Track Two (Offered again in 2011, Lord Willing)

The content of "Track One" complements the material presented in our previous "Track Two " class, but addresses different topics or similar topics in a slightly different manner. Note: Both "Track One" and "Track Two" are designed to stand alone. In other words, "Track One" is not a prerequisite for "Track Two."


Track Three (formerly known as Advanced Track)

Track Three is intended to equip the person who is serious about doing Biblical Counseling in the church. Each week will include: teaching on counseling issues that builds upon material from Tracks One and Two, discussion of practical elements in counseling, and observation of actual counseling. A key objective of the course is to encourage and enable participants to pursue NANC certification.
