THE BUILDING PROJECT
Building up the local church through Biblical Cousneling
"Very often, we really do want to help the people around us however we can, but we get so focused on finding a quick solution to the external behavior that we overlook the real problem."
About The Building Project
When you hear that a church has a building project you may think of additions being added, renovations, or even a new facility being built. But just as the brick-and-mortar work is important, what we do, as churches, to build up the church, and investing in the people that make up the Church is far more important. We want to see churches thrive in their ability to meet all the needs of their people, physically, mentally, and spiritually, by being equipped with biblical counseling skills and resources.
The Building Project exists to equip the church to care by means of training church leaders and ministry leaders in various levels of Biblical counseling skills. We’ve found that churches often deeply desire to help others but often feel ill-equipped to do so, even those in church leadership roles. Our goal is to partner with churches to see the body of Christ become effective in its ministry to those who are seeking counsel, who are broken and hurting, both in the church and in their communities.
What We Do
We partner with local churches to offer whole body care, from leadership, ministry leaders, to anyone who wants to learn how to better equipped to care for those in the body of Christ.
