What’s in a Name?

Why the name E4:12?

You may be wondering, “Why the name E4:12?” The vision of E4:12 as part of the counselling ministry comes from Ephesians 4:12: “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ”. We know from this passage that growth in the body of Christ happens when the members of the Body of Christ work together to build each other up. We want to come alongside pastors and church leaders to help equip their members for works of service in the church.

E4:12 Training

Biblical counselling training online

The E4:12 Training courses are run in collaboration with CCEF’s School of Biblical Counseling. Insight is coordinating groups of 5 or more students who are interested in pursuing biblical counselling training. This local cohort of students will not only enjoy the flexibility of online lectures, but also be give n opportunities to connect with each other online and in person, together with their Online Instructor. Groups rates are offered at a fraction of CCEF’s standard fee for groups of international students.

So, you or other people in your church can receive Christ-centered biblical training that will better equip you and/or them to walk alongside others in the local church and the community- and they can do so not simply on their own, or with a cohort of students from around the world, but with other like-minded Christians in your own backyard.

“This training is not only for someone wanting to pursue a career in biblical counselling, but also to equip pastoral staff, lay leaders and other members to better serve God’s people- while growing in grace themselves!”
