Lay Counseling Training

Hebrews 5:14 reminds us that "solid food is for the mature, who from practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil."

  • A sign of maturity is our capacity for "solid food"
  • Discernment doesn't just happen, it requires intentional practice.

Our counseling training is especially designed to equip mature believers with the practical skills needed to encourage, exhort, and demonstrate love to other members of the IBC family. Like a sport therapist who helps an athlete restore joint mobility, strength, and endurance, our lay counselors are trained to help restore spiritual and emotional growth and health.
