Biblical Counseling & Discipleship

The purpose of the Biblical Counseling & Discipleship Track is to prepare men and women to strengthen and encourage their brothers and sisters in Christ through focused discipleship. There are two primary elements: ACBC classes taught through The Gospel Institute courses and mentoring and observing.

This 36-week course gives a practical understanding of how to participate in the discipleship arena in a meaningful way that creates a plan for life change while demostrating love, compassion, wisdom, and biblical truth. The evenings will be split into two identical session offering the opportunity for lecture, observation, case studies, and more.
