Course Description

Continuing the theme of disciple-making, this second course from the Faith Counseling Institute offers 36 hours of instruction addressing the individual needs and struggles of men and women.

Target Audience

Anyone can profit from this course who makes his own growth in Christ a priority and wants to help others in their Christian walk. The course is appropriate for parents, college students, church and ministry staff members, missionaries, Sunday school teachers and Bible study group leaders.

Note: Because of the sexual topics discussed in some of the sessions, we recommend that parents who wish their mature high school student to have this training watch the sessions with their teen.
