“I need help” says a parent. “What should be my goal in parenting my child? Where are the detailed instructions on how I’m supposed to handle certain situations? How does the Gospel of Jesus Christ fit into this situation? What part does the church play in assisting me? I tried raising a godly family but one of my children is not interested in the things of God – what do I do?” Because not everything is spelled out in detail within Scripture (in the form of commands), wisdom is needed in applying the biblical principles to parents and their parenting. This session seeks to offer assistance towards this end.
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.
