Biblical Counseling Training Class
Grace Bible Church’s biblical counseling ministry is preparing for the next offering of biblical counseling training classes. GBC’s counseling ministry is called Biblical Counseling of the East Valley (bcev.org) and it is a certified training center for The Association of Biblical Counselors (ACBC) (https://biblicalcounseling. com). The next class will begin on August 24, 2019. This class fulfills ACBC’s 30-hours of classroom training. If you have questions about the classes or the counseling ministry please contact Tom Angstead (tom@gbcaz.org).

The Master’s University Scholarship Fund
The Master’s University (a private Christian university in California) has established a unique relationship with Grace Bible Church, recognizing an opportunity to help theologically like-minded students attend TMU. The elders of GBC would like you to consider helping students from Grace Bible Church attend undergraduate programs at The Master’s University. You can give to this need by indicating your desire on your financial gift to GBC by including the note “TMU Founder’s Fund”. You can also recommend donations for a specific student. You can find out more by contacting Smedly Yates (smedly@gbcaz.org).
