NCF Counseling and Member Care Seminar

“Designed for cross-cultural workers — member care providers, team leaders, administrators, counselors — anyone caring for people or personnel on field, anyone hoping to begin or improve a structure of caring, or called upon to address difficult and complex situations and counsel people, but feeling inadequately equipped to deal with the many problems they encounter in ministry.  Our skilled and highly experienced staff members emphasize a strong integration of biblical and theological truth with practical psychological insights and counseling techniques.”
