What can you do when a Christian friend is struggling?
Hello friends, my name is Dr. Joe Miller from Overseas Instruction in Counseling.
I want to extend to you an invitation to our Japan Summer Biblical Counseling Webinar. The title is: Troubled Lives and The Sufficiency of Christ and His Word to Provide Help and Hope.
This LIVE webinar will answer some critical questions that our society is facing today:
- What do the Scriptures have to say about various aspects and issues of life?
- What instruction, encouragement, help and hope do the Scriptures provide?
- How should Christians and the local church leaders think about prevalent issues occurring in our society today?
This webinar includes lectures from highly credentialed leaders in the international biblical counseling movement. This webinar is available to everyone who is interested in how the Scriptures and the local church can be a source of help and hope for those in need both inside and outside your church.
This is a two-day event, with two sessions on Friday, June 26 and four sessions on Saturday, June 27. You can attend any session you would like. You do not have to attend all the sessions.
The Friday program is scheduled for 7:30 to 9:30pm (JST). Our Saturday sessions will be held from 1pm to 6:00pm (JST).
