What’s all this #bctconf about?

I’ve been asked by a few of my friends/followers what all this #BCTC stuff is in my tweets and Facebook updates.

My church hosts a Biblical Counseling Training Conference (BCTC) every year in February. It concentrates on equipping people to use biblical foundations and truths when helping others work through issues. It’s NOT about faith healing or denying the use of modern medicine. We aren’t preaching against psychiatry or psychology. The focus is counseling people with a solid foundation in the word of God.

Over 1600 people from all over the country (and the world) are in little ‘ol Lafayette, Indiana to receive teaching and training in how to counsel biblically. We offer classes to become certified in biblical counseling as well as emerging areas where biblical truths can be applied in counseling sessions (for example the use of technology to aid counseling, and also ways in which technology can influence someone to need counseling).

For the past 4 years, I’ve been blessed to be a part of this conference through the technology ministry. I take a few days off work so that I can be a part of something so great. It’s always a busy week for me and  Liz but we both  see the eternal value of all this effort.

We pray that those attending this week are served well. And if you have time, be sure to come back to the soundbooth and say ‘Hi’.
