The Eldred McClean Counseling Center has expanded services to include TELE and Video Counseling.



Since the church was founded in 1989, perhaps one of the best-kept secrets at North Dallas Community Bible Fellowship (NDCBF) was the counseling ministry. Members of the congregation have primarily received counseling services through the church’s Care and Comfort arm. Pastor Eldred McClean, who is also co-founder of NDCBF, served as the lead pastoral counselor along with Tera McFarland, a licensed professional counselor (LPC) for many years. 

After counseling hurting families and individuals who were struggling with grief and loss, seeking help with their marriages, trying to recover from separation and divorce or teens who had become difficult to manage, pastor McClean saw the need for counseling services to expand within the church.  Passionate about helping the hurting, he envisioned a counseling center comprised of several biblically trained pastoral and licensed professional counselors. With a team of like-minded therapists, his vision was crafted into a comprehensive strategic plan.  And, after much prayer and perseverance, the Eldred McClean Counseling Center, Inc. (EMCC, Inc.) was established in 2018.   

EMCC, Inc. is a Christian counseling center with a safe environment for hurting people to heal. We exist to help people manage the difficulties of everyday life.  At EMCC, Inc. our licensed and pastoral counselors help individuals, couples and families use counseling interventions rooted in biblical principles.

The marriage covenant is the most intimate relationship one can have with another person. Whether a newlywed or a seasoned couple, every marriage will face conflict from time to time.  Our trained counselors work with couples to overcome everyday challenges and develop greater intimacy. Because couples often lack the practical skills needed to maintain oneness, we focus on development, coaching husbands and wives to implement what they learn outside of the session. If you feel that your marriage relationship could benefit from some fine-tuning, help through a conflict or practical enrichment, we can help you develop a plan that meets your distinctive needs. 

Problems within the family structure are all too common. From marriages that are struggling, to teens becoming difficult to relate to and frustration with communication impediments, family life can be challenging.

We are here for you. At the Eldred McClean Counseling Center, Inc. we value the family as a God-given institution. We are committed to helping families through the tough times in life and experience restoration and healing.
