and advice.

Sometimes, when facing hard times, tough decisions, or stressful circumstances in our lives, investing in counseling is our best option. We believe Jesus is at the center of working through the healing process, but that process can be helped by an educated trained professional. Whether you need help in your marriage, parenting skills, workplace, or personal life, look at the list below for the counselors we know and trust.

We have selected counselors in the community who we believe will provide wise care and counsel to you.

Counselors We Trust

Before making a final decision on a counselor, we encourage you to interview more than one person so that you can find the most appropriate counselor for you.

Grief Recovery

Loss is always devastating; and there are new, especially painful circumstances as people have experienced sudden loss and have not been able to say goodbye or hold a traditional funeral. Whether due to COVID-19 or other reasons, if you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, it may be hard to feel optimistic about anything.

Grief Recovery, a study to guide you through grief and loss, is open to all. Each session is led by people who have experienced it themselves and includes a video seminar featuring interviews with top experts in the field, along with small group discussion. While you are encouraged to start the seminar at the beginning of the session, you may start the group at any time during its course.

Online via Zoom | Starting Monday Sept 21 - Dec 21 | 7-9pm | FREE

Grief Recovery

Kensington Visitation

Our dedicated volunteers bring encouragement and prayers of faith to those who are in local hospitals, medical centers, recovery centers and homebound. If you or someone you know would like to be blessed by such a visit, email [email protected] or call the Troy Campus during business hours at 248-786-0600.
