What others are saying:


"In the past, many have fought for Biblical inerrancy. As it pertains to the counseling environment, Biblical sufficiency is of primary importance to address the issues of life. What we found most beneficial was those who completed the course developed a greater confidence in the Scriptures as they search the Bible for answers previously sought through other means. This training is a “must” for all believers regardless of their role in the church. It's the only training that I find is able to do such a thorough job of equipping the saints for such a task."
