Biblical Counseling Training (ACBC)
(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.)
Who: pastors, missionaries, deacons, small group leaders, Sunday School teachers, college ministers, ministry leaders, husband/fathers, wives/mothers…
- 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).
