The Biblical Counseling Coalition’s mission is to multiply the ministry of the biblical counseling movement. One of the ways we seek to do so is by being a “megaphone” for biblical counseling organizations. Today we want to use our megaphone to make you aware of two national biblical counseling conferences in 2015.
CCEF: Side by Side: Walking with Others in Wisdom and Love
The Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation’s (CCEF) 2015 National Conference is entitled: Side by Side: Walking with Others in Wisdom and Love. It will be held in Virginia Beach, Virginia, from October 16-18, 2015. Here’s the CCEF introduction to the conference theme:
“A vibrant church community is dependent on us being both needy and needed. So we want to grow in how we ask for help and how we give help. This conference is designed to guide us in those skills, with a focus on how these work in everyday friendships. Even in our professional culture, God is pleased to use needy people and ordinary conversations to do most of the heavy lifting in his kingdom. It’s the perfect system. If God used only experts and people of renown, some could boast in their own wisdom, but God’s way of doing things is not the same as our own. This conference is for ordinary people who need help and want to grow in giving help, and, as we grow, we hope to contribute to the ongoing transformation in our local churches.”

ACBC: Homosexuality: Compassion, Care, and Counsel for Struggling People
The Association of Certified Biblical Counselors’ (ACBC) 2015 National Conference theme is Homosexuality: Compassion, Care, and Counsel for Struggling People. It will be held in Louisville, Kentucky, from October 5-7, 2015. Here’s the ACBC’s introduction to the conference theme:
“The Christian community cannot only be known as the people who understand that homosexuality is wrong. It is a matter of urgent concern that we also be known as the people who move towards people struggling with homosexuality with the love, grace, power, and hope of Jesus Christ and walk with them through the door to real and lasting change.”
