Advanced Course: Going Deeper

The 2022 Going Deeper Course will build upon the foundation developed in the Fundamentals course. The workshops offer practical help in learning how to help others with the problems of life. We have a great line up of speakers for the course, each with many years of counseling experience. The Going Deeper Course will offer 20 hours of instructions over 2 different weekends. 



Who should attend?


Anyone who has taken the Hope Center’s Fundamentals in Biblical Counseling (or a comparable course from ACBC) who wants to sharpen their counseling and ministry skills for the purpose of helping others use the Scriptures to respond to the difficulties of life in a way the pleases and glorifies God. Participants will also grow in their own knowledge of God’s Word and be challenged to grow in Christlikeness. For those not seeking counselor certification, the Advanced Course can be taken with or without having completed the Fundamentals Course. 

(This course has been approved by ACBC for 20 CEUs)
