How to Launch a Counseling Center

bibCenterFor Those Giving Help8 Comments

Have you wondered if your church could have its own biblical counseling ministry?

You can but it take some careful planning and equipping to LAUNCH a biblical counseling ministry with excellence.  We would love the opportunity to help you.

Check out these stories of churches that got the vision to reach their church and community through Biblical Counseling with lay counselors trained by the Biblical Counseling Center through our LAUNCH Partnerships.

Church Story 1: A number of years ago we came alongside a Chicago church and helped them set up a successful counseling center within their walls to meet the needs of people with family and marriage issues and with other problems — from addiction to financial struggles to porn to anger/fear/depression, you name it. Within weeks of the counseling center’s opening, hurting people heard the power of God’s Word and received care. Lives were changed, God got the glory. The church is stronger than ever. It is reaching out to the community and more people are getting help and most important: the gospel!

Church Story 2: This spring four couples at another church in the Midwest decided to launch a counseling center at their church. They needed candid instruction from BCC trainers as well as equipping in biblical counseling. This group — now half way through training — has a vision to share the timeless truth of God’s Word and bring about practical change in broken people’s lives. Our conversations with them as well as our Launch strategies have encouraged them and given them a path to follow and support.
