Equip Yourself to Counsel Biblically
EQUIPPED TO COUNSEL
ABC Level 1 Certification
Helping others apply gospel truths in their darkest times.
Are you a believer with a passion for helping others? You know that God’s Word gives life, but may be unsure how to effectively share its hope with those who are struggling. ETC Level 1 is designed to equip followers of Christ with practical tools and training to provide specific, Gospel-centered counsel to family, friends, and neighbors.
This is for anyone sitting in church who cares about the person sitting next to them.
By way of either in-person or virtual classes, as well as seminars and lectures, ETC Level 1 will teach you how to apply the Bible to everyday life. Learn what Scripture says about common issues like addiction, anxiety, depression, anger, and sexual sin. Hone the art of active listening, and how to ask the right questions to spark deeper conversations and greater understanding.
Whether you’re a pastor, leader, teacher, or parent, you can be salt and light to those around you. Are you ready to bring the power of God’s Word to those He’s put in your life?
