Abiding Word Ministries

Abiding Word Ministries At Crabapple, our pastors are available for counseling. We recognize, however, that for all kinds of reasons, counseling services outside our church can be a great help. Crabapple is pleased to partner with Vic Smith at Abiding Word Ministries. In addition to being an ordained pastor, Vic is certified through and an active member of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors (NANC). Vic is firmly committed to a biblical counseling philosophy. His ministry is exclusively "one on one" with individuals and couples. Counselees have stated that Vic's personal approach, Biblical knowledge, wisdom, humility, and true caring has made the difference in finding hope and dealing with difficult situations.
