Biblical counseling resources

Counseling Solutions (worldwide non-profit organization helping people who are in situational difficulties, accomplished by using Christian principles to train leaders to competently counsel as well as by providing practical and compassionate counseling to individuals in need; core values). Sample articles are:

Concerned or Responsible: How to think about those you serve: Do you generally feel more concerned or responsible for those you serve? There is a “sphere of responsibility” and a “sphere of concern” and the two are very different. Learn the differences and immediately apply the teaching from The Counseling Solutions Group to those you are discipling.

Does every Timothy need a Paul? This short video seminar will cover two common contexts that we see today in our local churches. The first one is more traditional, over the past 30 years, while the second one has not been completely embraced by our local churches. This second model is tied more into the full-body ministry that we see in the New Testament.

Body to Body Ministry: How do we care for an individual? What is the best context to care for an individual? Who is responsible for the care of an individual? These questions and more are answered in this short seminar from The Counseling Solutions Group, Inc.
