Counseling & Discipleship Training

Wouldn’t you love to know how to help a real person with a real problem using your Bible?

If so, then this conference is for you, because our desire is to see believers, young and old, living with a quiet, humble confidence that God could actually use us to help someone else. Isn’t that what God has us here on this earth for – to be salt and light? We’re convinced that God could use this conference to help you get saltier and brighter and to start living on purpose, for the glory of God. 

Do you know how to help someone from God’s Word?

“The material in this conference has changed my life and keeps on changing my life year after year because it’s rooted in God’s timeless Word. We are living in perilous times with the family and society around us breaking down at an alarming rate, which creates an even greater opportunity to share the Gospel, apply biblical truths, and lift up our Savior.”

– Brad Bigney, Lead Pastor at Grace Fellowship Church

Is this training only for counselors?

No way! This training is for anyone who wants to learn how to help people using their Bible.

If you’re a Small Group Leader in your church, we believe this training will help you become ready to assist when people in your group are hurting as it gives you the foundations of using Scripture to address heart issues, which we all have.

But if you’re interested in learning how to counsel biblically or work through the ACBC Counseling certification process, this training is especially for you.

What will this equip me to do?

You likely know someone who has a troubled marriage, has kids who are struggling with disobedience, or are friends with someone who has experienced a tragic loss. We all know these people, but so often we do not know what to say when we are faced with the struggles of these people we love so much.

We offer counseling and discipleship training because we want the church of Jesus Christ to grow in wisdom and skill about how to say helpful things to people going through intense difficulty.

At CDT, you will learn

  • How to help someone who feels trapped by a sin they cannot overcome
  • What to say to someone who is experiencing a heartbreaking loss
  • How to offer care to your friends who are experiencing trouble in their family

Is parking free?

Yep! But gas money is on your own. 🙂

Is childcare provided?

Childcare is NOT provided for this training.

Does this fulfill the requirements for ACBC certification?

Yes, the Foundations Track (Sep 14-15, Oct 12-13, Nov 9-10) fulfills the initial instruction required for the ACBC certification process.

I do not attend Grace Fellowship Church, can I still come?

Absolutely! Many people attend this conference from many different churches around the country. We’d love to have you join us!
