Qualified Clinical Pastoral Counseling

By Apostolics • For Apostolics

Watch How We Can Help

As qualified Clinical Pastoral Counselors, we specialize in marriage and pastoral counseling. We're equipped to help Pastors, Pastoral Staff and Church Members of the Apostolic faith. To easily meet with you, we employ face-to-face visits, video-conferencing sessions, webinars, and seminars.

Consider Helping Purchase Computer Equipment

DayStar Ministries, a 501(c)(3) organization, needs new computer equipment. Nearly 95% of clinical counseling employs video technology. Our current equipment desperately needs to be updated. Many churches are not set up for visual presentations, so being able to take the necessary equipment will be a blessing. Thank you for your consideration.

Goal: $3,200
$ Donated

We do pre, mid & post marriage counseling. We work with a variety of situations involving the individual, couples and families either on site or via video conferencing.

We minister on a variety of subject matters, and would love to come to your city and minister to your group or congregation. Let's discuss how we can be of service to you!

DayStar Ministries is certified as an Academic Institution by the N.C.C.A. We can also assist in certification as a Pastoral Counselor and/or receiving a degree in Pastoral Counseling.

Speak the Truth in Love

By Daniel Sirstad | July 6, 2019

Amid Paul’s longest sentence found in Ephesians chapter four is the admonition to “Speak the Truth in Love.” It’s a whole lot easier to read this or memorize these words then it is to live it. I am convinced most people speak what is right to them. It may not be the whole truth, but…

Pushing buttons, stirring the pot, poking the bear, etc. are all terms used to get someone worked up to the point where a reaction takes place. Usually the reaction caused is not a positive one. I was working with a couple and at some point, in the process, received a request from the husband. His…

Client Testimonials

Our original motivation for meeting with DayStar Ministries was our children. We needed understanding how to guide them through some negative circumstances our family was encountering.

Through the application of the principles provided to us, we have gained a life changing opportunity. Our marriage is better, our children are better and we have confidence we are growing into the full potential God has planned for our lives.

Dr. Sirstad didn’t fix our problems, but he equipped and encouraged us with tools to overcome the circumstances we were facing in our family, in ministry and as well as individually. His biblical and practical approach made the goals throughout our time with him achievable.

We highly recommend Dr. Daniel Sirstad of DayStar Ministries. God has given him a gift to counsel people through their obstacles to be victorious in Christ!
