LAY COUNSELING / PRACTICAL MINISTRY TRAINING taught by Stephen Cloud

Lay Counseling/Practical Ministry Training is a two-semester course that begins in the fall. It not only equips you to begin counseling at the lay level, but it builds your knowledge base to more effectively conduct personal ministry whether over the fence, over coffee, or in various roles in the church. This is a great opportunity to sharpen your skills for personal ministry as well as test the waters to see if the Lord may direct you to become active in the counseling ministry. Visitors are welcome, but classroom space is limited. Classroom A209. Contact Tami or Mitzi at 776-5281, or altadena@briarwood.org, for more details.
