8 Reasons To Pursue ACBC Certification.

PURSUING ACBC CERTIFICATION Be a trained, certified biblical counselor with ACBC, The Association of Certified Biblical Counselors .     8 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD PURSUE IT. 1. PERSONAL GROWTH AND KNOWLEDGE As you work through the required steps toward ACBC certification you will understand more of God’s Word and increase your knowledge of God, of Christ, of the gospel, and how it specifically applies to everyday situations of life.
