“I view the time spent over three weekends in the ACBC Fundamentals Training as a great personal investment in my walk with Christ. It has helped me to be more fluent in God’s Word as I seek to grow and be renewed by His truth… the ACBC CDT is useful for all Christians in their normal calling to disciple, encourage and love the household of God.” – Gary H. | CDT Attendee

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.
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.
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.
For nearly 40 years, the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC) has been certifying biblical counselors to ensure doctrinal integrity and to promote excellence in biblical counseling. We offer a comprehensive biblical counseling certification program that is rigorous, but attainable by even the busiest pastor. The biblical counseling certification phases include Learning, Exams, and Supervision.
