If you’re looking to grow in biblical counseling, consider becoming a member of the Association of Biblical Counseling for resources, training and more!
The Association of Biblical Counselors exists to encourage, equip and enlist all believers everywhere to live and counsel the Word, applying the Gospel to the whole experience of life. What began in 2005 as a basic website to serve several dozen members has grown to serve several thousand pastors, ministry leaders, licensed professionals and parishioners, both nationally and internationally, by providing ongoing counseling training, resources and more!
There are many approaches to counseling within Christianity. Within the Association of Biblical Counselors, our particular approach will emphasize a robust theology of care stressing the roles of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the transformation process. We seek to draw from God’s special revelation – the Bible – to build a model of counseling wherein constructs such as justification, sanctification, glorification, sin, depravity, and grace (to name a few) are practically applied.
Who Should Join ABC?
- All believers who are committed to sound counsel from the Word in their own lives and as they minister to others.
- Pastor and people in ministry who are interested in providing biblical counsel.
- Licensed counselors who are committed to biblical counseling.
- Anyone interested in better understanding themselves and others.
Our ministry is structured in such a way that a broad spectrum of members may be well served. Whether you are a licensed professional seeking a deeper specialization in applying the Bible in your practice, a pastor seeking to connect your theological understanding with your role as shepherd and counselor, or a church parishioner or ministry leader longing to fulfill your call to “make disciples,” ABC has created specific resources to meet each of these unique positions within the Body of Christ.
Regardless of your profession or position, the beautiful, Gospel-founded truth is we are all called to counsel. Should you choose to become a member of ABC, please know we are honored to serve you and are continually working to provide services and resources that will reflect excellence so our members may richly benefit from being a part of our organization. We look forward to partnering with you in ministry and pray the Lord would richly bless you as you seek to serve His name!
