See links at the bottom for the Biblical Counselor Training Application and the Year 1 Course Schedule. If you know that you are definitely taking the course, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know whether you will be choosing Option 1 or Option 2 (see details below) so I can plan accordingly. Option 1 will be limited to 12-15 students. There will be 16 class meetings per year with a two month break in between years. The options for this training course are:
This track is for someone who is interested in serving First Church (or your church) as a general lay biblical counselor and must fill out and submit the biblical counselor training application (this track is a requirement for becoming a certified counselor for First Church).
If you want to reserve your spot for Option 1, please fill out and turn in the application as soon as possible. Option 1 will be limited to 12-15 people selected from all applications received by Oct. 6th, 2020.
This track is for someone who is interested in biblical counseling (perhaps a small group leader, Sunday school teacher, elder, deacon, deaconess, discipler, or anyone that desires to help others) but does not have the time to fulfill the Option 1 requirements.
Start your reading as soon as possible. Books can be purchased at amazon.com, christianbook.com, wtsbooks.com and gracebooks.com.
For those taking Option 1, I will assume that you will have read the material listed on the assignment schedule prior to our first class meeting on 11/3/2020. There will be a reading statement due on your first class meeting stating what percent of the 11/3/2020 reading assignment you've completed. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com. I am looking forward to our time together as we equip ourselves to make disciples, teaching them to observe all that Christ has commanded (Matt. 28:19-20).
