CBF strongly encourages every Christian, especially those in leadership, avail themselves of this training.  

      The Christian Counseling & Training Center (CCTC) was established in 1981 in order to assist the local church with the task of training biblical counselors and to provide a biblical counseling service to the Richmond community-at-large.  The law of Christ to “bear one another’s burdens” (Galatians 6:1-4) calls every Christian to become equipped for the work of encouraging others in the midst of the struggles of life (II Corinthians 1:3-4; Colossians 3:16).


The financial support of CCTC comes primarily from gifts offered by counselees, students, local congregations, and friends in the community. Tuition for courses is kept at a minimum so as to enable as many as possible to be trained.

         CCTC offers assistance to the entire community by providing biblical counseling on a donation basis to those who seek assistance. Consultation is also available to pastors and other leaders in the church who are actively involved in counseling.
         CCTC seeks to aid the church in the area of training by offering courses, advanced training in the development of Biblical counseling skills, and seminars which are designed to teach the principles and skills of biblical encouragement. This instruction focuses on the application of biblical principles to the personal and interpersonal problems which people face in the course of daily living.
