Dr. Neil T. Anderson Boston Conference May 2-3, 2008 : Discipleship Counseling (9 Videos)
From Dr. Neil Anderson's invitation to the conference: "Many pastors are overwhelmed by the problems besetting their people, and some feel they are not adequately equipped to deal with them. In addition, most pastors don't want or can't handle one more activity on their plate.
Freedom in Christ Ministries is fully aware of the problems that pastors are facing. In addition, there aren’t enough pastors and counselors in this country to help more than five percent of the population if that is all they did.
We have to equip the lay person to do the work of ministry or it is not going to get done. Discipleship Counseling is a ministry that can be accomplished by well trained lay people. Several exploratory studies and research dissertations are clearly showing the positive results of Discipleship Counseling and the encouragers in the studies were all lay people.
The process works, because Discipleship Counseling intentionally includes God in the process. He is the Wonderful Counselor and the only One who can set a captive free and bind up the broken hearted. I am asking Christian leaders to give us a day to show them how this can happen in their church at a minimal cost. It will take a heavy load off the pastor and many will be helped in the process. A church full of liberated people will become the salt and light in a dark world that desperately needs the Light of God's glory.”
