Our goal is to glorify God by equipping lay men and women and church and pastoral staff to better serve those hurting and in need in the church body.
It is a reality that many in our families, churches, work places and communities regularly experience trials and hardships in life. As Christ-followers we are all called to help by bearing one another’s burdens, by admonishing the unruly, encouraging the fainthearted, and helping the weak, while being patient with all (Galatians 6:2; 1 Thess. 5:14). However, it is also a reality that many in the church believe they are not equipped to carry out these God given responsibilities.
Therefore, the Hope Center annually offers a Fundamentals Class in Biblical counseling and discipleship. This course is taught by CFC’s Biblical Counselors and Pastoral staff. Completion of the course will satisfy Basic Training Course requirement of the Association of Certification Biblical Counselors’ (ACBC) certification process.
