This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana.
People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.
Dr. Higbee is Director of Pastoral Care for the Great Commission Collective, a church planting movement with over 100 churches worldwide. He is also the President and founder of Twelve Stones Ministries in Brown County, Indiana.
Garrett was trained as a clinical psychologist with a specialty in marriage and family counseling but had a radical conversion in 1992, which led him to trust in Christ and His Word for all things related to life and counseling. Dr. Higbee has developed a highly effective church-based model of discipleship and soul care engaging every believer based on Ephesians chapter 4. He is dedicated to helping churches thrive both in leadership and as an authentic culture of soul care.
Garrett is a founding board member of the Biblical Counseling Coalition and is a sought-after consultant, frequent conference speaker and a contributing author for several Christian counseling books. He loves to equip church members and leaders by conducting training which spans from intentional to intensive discipleship.
Garrett and his wife Tammy have three children, Rachel, Zach and Sarah. They live in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he started Soul Care Consulting, a ministry that helps leaders and their churches get healthy and stay healthy.
