Counseling + Coaching + Recovery + Marriage and Family

You don’t want to miss this one!

What you will learn

Dear Colleague:

Built around the four streams of: Counseling, Recovery, Marriage and Family, and Professional Coaching, the 2020 Mega National Christian Counseling Conference will feature our signature “Specialization” Counselor Training and Coaching Intensives, along with engaging keynote addresses from “world-class” leaders, powerful praise and worship, cutting-edge professional workshops, fellowship, and networking. It is shaping up to be one of our best ever events! The best news, you can tailor the 2020 National Conference to meet your personal and professional needs!

Conference Option 1: Specialization Counselor Training and Coaching Intensives
Want more advanced training? Drawing on the latest research, each intensive will feature 12 full hours of in-depth training throughout the conference from national experts—all in an interactive, experiential environment. Connect with colleagues… learn and grow together… and best of all, walk away with a Professional Certificate of Completion that will better equip you to provide competent counsel and care. These intensives will run from Thursday morning through Saturday afternoon, breaking for plenary sessions.

Conference Option 2: Pre-conference and Conference Workshops
Pick and choose. Create your own conference schedule and make sure to come early for one of our full or half-day pre-conference workshops. In addition, you can choose from eight diverse professional conference tracks, including Child, Adolescent and Family Issues and Interventions, Love, Sexuality and Relationships, Couples in Crisis, Relationship Conflict and Marital Recovery, Grief, Crisis, Trauma and Disaster, Addiction, Relapse and Recovery, Clinical Assessment, Research and Evidence-based Practices, Professional Life Coaching and Consultation, The Faith Factor and Spiritual Interventions … and much more!

Whether it’s attending an Intensive or creating your own conference schedule, we promise you won’t be disappointed. Join counselors, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, pastors, ministry leaders, and coaches from around the world!

Our Mission:
To educate, empower and equip today’s Christian counselors, leaders, churches and parachurch organizations by creating a reservoir of knowledge, resources, support and networking opportunities for marriage and family issues.

My prayer is that you will join us to be better encouraged, trained and equipped in the work God is calling you to. Mark your calendar now for September 17-19, 2020! See you in Dallas!
