Each hour of audio requires about $500 to record, produce and publish. We are dedicated to providing these audios for free to help expand the conversation on Biblical Counseling and fulfill our mission to equip the church in one-another care. By partnering with us and sponsoring an audio, we will be able to lower the price of attendance to the various conferences we host. Conferences are the #1 way in which we generate the majority of our content and price of attendance has continued to rise to cover all the costs associated with the generation of content. You money will go to securing speakers and their travel arrangements as well as the cost of recording, editing and sharing the audio file.
Recently we began hosting a bi-weekly podcast containing interviews and conversations about Biblical Counseling. Each 20 minute episodes costs $300 to produce. Like our other audio mp3 we offer these freely in hopes of extending the conversation on Biblical Counseling. Sponsoring an episode will enable us to continue producing this important resource on a regular basis.
Live Counseling Donations
Every Monday night we do live on-site counseling for the broader So-Cal Community. This enables us to keep our ACBC certified counselors sharp and in practice as well as offer the ability to for students at the local seminary and members of churches to come and observe a live counseling session. We offer this counseling to the community for free and often have a 2 month wait list. Every hour of counseling we offer costs approximately $100, from paying our Counselors to just keeping the lights on, we feel that offering free counseling is an integral part of our ministry.
We are currently working on a variety of special projects that we hope to offer freely. One project is the ACBC video prep exam. A bridge course of videos interviewing ACBC Fellows about the 50 questions and what answers they are looking for to help trainees prepare for the exam. Another project is our “101 Go To Text’s” project. You can read more about it Here. The “101 Go to Text’s” project is an attempt to create short articles that help new counselors learn how experience counselors constantly reuse texts for recurring counseling situations.
