Millar offers several weeklong modular courses throughout the college year. These courses are designed to help address topics and subjects that our students won’t cover in their core course load. In our desire to partner with local churches, we want to extend an invitation for folks in the region to come and participate in one or more of the courses we offer. You can click on the dates below to see which classes will be offered during those times.
October 31-November 4, 2016
Introduction to Biblical Counseling (Dr. David Brandon)
There is the need of both formal and informal counseling, from a variety of human sources, during life’s many struggles. Ultimately, though, it is God’s presence (John 15:9-11), evaluation (Hebrews 4:12) and correction (2 Timothy 3:16) which are most important. We call this “Biblical Counseling“. This course is an introduction to its historical development and significance today in local church ministry
