Why Our Ministry Is Different from Other Counseling Ministries

The answer to the question I’ve been asking is that we’re not just a training organization that provides biblical counseling information for Christians. Oh, yes; we teach, train, equip, and give data on all things counseling—like the others, but we do one thing more. We take information from its classical context and work with the unique person to make it original to them, according to their unique skills, talents, gift mix, and abilities. All BC organizations provide education; they are primarily informational, but rather than being like them, we customize the academic environment to the person’s unique life and context, helping them mature into the best disciple-maker they can be—according to who they are. There is a fatal flaw in most academic training: it’s informational to the student but not transformational, other than the passive change that happens from learning anything new.
