(A ministry of Christ Fellowship)
When: Six weekends over one year…2019 (see below)
Goal: To equip believers to do the work of personal ministry…to present everyone mature in Christ (Col. 1:28). To meet all requirements for ACBC certification except supervised counseling. (Note: a person doesn’t have to pursue certification.)

- The trainings will be in an intensive format of six weekends over a year. Starting in January and ending in December of 2019 (see below) on Friday nights from 6pm-9pm and Saturdays from 9am-5pm. Lunch on Saturdays is included in training cost.
- One missed weekend will be allowed but the training material has to be covered and the assignments must be completed. (Note: The training will be recorded.)
- Participants will be placed in cohorts (small groups), preferably from their churches. They will work in these cohorts to discuss their assigned readings, do counseling observations, collaborate together to complete ACBC exam questions, and counsel one another between modules.
- Once training is complete one can turn all their documents (showing training, readings, observations, and ACBC completed exams) to ACBC to be approved to begin supervised counseling with an ACBC Fellow.
- The last required step for ACBC certification is 50 supervised counseling hours (supervised remotely by an ACBC fellow).

Marriage Retreat - July 13, 2019

$100.00 Registration fee per couple (includes your food).
This will be a small and intimate gathering that will take place at the Madden home. We will limit the group size to 18-20 couples (children will not be included at this retreat). During our time together we will consider the true heartstrings of happiness in marriage as well as the little foxes that make marriage hard. Further, we will speak about how we might be a blessing to our children in helping them to choose and how they should look to the Bible to guide them as they enter into the process of getting married.
