Training Opportunities

BEGINNING TRAINING: Road to Emmaus is an ACBC certified training center.  We desire to raise up counselors in the Pacific Northwest who will faithfully minister God’s Word in their churches and communities as they counsel.  Our certification means ACBC will accept our 30 hours of instruction in the Fundamentals in Biblical Counseling Course as satisfactory towards meeting their minimum education requirement when you desire certification with ACBC. Seven instructors who are experienced counselors with over 100 years of combined counseling or pastoral experience present our teaching. 

In 2020 the Beginning Fundamentals Course will be offered on the weekends of March 6-7, April 3-4, and May 1-2, beginning at 5:45 pm on Fridays and 8:30 AM on Saturdays. The cost for the three weekends of training (3 weekends for the one course) is only $100. To register clink on the button below.

ADVANCED TRAINING: At the same time we are offering the Fundamentals Course, we will be offering two weekends of Advanced Training. On March 6 and 7 Dr. Ernie Baker will be here. Dr. Baker has been in ministry since 1980. Twenty-five of these years were spent in pastoral ministry which included training and equipping pastors and laymen in the skills of discipleship counseling and conciliation before serving as Professor of Biblical Counseling at The Master’s University and Seminary. Ernie has the privilege now of serving as Pastor of Counseling at First Baptist of Jacksonville where he helps oversee pastoral care and the Grace Center for Biblical Counseling.

On April 3 and 4 Dr. Scott Mehl will be with us. Scott is the husband to Lara and father to Harper, Addison, Lincoln, and Skylar. His passion for the lost and for God’s work in and through the local church brought him to West LA in 2005, and that same passion has allowed the city to truly become his family’s earthly home. Scott serves the church as a part of the preaching team and by overseeing leadership development, global ministries, and counseling/discipleship.

Look for details in Novemeber as we set the exact topics and times for Dr. Baker’s and Dr. Mehl’s presentations in the coming days.
