BBGS seminars focus on counseling
Developing and operating a healthy counseling ministry is the focus of a series of seminars at Baptist Bible Graduate School this spring.
Students, pastors and counselors can benefit from the sessions, offered in March and April on the Clarks Summit campus. Details on the seminars include:
- A one-day workshop on the PREPARE inventory, a premarital assessment tool. March 29. Mr. Lance Duncan, Assistant Professor and Family Counseling Program Coordinator at Appalachian Bible College, will provide training on this instrument, regarded by many as the premier inventory for evaluating a couple's relationship prior to marriage. Note: Those desiring to register for this training must do so before March 1.
- Developing a Biblical Counseling Ministry in a Local Church. April 11-12. Pastor Mark Dutton, who served on the pastoral staff of Faith Baptist Church, Lafayette, IN, will lead this seminar. He participated in the development of the very active counseling ministry in that church and trains pastors, counselors, and lay people from around the country in their unique counseling model. The seminar will discuss the development of a healthy counseling ministry.
The cost of each seminar is $99 (spouses may attend the Dutton seminar at no charge). To register, please call Regina Koenke at the BBGS office. She may be reached at 570.585.9349 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 48-credit-hour Counseling Ministries program at BBGS prepares students for a professional counseling career, to apply for certification as a National Certified Counselor, and to apply for licensure to minister as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
