Columbus Biblical Counseling Conference 2018 

Life can be difficult!  If your road is presently an easy stretch, likely you will soon encounter a sudden curve or sharp turn.  Welcome to Life 101!

In this world of struggle and hurt, you will find a maze of view points available to help you deal with life.  Unfortunately, most philosophies offer only short-term solutions that may not help you reach the finish line.  But God is able to help us do more than cope with life's challenges.

What do you say to your friend, neighbor, or co-worker who shares his or her crisis with you? What insights do you share?

Instead of offering condolences or clichés, you can offer something far more significant -- real hope!  The Bible gives this amazing promise: "His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness." (2 Peter 1:3)

We have the sufficiency of God's word to help impact others for God's glory.  It alone has the eternal answers we need to not simply exist or "get by," but to live victoriously!

Join us for a weekend of counseling workshops which will sharpen your counseling skills.  You will benefit first-hand from these biblical tools to handle life in a God-pleasing way.  Your participation will be an invaluable investment, as together we look to the timeless Scriptures for the answers to life's challenges!
