Gordon Bals

Counselor / Founder

Gordon founded Daymark Pastoral Counseling in 1997.  He counsels in a variety of areas but especially focuses on issues related to marriage and family, grief, loss and trauma or religious and spiritual issues (trouble integrating faith from day to day).  Gordon has a unique way of helping the Scriptures come alive in everyday situations and pointing others through difficulty or confusion toward reconciliation with God.  He is an adjunct faculty member at Beeson Divinity School and author of Common Ground: Discovering God’s Redemption in Your Marriage.  Prior to founding Daymark Pastoral Counseling, Gordon worked as an adolescent and family counselor and as an Assistant Pastor at a local church. Gordon has been married since 1990 and has three daughters.
