Biblical Discipleship Training
Overseen by Pastor Kent Kloter
Location: Bethany Community Church - 27577 Dutch Lane, Washington IL

If you have ever wondered how to respond to hard circumstances in your life, whether it’s with your own emotions, a situation involving your children, your spouse, siblings, or your peers, this course is for you. 

Our training will be divided into 3 weekends during the Fall. The second weekends of September – November we will be holding our classes on Friday evening followed by all day Saturday.  The dates are as follows:

September 7th– 8th
October 12th– 13th
November 9th– 10th

Friday Night 5:00p-9:30p
Saturday 9a-5p 

This course is not just for those interested in formal biblical counseling but to help you in understanding how to think and respond in ways that please God and work for the good of other people in your everyday situations.  Attendance at all sessions is recommended for formal counseling ministry training and attendance is required for Phase 1 of ACBC certification.
