About BAPC

The term ‘biblical consulting’ is interchangeable with ‘biblical counseling and discipleship.’ However, in order to differentiate Be A Part of Change from the traditional “psychotherapist and client” mentality, we are referring to our services as “consulting”. We view each opportunity as a unique honor to walk along side individuals towards greater wholeness, restoration and wholehearted living. This is a very interactive process. The facilitator is not in a sterile white coat while you, the patient, are lying on a couch listening to the facilitator repeat back to you what you just said. While there is a time and place for such business, this is not the time nor place. Be A Part of Change is here to ‘sit on the couch with you’ and empower you to walk a whole and victorious life.

Everyone undergoes pain and wounding. This is common to all men, women and children. The results of such wounding and terribly difficult times can include broken relationships, a damaged view of ones self, confusion and despair. We often do not know how to respond to this wounding, and in the end, we begin to live lesser lives than what Christ intended for His people. In this cyclical process we lose sight of our reason for existing and we adopt ideas, ways of communicating and lifestyles that do not represent Christ or build healthy, thriving relationships. As people invest in their emotional, spiritual and relational health and maturity through biblical consulting, they are becoming a part of change. Not only for themselves but for their families, their children, their neighbors and co-workers, and thus, the world. Be A Part of Change is committed to walking the redemption process and fighting with you for more.

Consulting

Biblical Consulting is offered through Be A Part of Change in order to encourage freedom and change through consultation, interactive listening, exposing roots of shame, healing through prayer and a restored paradigm through which to understand life. We believe that through biblical consulting, hearts are able to heal, grow and learn how to love well and wholly.

We understand that many people coming for consulting have issues from their past and need understanding, insight, healing, wisdom, restoration, reconciliation, conflict resolution skills and communication skills, as well as a host of other needs. We believe the Word of God speaks to every area of life (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We believe that every consulting issue at its core is primarily a spiritual issue. We do not negate the impact that society, culture, family, work, medication etc. has on the individual; therefore, we believe it is important to address every aspect of life in consulting. Biblical consulting points people to God’s Word for every aspect of life. This does not negate the fact that there are certain situations where a medical professional should be sought out in conjunction with biblical consulting and we will encourage that when necessary.

Pain begets pain and blinds individuals from dreaming about how their story is a vital part of God’s greater story. When we become disconnected from understanding the impact of our life, we become disenfranchised, and further separated from the community God intends for us. If that pain is never addressed and dealt with, the possibility of experiencing the greatness of love, grace, compassion and true wholehearted living becomes greatly limited. It is our goal to help people see how their lives are full of meaning and purpose when understood through the lens of Scripture. When people begin to see their story in light of God’s story, life gets a whole lot better, quickly. (1 Corinthians 10:31, 2 Corinthians 5:9).

Consulting is an extensive, personal journey to help one understand their life in light of Christ. Through the biblical consulting process, one will learn how to lay a hold of the biblical principles found in Scripture that bring freedom and wholeness to the individual’s life.

Co-Founder

Chelsey Wang, Founder of Be A Part of Change earned her Masters in Biblical Counseling from The Masters College in Santa Clarita, and has been serving the Central Coast for over five years. Her counseling foundation developed while serving community needs at Reality Church in Carpinteria. During her tenure at Reality, she served as the church’s full time Women’s Counselor and counseled many individuals from all walks of life. She became familiar with the ways people cope with fear, pain, shame and loneliness, and the accumulation of her experiences helped to craft her passion for facilitating growth in the areas of emotional maturity and relational wholeness. This, therefore is the backbone of Be Apart of Change.

It is impossible to have authentic, life giving relationships without vulnerability and humility. Chelsey creates an environment where vulnerability and humility are the norm and where people are not afraid to be honest and face their fears, anger and pain. She is motivated to see people walk in greater freedom and redemption and is thrilled to journey with people in order for them to get there.
