G360 Biblical Counseling Module (2022)

Week 1: What is Biblical Counseling

Goal: To help apprentices locate biblical counselling in our Christian life and ministry, and the ministry of the Word in the local church.

Illustration 1: Summary of Week 1 on Biblical Counseling being a form of Word Ministry

Week 2: History of Biblical Counseling

Goal: To give apprentices a basic understanding of the history of the biblical counselling movement. Reflection on the past helps us understand the present, and guards us from repeating mistakes of former days. History also makes us aware of the theological pendulum swing of our times, both globally and in Singapore.
