This project sought to create a biblical counseling ministry that will equip local churches and believers to engage effectively in biblical counseling with confidence and assurance that God’s Word is authoritative and sufficient for life transformation of those in need of counsel.

Chapter 2 provides an exegesis of multiple passages of Scripture to demonstrate the necessity and sufficiency of biblical counseling. Chapter 3 presents the historical/practical/theoretical ideas behind counseling, both secular and biblical. Chapter 4 describes the project itself, including the curriculum and methodology utilized to complete this ministry project. Chapter 5 evaluates the efficacy of the project based on completion of the specified goals. Overall, the overarching purpose of this project is to equip believers competently and confidently to counsel those around them for life transformation through the Word of God for the glory of God.
