Cross Pointe Biblical Counseling Training Conference 2018

Overview

Real help for real problems.

In our communities and in our churches, hurting people are seeking help. The world offers many solutions, but not all are helpful. Some are even harmful. What can we offer that will give real solutions to real life problems that people face?

We can offer Jesus. God has given us answers for real life in his Word, and he guides us and leads us through even the most difficult problems. Everyone gives advice at some point in their life, will the counsel that you give be biblical? Will it point people to the one and true hope that we have?
