Next week we kick off the second half of our biblical counseling training course. Block 3 covers the important subject of marriage. Following that, beginning in mid-March, block 4 will cover the subject of parenting and wrap up our four-block training course.
Here is what the schedule for block 3 looks like:
God’s Design for Marriage
Roles of the Husband and Wife
Communication and Finances
Putting It All Together
In addition to the teaching, as time allows we plan to show videos that will provide insight into what real counseling sessions look like.
Our hope and prayer is that God would use this training to not only equip His people to counsel others, but also that all those in attendance would be encouraged and strengthened in their own walk with Christ.

While God is faithful to change hearts and minds in the lives of His children, we also understand that change is a process, and often times far from simplistic or quick. Habits of life and thinking tend to change over time as the Holy Spirit works in hearts. This process of change is called “progressive sanctification.” It can be helpful and sometimes necessary to seek help from other Christians who can faithfully lead and walk with us, providing biblical encouragement and instruction along the way for the implementation of God-honoring, Christ-centered change. If you are struggling with life’s challenges, we would encourage you to seek help from your pastor, a godly friend, or a biblical counselor who is committed to seeking answers from God’s Word. To find a biblical counselor you can contact us or visit biblicalcounseling.com to find a counselor in your area.
