Biblical Counselor TrainingOur next 2-year Biblical Counselor Training starts on November 5, 2024.
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 email@example.com 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 15 class meetings in Year 1 and 16 class meetings in year 2 with a two month break in between years. The options for this training course are:
Option 1 (Lay Counselor)This track is for someone who is interested in serving First Church (or your church) as a lay biblical counselor and must fill out and submit the biblical counselor training application (this track is a requirement for becoming an ACBC certified counselor and for being a lay counselor at First Church).
If you want to reserve your spot for Option 1, please fill out and turn in your application as soon as possible. Option 1 will be limited to 12-15 students selected from all applications received by October 25, 2024.
Option 2 (Discipleship)This track is for someone who is interested in biblical counseling (for personal growth in holiness; as an elder, deacon, discipler, life group leader, or Sunday school teacher; or anyone that desires to help others) but does not have the time to fulfill the Option 1 requirements.
Note to those taking the courseStart your reading as soon as possible. Books can be purchased at amazon.com, biblicalcounselingbooks.com, christianbook.com, gracebooks.com and wtsbooks.com.
For those taking Option 1, I will assume that you will have completed the reading assignment listed on the course schedule for class 1 prior to our first class meeting on November 5, 2024. A reading statement will be due at the beginning of class 1 stating your name and what percentage of the first class reading assignment you've completed.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to our time together as we equip ourselves to make disciples, teaching them to observe all that Christ has commanded (Matthew 28:19-20).
