Making Disciple-Makers by Speaking the Truth in Love - Eph. 4:15 -16
We are enthusiastic about the opportunities we have to teach and train leaders how to implement biblical counseling in their respective local churches, and we like to implement all our ministry initiatives in teams of two or more. “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil” (Eccles. 4:9). The mission of Truth in Love is to empower the body of Christ to make disciple-makers locally to globally. We are passionate about not only making disciples of all people groups, but also making disciple-makers – those who have been transformed by the gospel of grace who then become those whom God uses to be agents of others’ transformation. We think our two-by-two model is the wisest way to multiply disciple-makers in the Body of Christ. We are ready to TEAM UP with your local church.
Training in Biblical Counseling
How can I impact those in my church and my community? Who should counsel a hurting soul? What is biblical counseling? What makes it biblical? How can my church speak the truth in love in a Christ-centered way? What is the church’s responsibility in caring for the souls God sends their way? Should we refer to the world’s “experts”? What about addiction?Read More
Counseling Ministry Consultations
We want to help your church fulfill the command “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12). Having a team of trained biblical counselors encourages pastoral leadership by carrying some of the counseling load. Ask us how our team model can assist your church in this vital outreach to souls.Read More
Addiction Specific Training
Kingdom building opportunities are upon us as very few people have not heard that we have a “crisis” on our hands in light of accidental overdoses and tainted drugs on the streets. The local church has the eternal answer in Jesus Christ. Training in addictions as a "worship disorder" and not a "disease" will help mobilize your church to strategically and biblically help those struggling with addictive sin habits.Read More
Surgeon General Advisory Warning Issued
Until this past week, it had been 13 years since the last Surgeon General warning. That one had to do with pregnancy and drinking alcohol. The advisory this week encourages those taking opioid prescriptions and friends/family of those who take those prescriptions to carry naloxone, an overdose-reversing drug. But will this advisory help? I guess it does raise awareness of […]
The Florida Shuffle – Rehab Scams
For years, I have been hearing about all of the fraudulent activity in Florida rehab programs. Many of the sober living homes in parts of Florida were not interested in sobriety but relapse. Treatment programs are high priced even for those who have to repeat the programs that often don’t work. Drug screens are high priced. It is a billion […]
Involuntary Commitments to Treatment?
What an interesting concept being considered in New Jersey right now: involuntary commitments for addicts who need to go to treatment but are resistant to enter a program. With 2,221 drug overdose deaths in 2016, New Jersey government leaders are contemplating involuntary placements for addicted people. In the past, substance abuse has not been a qualifying condition for involuntary placements […]
