How People Change

How People Change is an online five-week course based on Paul David Tripp and Timothy Lane’s book How People Change. Mario Suwendy, a biblical counselor with Kasih Care, will be the course trainer. How People Change is an introduction to biblical counseling. The course will feature an instructive, lecture component, and an interactive component where participants will discuss topics in Zoom breakout rooms. The course will explain the integral role of counseling in the church community. And explore how to care for, engage with, and walk alongside people with a confidence rooted in the Bible. Participants will complete self-reflective work to prepare for each session, as they personally prepare to help others through the ministry of the word of God. There is no prerequisite knowledge or experience needed to join this course.
