Course Dates: April 9-20, 2018
This course is designed to help Christians minister to one another and to introduce them to counseling skills used to help people. We will study the counseling skills used by Jesus and model these skills when ministering to premarital couples, married couples, divorced couples, families, depressed and suicidal persons, sick, dying and bereaved persons.
We have taught this course to Christians in churches, nonprofit organizations and a Bible College. It has been used to help persons in many of our communities but there are so many more persons to be helped in our churches and communities.
As Christians, “we follow Jesus and do what Jesus did — love, serve, reach, teach, pray”. Join us in “Training Christians to Counsel” as we explore the ways we can use our spiritual gifts to help others.

Shirley was ordained after completing seminary while serving in ministry with three Baptist pastors and went on to serve as associate and senior pastor in the United Methodist Church.
