Counselling Conference 2017

Writing to the church in Rome, Paul expressed his confidence that the church, equipped with the Scriptures and led by the Holy Spirit, had what it required to effectively counsel its own people: “I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another” (Romans 15:14).

Counselling is frequently outsourced by local churches to “professional” counsellors: psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, etc. It is our conviction, as a church, that the Scriptures are sufficient to counsel, and that Spirit-led believers are competent to counsel each other.

Bethany Bible Church in Washington, Illinois, is a church that understands and effectively models a local church-based counselling ministry. We were privileged to host three Bethany elders—Daniel Bennett, Kirk Hoffman and Dave Robinson—who spoke on how every member of the local church can be equipped through the Scriptures to counsel. The recordings of these sessions can be accessed below.
