Upcoming Training

The 6th Annual Discipleship and Biblical Counseling Conference​
March 5th - 7th 2021


We are all aware of the effects of abuse and related trauma on individuals and families both within the church and beyond. Whether you know someone, care for someone, or are that someone, God’s word has answers to guide us. Join us as we learn more about this sensitive topic – what the Bible has to say, how the Lord responds, and how the church is to respond.
