The IRBC Basic Training Course in Reformed Biblical Counseling

Training Christians to Counsel in the Light of God’s Truth from a Reformed Perspective

 

Testimonials: 

“Just a note to say how much my wife and I have appreciated the opportunity to take the IRBC class.  I can say that I have never taken a class that I would so highly recommend. Sound Biblically based teaching on counseling.  The IRBC course lays out sound principles for counseling others in either a formal or informal setting.  I have already used many of the principles laid out in this course in my interactions with others. I would suggest that anyone would benefit from taking this course.  It will affect you in ways you never thought possible.  It will make you look at yourself, your marriage and others in a completely different light.  It will also humble you, expose your own sins and help you to be thankful to God that you are delivered from your sins by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (~Student from 2021-2022 WA Class)

“The Basic Training Class has given me a solid foundation upon which to add further study of the Bible, other books, and information that will expand my knowledge base as I move on in the training. If you are considering and praying about whether or not to take this class, take it. How would you not benefit from seeing yet another example of the Word of God being ‘profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness’ (2 Timothy 3:16)?” (~Student from the 2021-2022 SD Class)

“This course has really helped me just as a person living in the light of God’s Word to be more deliberate and gain valuable tools/resources for my life as a wife and mother. Tidbits to share as we gather as family and babysit grandkids. Words of wisdom to share when walking with a friend. I call it kitchen table counseling. It has also been very beneficial for my interactions with the residents I work with to have confidence to ask them about their life with the Lord and to give them direction and love. I would recommend it to any church member. So many valuable lessons that just don’t come up in a weekly sermon.” (~Student from 2021-2022 WA Class)
