You can even use this mini-seminar as credit toward our counselor certification program through the online course: CHANGE THAT STICKS (click to view). We will equip you to counsel and even help you organize a counseling ministry in your community and church through the Biblical Counseling Network. By attending you will be able to live and minister the Scriptures more practically and persuasively to those in your life, church and community.
Session 1 - OVERCOME DEPRESSION, ANGER, HURT & FEAR
Session 2 - CONTROLLING ANXIETY & WORRY
Feelings are gifts from a good God. Even feelings of SAD, MAD, BAD or “FRAD” (afraid) can be used for good - if we do not follow them into the downward spiral.
Neither follow or ignore your feelings, but rather transform them by renewing your mind and rebuilding your responses to life by His Word and Spirit.
Use your feelings to motivate you to seek a greater perspective of hope in God and a greater application of His Word in life.
Register to attend the sessions live at Riverbend Community Church or simulcast
Includes outlines and assignments ready-to-use for counseling ministry or personal change.
We are coming in hopes that a work of God similar to that which has occurred in the Charleston area will catch fire and result in the transformation of hundreds of individuals and families in Columbia to the glory of Christ's Word.
