Welcome to Biblical Counseling at Harvest Bible Chapel, Fort Wayne!

We are so excited that you want to learn more about joining our incredible team of disciple makers. Biblical Counseling is an awesome opportunity to be at the front line of helping people grow in their love for Jesus. 

Here are few things you need to know.

There are two tiers of counselors at HBCFW (see the attached Counselor Funnel for more details):

Counselor: This type of counselor meets the basic requirements to disciple people in a formal counseling context. Requirements for this level are outlined in Steps 1, 2, and 3 on the Counselor Funnel. 

Elder Endorsed Counselor: This type of counselor will go through a rigorous training that equips the counselor to handle intensive counseling cases. Steps 1-6 on the Counselor Funnel need to be completed to become Elder Endorsed. 

Here is how you get started:

Attached are the check lists of required readings for both Counselors and Elder Endorsed Counselors.

There are no time limits for completing the work. We want you to be able to work at a pace that will allow you to retain the information you learn as well as provide a healthy balance to your other responsibilities. 

You do not need to purchase every book and article required. We have a lending library in the church office that you are welcome to utilize. Please let Jill know what books and articles you need and she will be sure to get them to you. 

Welcome to Biblical Counseling! We are excited to have you on the team!
