Some of you may have wondered, "What happened to Jerry and Denise Basel and The Father's Heart Intensive Counseling Ministry?"  We would like to take a few minutes and respond to that question and let you in on the latest update to our "story." 

Please read on . . . 

Recent Changes to Our Story

As some of you may know, we have not counseled since July of 2021 and for some time we had been sensing a change in the direction of our lives for the future.  After 25 years of counseling and co-directing The Father's Heart Ministry, we felt the Lord leading us to lay down this ministry, sell our home and move to another location.  We sold our home at the end of November, 2022 and moved on December 3, 2022 to Greer, SC (Greenville area).  Though not a simple decision, we completed the process of officially dissolving the ministry at the end of 2022.  Naturally, we have had mixed emotions regarding the dissolution of the ministry.  Though we believe that the Father was leading us to do this and there is tremendous gratitude over what He has accomplished through us with so many people over the years, there is sadness that this chapter is coming to an end.  Though we have had to leave friends and familiar surroundings, we are very fortunate that Denise’s younger sister, Jennifer, and her husband, Mike, live about 30 minutes from our new location.


Though we no longer will be counseling, our hearts continueWe will continue to make our books available through our website,, as these continue to be used by Him to bring greater healing to many.

For those who have received from us in some way over the years—whether through our counseling, our writings, worshipping together or in some other way—thank you for trusting us with your hearts.  We are humbled by what the Father has done over all of these years and we know He isn’t done yet!  We will see how He leads.  


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
