Bangor Counseling Center

In 1997, Dr. Briggs founded Bangor Counseling Center (as a private practice) in his home in Bangor, Maine at 532 Union Street (see top three photos on right).  Shortly thereafter, Dr. Briggs gave (n/f) Cornerstone, Inc. (CI), another non-profit program founded by Dr. Briggs, permission to use the name "Bangor Counseling Center" (BCC) but CI did not advance the program.  Therefore, late in 1998, Dr. Briggs made BCC a d/b/a of NLM* and changed NLM's constitutional Purpose to more closely align with this new direction. 

NLM/BCC continued to lease Dr. Briggs' 532 Union Street property for several years until growth prohibited its further use.  In October of 2000 Dr. Briggs became BCC's first paid President & CEO.  In 2002 NLM/BCC relocated its corporate offices to a larger facility that Dr. Briggs discovered downtown Bangor.  He placed a deposit on it and solicited a co-buyer (Dr. Oliver) to purchase the property so BCC could lease a much larger facility.

The Move

The new planned location at 202 Exchange Street in Bangor, Maine was approximately 10,000 sq ft. (see bottom three photos on the right) and was in need of serious renovations before the building could be usable.  Therefore, Dr. Briggs spent the next six months, through his company, Briggs Ultd., removing over 100 cubic yards of debris from gutting the first floor.  Briggs Ultd. then began constructing brand new offices on the first floor.  Finally, BCC was ready for the move, where it still remains to this day.  Prior to the end of Dr. Briggs' tenure, BCC continued to expand through out the building eventually utilizing all three floors. 

Dr. Briggs' tenure, he developed BCC into the largest Behavioral Health program in the city and state.  It grew from zero employees in mid-2000 to over 140 employees by the end of 2005 with two additional branch offices (Ellsworth and Waterville).  By the end of 2005 BCC was delivering approximately 70,000 treatment hours per year all combined.

NLM*, which BCC was a d/b/a of, was an affiliate member of World Christian Ministries Association (WCMA-Maine) from 1993 until 2006 and BCC was also an affiliate member of WCMA (Maine) from 1997 to 2006 until Dr. Briggs left the organizations in 2006 due to an illegal and hostile family board takeover.  

Dr. Briggs now focuses most of his attention on World Christian Ministries Association, Aletheia Logos University, and Transmutation Psychology Institute .

During Dr. Briggs' tenure, he solicited and invited Rev. Byron Lyons (a Canadian WCMA ordained minister at the time), to move to the USA, under the auspices of WCMA,  and work at BCC as a counselor.  This was two years after Rev. Lyons had already been invited by Dr. Briggs to become NLM's second Board Chairman, since Dr. Briggs had become a compensated employee of NLM/BCC in October 2000 and thus had to resign in 2001 from being NLM/BCC's Board Chairman.  He also invited Ruth Sawler and Dr. Oliver (a WCMA member at the time) to be on its Board until Dr. Oliver also became a compensated employee of NLM/BCC and was thus removed and replaced by Beth Young.  Dr. Briggs acted as NLM's Treasurer until he appointed Beth Young as NLM/BCC's new Secretary/Treasurer in early 2005.

 * Diane Murray, Dr. Briggs' oldest sister, incorporated NLM in September 1989 as a Soup Kitchen to help the poor and needy in the Belfast, Maine area.  Dr. Briggs was on NLM's first board and continued on its board until he resigned in 2001 because he became BCC/NLM's first compensated President & CEO.  Dr. Briggs was the Chairman of the board from around 1990 until 2001 and acted as a non-paid President & CEO until October 2000.

Acquiring Divine Integrity

is likely that no teaching of Christ and of his disciples is more violated among wealthy nations than the one outlined to the right.  You see, the coming and birth of Jesus Christ embodies and promotes a divine paradigm shift that was to redirect humanity onto a new path; a path of humility and servitude; a path of action that reaches out to sinners, to help the poor, the needy and the sick (Matt. 20:26-28; 9:12).  This new path of humility and servitude is defined as greatness (Luke 9:48); conversely, the pursuit of wealth, power and prestige is not only carnal but a path that will end in emptiness (Luke 1:51-53; 12:15-21).  Notwithstanding, if wealth and power is or has been acquired it is to be used for the benefit of and given to the poor and needy, that is, if perfection is to be acquired (Matt. 19:21).  However, giving must be done with humility, even secretly (Matt. 6:1-4).   But don't worry, because Jesus does observe your giving from an equitable perspective  (Mark 12:41-44) and HE will reward you.  Somehow, the bulk of the Christian community has forgotten this Christly teaching--but together we can change this and get the Church (the body of Christ) back on the narrow path (Matt. 7:12-27).

If you were in the shoes of your less fortunate fellow Christians, what would you want wealthier Christians to do for you?  (Matt. 25:34-46 and Matt. 7:12)   If you can perceive this concept, you will grasp that Christ was teaching (Matt. 7:12-27) a summary of the whole Law and the Prophets--charitable and gracious words are not only meaningless without aligned actions (behavior) but determines your status in eternity.

Therefore, the responsibility of the existing Body of Christ is two-fold.  First, it is to share its spiritual wealth--the Gospel of Hope and scriptural wisdom and knowledge--with hungry unbelievers and believers alike.  Second, it is to share its individual and collective non-spiritual wealth with less fortunate members of the Body of Christ via collections, distributions and sharing.  [Remember, a person's wealth is not solely comprised of money earned or saved, but also includes his/her knowledge, possessions, skills, and so on].  To avoid neglecting the ministry of God's word, the Apostles delegated this social church responsibility to Godly men equipped with the talents and skills to do so. This duty was not assigned to the Preachers, per se, but to gifted and Godly ecclesiastical administrators.  This is where WCMA comes in--Godly ecclesiastical administrators of this modern day responsibility. Join us to help create a global paradigm shift and correct this sin against humanity.

If you desire Divine Christian Integrity that will find favor with and touch the heart of God, then align your passions with the passions of Christ--devoting an equitable amount of your finances and time (or more) to orphans, widows, children, the poor, the needy, the sick and sinners.
