Building a Biblical Counseling Ministry

ACBC is committed to the truth that every Christian is a counselor and we are dedicated to the mission of equipping every Christian to counsel God’s Word faithfully.

United with this mission is the desire to see local churches embrace biblical counseling as an internal part of church life. In an effort to see this desire become reality, we have joined with many of our experienced certified members and certified training center directors, to make the  resources on this page available to you. On this page you will find a variety of resources, from the foundational to the practical, that are aimed at building a counseling ministry in your local church.

We plan to add to this page regularly, so please be sure to check back in with us from time to time.



If you have any questions about these resources or if you would like help thinking through what it might look like to establish a counseling ministry at your church,  please contact the Director of Training Center Certification, Sam Stephens, at
