Get In Touch
We are passionate about helping churches become a church of biblical counselors rather than just a church with a biblical counseling ministry. If you desire to bring soul care back to your local church, we’d love to meet you.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my church is ready for the BCM process?
If you have been thinking for a few years about how to create a culture of biblical counseling and equip your people to be skilled in providing God-glorifying, biblical care, but for whatever reason have not been able to move forward, it would be good for us to talk. The key questions to inform if you are ready are: Are you ready to make this commitment? And do you desire help?
Do you work with churches in all locations?
We currently serve a variety of churches in Central Illinois, and are set-up and equipped to serve churches nationally as well. That partnership is unique to the location of the church, but the short answer is yes!
Where Do i start if I Want to Learn About Becoming a Counselor?
Visiting www.biblicalcounseling.com, which is the site for the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC), would be a great place to learn about biblical counseling and the phases involved with becoming a certified counselor.
How Do You Define Biblical Counseling?
Our vision and definition for biblical counseling aligns with the Biblical Counseling Coalition Confessional Statement, which states: “The goal of biblical counseling is spiritual, relational, and personal maturity as evidenced in desires, thoughts, motives, actions, and emotions that increasingly reflect Jesus (Ephesians 4:17-5:2).”
