CRC More Than Counseling Conference

  • Scofield 7730 Abrams Road Dallas, TX 75231 (map)

We are really excited about this opportunity to host The Center for Relational Care.  All of the Elders at Normandy have at been counseled through their ministry.  We value their ministry so much, that we offered to host one of their conferences!  We would encourage everyone in our church to attend if you can.  

More Than Counseling Conference

These two-day training workshops are designed to introduce pastoral and professional counselors, therapists, and care ministry teams to the principles and methods of Intimacy Therapy, and to challenge the highly skilled to be a part of equipping the laity for the work of caring for people in pain using biblical principles and processes. For Licensed Counselors, up to 14 continuing education credits may be earned through the workshop.

The Center for Relational Care

In addition to providing counseling services for accelerated healing and change, the Center for Relational Care partner with churches, ministries, and other organizations around the world to provide a continuum of care and relational enrichment for marriages, families, and individuals. To this end, the Center for Relational Care trains and equips counselors and churches to minister effectively to hurting people using Intimacy Therapy.

Their staff of professional and pastoral counselors is trained in the Accelerated Relational Care (ARC) Process, a unique approach for helping people in crisis as well as those who simply want to experience more joy and meaning in life. By helping people experience biblical principles for deepening their relationship with God and others, they seek to halt the destruction of unhealthy patterns, bringing hope and healing to broken relationships, wounded hearts, and damaged lives.
