At BC Africa our desire is for pastoral care and counselling to become part of the very fabric of our churches and wider communities. This level is therefore designed for anyone who longs to see the power and wisdom of God bring change to their own lives and the lives of those around them.
Level 1 consists of introductory seminars and courses for anyone interested or involved in pastoral care and biblical counselling. In all of our training, we aim to provide attendees with a theological vision, practical ideas, and tools.
Equipped to Love
The Equipped to Love course is our foundational 8-week programme designed to equip the local church for more effective interpersonal ministry through pastoral conversations.

We offer such opportunities as sermons, camps, weekly training sessions, ministry leadership team consultations, home group leadership training, consultations in establishing a counselling ministry, topical seminars, discussions, and more.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to meet with a member of our training team, or would like to discuss a training opportunity.
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
