The Shepherd’s Way Biblical Counseling Centers (tSw) not only provide venues for Reformed Biblical Counseling, but also provide opportunities for those pursuing IRBC certification after their completing their basic training in biblical counseling. Along with fulfilling additional reading and counseling observation requirements, those pursuing certification must successfully sustain theological and counseling exams, as well as engage in 50 hours of supervised counseling.
A Double Blessing – The tSw counseling centers have been used of God to provide for His people a double blessing. One dimension of the blessing is experienced by those who counsel. Our counselor trainees are blessed as the Lord brings to them people from the communities for counseling, thereby assisting them in fulfilling their supervised counseling requirements. Members of the community are also blessed as tSw’s counselors are used to bring God’s truth to bear on the issues with which they are dealing.
We thank the Lord for the manner in which He is using these centers to bless those who are being counseled. So far we have received excellent feedback from both local pastors who have referred congregants for counseling, and from counselees. We have truly been blessed with wonderful counselors at our tSw centers. Please pray that God will continue to use the counselors at these centers to richly bless God’s suffering people in this region.
