Pre-Conference | Biblical Counseling & Legal Issues

One of the most difficult tasks the church will face in our culture is navigating legal issues related to counseling. ACBC is committed to helping equip the church to understand current legal issues and to provide resources to navigate these often confusing situations. Our 2020 Pre-Conference is dedicated to equip the people of the church to understand the legal ramifications of biblical counseling and how you can confidently counsel the whole Scripture of God.
