Equipping Series - Teaching Resources for Equipping Counselors

BCC Staff Note: You’re reading Part Five of a seven-part Grace & Truth blog mini-series on Equipping Counselors for Your Church. In this series, you’ll read:

You Don’t Have to Reinvent the Wheel!

Many times when people write about equipping, they provide excellent ideas. But often I hear people say:

“I love those ideas, but do you have any resources so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel? And, any chance those resources are free!?

In response to questions like that from many educators, equippers, pastors, and biblical counselors, I’ve created the following free resources for Equipping Counselors for Your Church.

  • A One-Day, 8-Hour Edition: This would be ideal for:

*The local church leader who wants to empower his team to launch a biblical counseling ministry in the church. This could be a one-day interactive seminar or four evening sessions of two hours each in a local church model.

*The college, seminary, or graduate school professor who wants to use Equipping Counselors for Your Church as one part of a class on equipping, but not as the full focus of the course. This could be one day/one section of a semester-long course.

  • A One-Week/One-Semester, 32-to-40-Hour Edition: This would be ideal for:

*The college, seminary, or graduate school professor who wants to use Equipping Counselors for Your Church as the primary focus of the course. You have everything you need to use Equipping Counselors for Your Church in the classroom setting.
