A. Meet Twice a Month with LCBCC Director
Partner with the LCBCC Director, Tim Bryant to set up or strengthen a Soul Care Ministry in your church or a Counseling Center in your community utilizing five elements in our development strategy.
- The process begins with a personal vision meeting with you by our director. Tim will tailor the elements of our Step Up Strategy with you in light of your ministry context so that what you need and desire from us most will begin first.
- This is followed by a site visit to your church or community for a group vision meeting inviting key leaders and those people who you think would make good potential members in your counseling ministry.
- After this, one or more Onsite Step Up Events are scheduled to further train your team members and increase community and church awareness of biblical counseling solutions and inspire their participation.
- As all three of these things above are occurring, all counseling team members begin their equipping through Enrollment in the Foundations Course: Change that Sticks. (You receive 6 free enrollments)
- As team members are being equipped, bi-monthly meetings are scheduled with you and your team to help you keep building on our Five Keys to Successful Soul Care Ministry
