Cornerstone: In-Person Class

“Got questions? Need hope, wisdom, and encouragement? The Bible has the answers. 

This class provides a biblical foundation that equips us to deal with the challenges of life God’s way. Jeremy Pray, the Pastor of Biblical Counseling, teaches 32 lectures that cover over 105 biblical principles. It is so foundational and comprehensive that we also use it to train our future biblical counselors as they seek to help others (Colossians 1:28; 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:14; 2 Timothy 3:16-17). 

This in-depth discipleship class covers topics such as: salvation, sin, repentance, anger and forgiveness, fear and worry, marriage and parenting, depression, and various life-dominating sins.

Class Begins: Sept 7, 2022
Class Time: Wednesdays 6:45 – 8:00 pm
Location: Worship Center Rooms 119-20
Cost: $25 for the Self-Confrontation Manual and $10 (approx.) for When People are Big and God is Small by Edward Welch

Each Fall, NorthCreek hosts a 3-weekend conference bringing speakers from around the country to provide training for those who are interested in growing in counseling and discipleship. We provide 2 tracks. The Fundamentals Track is for those who are first-time attendees. This training contributes 30 hours to the first phase of ACBC certification. The Advanced Track is for those who have previously attended the Fundamentals Track or Cornerstone Self-Confrontation Class. These topics go deeper into biblical counseling and address complex problems from a biblical perspective.
