Counselor Testimonies



This was my second year working at TLC and I had the privilege of being a lead counselor! I started out a little skeptical as to whether or not I would like this role since I wouldn’t have “my own” guys. However, after seeing God work through me and in the lives of so many counselors and students, I came to appreciate and love the role God had placed me in! I was able to see students’ and counselors’ hearts changed, along with my own, as we fell deeper in love with Jesus Christ and sought after God’s will for our lives! I was able to encourage others and be encouraged through worship, conversations, and prayer! God definitely moved in miraculous ways to draw His people closer to Him and I was blown away by the power of God!John Bartling, TLC Counselor.

I am so thankful for the ministry of TLC and the opportunities I have had to be a part of it. There has not been a time of greater spiritual and personal growth in my life than my time at BBC. TLC has been one of the experiences that I believe has shaped me and stretched me and grown me the most just as a person. I am thankful for the TLC staff for pouring into us college students, better enabling and equipping us to pour into the middle and high school students-- that has been such an incredible challenge and blessing.


As I serve in Honduras in a totally new setting, it is neat to have those moments where I realize that counseling at TLC has equipped and prepared me to do this now. It helped form me into the person I am today who, believe me, is far different than the person I was a few years ago. I recently found myself sitting and talking with two girls for almost two hours. I hadn't met them until just then. The confidence I had to go sit and talk with them, the conversational skills, the fact that I was comfortable speaking with them, and the way I was able to keep the conversation going and get to know so much about them so quickly, all of this I attribute to God's work in me through counseling at TLC. And it is so cool to see that. The skills and mindset I have gained through serving in the ministry of TLC are invaluable. I praise God and thank both Him and TLC for the influence in my life!!!
