Many folks from Sovereign Grace will be attending a training event in Sioux Falls this Spring. The 2018 ACBC Discipleship Conference is facilitated by the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. The conference takes place over the course of three weekend events, all Friday-Saturday on March 23-24, April 27-28, and May 18-19. The conference is hosted by Faith Baptist Fellowship in Sioux Falls.
We believe that every single person is a counselor. Conscious of it or not, we provide counsel to others every day in our interactions at work, online, at home, at church and as we go about our lives. We're always talking to people about problems and struggles. The question for us as Christians is: Is the counsel and advice we provide biblical? In fact, the call to counsel is really a call to discipleship. ACBC seeks to help normal Christians do what Christ commissioned, in teaching others all observe that he commanded (Matt. 28:20) as well as encouraging and exhorting one another everyday (Heb. 10:25; 3:13).
We're grateful that ACBC has returned to Sioux Falls in 2018 as is re-offering their Fundamentals Track for those new to biblical counseling, as well as a new Advanced Track this year for those who attended last year.
What is biblical counseling? ACBC provides the following answer on their website: "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."
