2012 Biblical Counseling Coalition Leadership

Would you be willing to pray for the Biblical Counseling Coalition leadership this Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday? Of the 46 members of the Board of Directors and Council Board, 39 were able to clear their schedules for our second annual leadership retreat.

During our three days together:

  • We will share numerous times of worship and fellowship
  • We will meet in several times in small groups for mutual encouragement and iron sharpening
  • We will interact in a large group format for three segments of two hours each—discussing how we can grow in our ability to relate God’s Word to people living in a broken world
  • We will share meals together—connecting as members of Christ’s family
  • We will envision together—discussing how we can work together to advance the cause of promoting personal change centered on the Person of Christ through the personal ministry of the Word
  • We will be edified by teaching/equipping from Dr. David Powlison and Dr. Charles Ware

A major part of the BCC’s mission/vision is to promote collaborative relationships. What better way to do that than to get away together at a retreat center (the WinShape Retreat Center) in the context of iron-sharpening-iron connection.

We’d appreciate your prayers for all those attending. Several have asked to be able to pray for attendees by name.
