Biblical Counselor Training (IABC)
Become Biblically Equipped to Help Others
God has called the church to minister to others for His glory. The Faith Fellowship Biblical Counseling Center exists with that calling in mind, and seeks to equip believers in effectively ministering God’s Word to hurting people. As first our own lives in Christ are enriched and strengthened by the sufficient and authoritative Word of God through the empowering of the Holy Spirit, we also grow in effective ministry to others.
