Welcome to a New Year!

2013 was a year of significant change in the Biblical Counseling world. After nearly 40 years NANC, the National Association of Biblical Counselors changed its name to the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC). The national headquarters moved to Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY, and Heath Lambert assumed the position of Executive Director. An incredible vision was cast for the years ahead that will continue to provide excellence in the training and certification of Biblical Counselors, and in making Biblical Counseling more accessible. Abiding Word Ministries is certified through and a member of ACBC. The website for Abiding Word Ministries has a great new look thanks to Allen Oliver and 02 Design Works, making it more accessible to mobile devices. All of our resources are now available as free downloads with several new series planned for early 2014. In 2013 the Lord allowed us to minister to several hundred individuals and couples through nearly 1,000 sessions. We look forward to serving our Lord and His church in 2014, and are forever grateful for His grace and for the prayers and support of our Ministry Partners and our Partnering churches. May His every blessing overtake you in this New Year!
