Biblical Discipleship Counseling
And we urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted,
help the weak, be patient with all men.
(1 Thessalonians 5:14)
And we proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ.
And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses,
these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
(2 Timothy 2:2)
