"Caring People Sharing God’s Love"

Rev. Faith Richardson

I am a native of Jacksonville, Florida where I graduated from Paxon School for Advanced Studies. I attended Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia where I received a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Psychology. I attended Mercer University where I received a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (Penfield College) and a Master of Divinity from the McAfee School of Theology. 

As a Clinician: I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a National Certified Counselor with the National Board of Certified Counselors and Certified Master Addiction Counselor. As a therapist, I conduct assessments, do individual/group counseling, and utilize an eclectic approach to help people address personal issues such as depression, addiction, grief and loss. I specialize in pastoral care and spirituality.

As a Servant: I am an ordained Baptist minister and endorsed by the Progressive National Baptist Convention. I have served as an associate pastor in several churches and within various areas of ministry including children, youth, and administration.

As a Leader: I am a staff chaplain for a hospital system where I shepherd patients, families and staff members through prayer, conducting worship, special ordinances, crisis interventions, and pastoral counseling. In addition, I provide education on spiritual topics to the hospital as well as the West Georgia community.

I consider it a privilege and an honor to serve God by serving people. I enjoy the ministry to which God has called me.

In my spare time, I enjoy jazz music, theater, reading and sporting events. My biggest joy is being a mother to my son Joshua.
