Why is Training Important?

You don’t get cardiac surgery from someone with a mere interest in hearts; you don’t want your car repaired by a simple car enthusiast; and it takes more than an affinity for toilets to fix one. In each of these areas you reach out for help to someone who actually knows what they are doing. The same is true for counseling. There are all kinds of people who are interested in counseling, and who are persuaded by the principles of biblical counseling. But interest and conviction alone do not make a faithful biblical counselor. Faithfulness requires equipping.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Biblical Counseling?

Biblical Counseling is discipleship. It is the personal ministry of the word through conversation. Every Christian is called to speak the truth in love to his neighbor and help them grow in grace. Believers should desire to apply the Bible to every area of life. The goal of Biblical Counseling is to present everyone mature in Christ by teaching with all wisdom.

Who is this conference for?

CDTs are designed to help equip disciples of Christ to grow in their faith and help others do the same. The conference will cover a wide range of issues dealing with various problems in the Christian life. Whether you are a pastor, counselor or church member, this conference is for you.
