Training Opportunities

BEGINNING TRAINING: Fundamentals In Biblical Counseling Course

Road to Emmaus is an ACBC certified training center.  We desire to raise up counselors in the Pacific Northwest who will faithfully minister God’s Word in their churches and communities as they counsel.  Our certification means ACBC will accept our 30 hours of instruction in the Fundamentals in Biblical Counseling Course as satisfactory towards meeting the minimum education requirement when you desire certification with ACBC. Instructors who are experienced counselors with over 100 years of combined counseling or pastoral experience present our teaching.  We offer our beginning training in counseling every spring.  In 2023 the dates are March 10-11, April 14-15, and May 5-6.  On Friday the sessions are from 5:45 to 9:30 PM. On Saturday we meet from 8:15 to 5 PM. The total cost for all three weekends is $100.

'The Bible teaches that counseling is part of the normal process or one-anothering or discipling that all Christians are called to as we live life together and experience the pain and the bearing of one another’s burdens. '

'At Road To Emmaus, we counsel people using God’s all-sufficient Word, and we host training to equip people to come alongside others with the hope found in God’s Book.'

'Biblical Counseling is what happens when you use God’s Word to have a conversation with and show care to people who are hurting and in need of God’s wisdom and guidance.'
