Messenger Counselors are Licensed, qualified and specialized in many areas.  The
premise to our counseling is that we recognize each and every individual are wonderfully
and uniquely made of God.  As stated in the Scriptures:

Psa 139:13  For thou didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my mother's
Psa 139:14  I will give thanks unto thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well.
Psa 139:15  My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, And
curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Psa 139:16  Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all
written, Even the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was none of them.

Are you a Christian? (see Romans 10:9). Are you born again? (see John 3:3-8). Do you
believe that you were uniquely created? (see Psalm 139:13-16). Do you know your
ministry calling? (see Ephesians 4:1 and Revelation 2:19).

I know that it is essential to our peace, joy, and wholeness to find out how our personal
soul (inner man) functions according to God's perfect will for our lives, before we were
born-predestined. When we recognize this, we stop worrying about who 'others want us to
be according to who they think they are.
Each one of  us were created to communicate differently to   others. We were also created
according to our temperament to communicate in a unique manner privately and publicly.

Only God knew with His infinite wisdom know what temperament was needed for our soul
(mind, will, emotions) to function within certain gifts, to do what we are called to do, in
fulfilling our destiny.  So that we and others could prosper and be in good health. That as
leaders we would be effective, because we understand \ how we have been uniquely
created, and teach others how to effectively lead others, to the glory of God!

Therefore, our initial evaluation is to administer an analysis profiles which returns the
following information: the strengths, weaknesses, needs and  traits of that individual.  
Many times as counselors we are unable to counsel throughly to the point of bringing life
changes and lasting peace.

After one Is administered the Firo-B, approximately an eight-minute test that is used to
identify the "Temperament" (inborn). They receive an official 6-8 page report called The
NCCA - Arno Profile System (A.P.S.), which outlines the perfections .(strengths).
imperfections (weaknesses) and needs of that individual. There are five temperaments:
1•Melancholy; 2•Choleric; 3• Sanguine; 4-Supine; and 5-Phlegmatic. It is very rate that an
individual Is of a pure temperament (such as, Melancholy in Inclusion. Melancholy In
Control, and Melancholy in Affection), but many people are of a couple or a few blends
(such as Melancholy Choleric (Inclusion), Supine Phlegmatic (Control). Sanguine
compulsive (Affection), that is how God created each one of us to function, when our spirit
and soul is harmonizing••we have peace that surpasses all understanding.

There are three areas within our soul that determine how we communicate
with others: Inclusion- the mind or Intellect {socially or surface
relationships), Control the will or will power (our decision-making);
Affection• The emotions (deeper or personal relationships). The
temperament Is a determining factor In the spiritual development of man
(when our needs are being met in a godly way).

For those parents that are struggling with today's youth, there is a profile for that
particular age group (7-11, 12-17 and adults) that provide a special section of the report
to assist the parent on how to recognize the strength, weaknesses and needs that the
child are trying to meet that might not be in a positive way. Especially the children that are
labelled ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), because they are Sanguine, which are people
oriented, trying to get attention and not concerned with completing task, irresponsible,
exaggerate and have new friends everyday that they love to help by giving others gifts,
that might just belong to you.  Our counseling model help to bring balance and assist them
in making the right choice, to meet that real need.

Reactions to unmet temperament needs (e.g., anxiety from taking too much responsibility
for others; anger over unmet affection needs; anxiety from lack of a peaceful environment),

The stress that results from these conflicts along with the stresses of daily living in a fallen
world produce a multitude of problems and pain. Temperament therapy is based on
understanding the inner man and applying that knowledge to bring balance in all three
areas of the temperament: Inclusion, Control, and Affection. It is possible to bring these
three areas into balance and in turn, lay the foundation to balance the body, soul, and
