The Next Step
On June 16th I will be flying back to Salem, Oregon to begin staff training for the Next counseling school running at my home base. The Foundations for Counseling Ministry school (FCM) is a 6-month course aimed to introduce students to a Biblical framework for Christian counseling. Students will learn skills to provide counseling to a hurt and broken world. People of all cultures have experienced the pain that comes from broken relationships; our challenge and privilege as Christians is to proclaim the power of the Gospel in mending broken hearts. FCM is about learning the ways of God in order to provide counsel from a Biblical point of view. Things are already in motion – we have 27 students accepted, a handful still on the waiting list, with speakers lined up to teach. A praise report from just this week: a connection was made for the outreach team to have the opportunity to serve in Greece. The team will be going to the front lines of the refugee crises. More info on the outreach coming in the next newsletter.
- For the hearts of the students getting ready to come to the Foundation of Counseling Ministry school to be prepared.
- For the details of our outreach in October and November to Greece to come together smoothly.
- For the ministry ideas that are stirring in me to come together in a way to clearly practically communicate and apply everything God is showing me.
I am 72% funded! Thank you!
