Finding Christ Relevant to Every Area of Life

DDCommunity Biblical Church Counselor Training

DDCommunity: Biblical Church Counselor training

Biblical Church Counselor Training

Desperately Dependent Community and DDCommunity Church have joined to offer Biblical Church Counselor training through DDCommunity Institute. The goal of this training is to develop people who counsel within the church, under the authority of the church, solely from a Christ-centered, faith-based perspective. This training focuses on developing leaders who have

  • a Christ-centered perspective of life’s problems.
  • a Christ-centered understanding of the solution to life’s problems.
  • a Christ-centered discernment of applying biblical truth to becoming complete in Christ.

The DDCommunity Biblical Church Counselor training offers Christ-centered solutions to the human condition. Our counseling process is founded upon the belief that Jesus Christ is the center of wellness and that the Bible is our authority for practice. The training consistently asserts that people may only achieve wellness as they find Christ relevant to their lives. We do not profess or adhere to any secular perspective nor seek to advise anyone in the ways of these secular practices.

Why train others?

DDCommunity’s Biblical Church Counselor training has been inspired by Paul’s letter to Timothy.

You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.

2 Timothy 2:2 NLT
