What is Biblical Counseling?
Biblical counseling is intensive discipleship. It is ministering the Word of God to people where they need it the most right now. Everyone is a counselor to someone. Spouses, parents, teachers, pastors, youth workers, church leaders, and health care professionals are regularly giving advice about a variety of subjects. At Union Mission, we believe that in the Bible, God has provided us with real answers for the real problems people encounter in life.
Should I take this course?
If a person came to you depressed, heavy with guilt, near a “breakdown,” anxious, fearful, full of bitterness, with marital problems, or overwhelmed
with grief, would you know what to do according to God’s word? The goal of this training is to equip God’s people to minister God’s word to those in
need. If you want your counsel to be more biblical, insightful and helpful to the people you care about, consider participating in this course.
