One week from tonight we will begin the last block of our biblical counseling training course. This is a very exciting time for us! Last summer we kicked off our first run through this training course by covering basics of counseling, then in the fall continued by studying common subjects in counseling. After a break for the holidays we started the new year with training regarding marriage, and now we will be wrapping up the last piece of the training course with a focus on parenting.

This final block of training will be the shortest so far, taking place on four Wednesday evenings from 7:00-9:00pm:

March 16
Goal of Parenting

March 23
Parental Instruction

March 30
Parental Discipline

April 6
Secular and Integration Counseling Theories

As we have in the past, we plan to incorporate several videos into the training sessions that give a look at counseling sessions with ACBC-certified counselors.

We have been so encouraged by the feedback we’ve received from the last three blocks of counseling training and look forward to seeing how God uses these coming weeks to continue equipping and uplifting His church.

For those who would like to attend block 4 of training but haven’t signed up yet, you can do that by emailing register@gracebcm.org. All of our training is free, and we would love to have you join us.

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.
