Training the Church to Counsel and Disciple using Scripture
The Biblical Counseling and Discipleship Association of Southern California was formed in the summer of 2011 for the sole purpose to provide regional churches and ministries with quality training on how to effectively counsel and disciple using Scripture.
Our prayer is that the low-cost on our training will encourage you to invite all of your church/ministry leadership: pastors, elders, deacons, small group leaders (in every ministry) and counselors to attend.
We especially want to encourage that couples take the training together, so they can first see the Lord strengthen their own marriages based upon biblical principles and then use what they have learned to build up marriages within their sphere of ministry.
Should the Lord allow, our goal is to add a new set of advanced classes of training each fall for several years to come, so that:
- Future first-time students can receive the 30 Hours of ACBC Certified Instruction each year (assisting church leaders with their goal to multiply leaders)
- Attendees can return to learn new biblical principles that will make their counseling and discipleship more fruitful. The Advanced Classes feature some men-only and women-only topics. These Advanced Classes include continuing education on foundational and cutting edge topics, taught by experienced biblical counselors. Students will complete individual and group projects to maximize the benefit to their biblical counseling ministries.
