I am reaching out to you to make sure you were invited to this year’s conference. As we have done in the past, we will have a different theme this year than previous conferences. Our conference is also in a different location this year! This March 2-3, 2018 the annual B3 (Bearing One Another’s Burdens Biblically) Conference will be held at Faith Community Church in Kansas City, Missouri.
The theme of this year’s conference is Train Up a Child. We have constructed it to help counselors, teaching professionals and parents who deal with the next generation every day. We are bringing in a variety of speakers to help parents raise godly children in a world that is increasingly moving against biblical standards and principles. Every parent knows someone whose child has been affected by the behaviors associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Christians who foster and have adopted children are faced with raising children who are often labeled with Reactive Attachment Disorder, ADD/ADHD or both. They want to approach these diagnoses biblically, but find there are few biblical places to turn for wisdom and help.
We are bringing together some of the individuals who are dedicated to meeting these needs.
Dr. Daniel Berger II is an experienced teacher, counselor, pastor, and school administrator with undergraduate and advanced degrees in counseling/psychology, pastoral studies, and holds a doctorate in pastoral theology. He is the author of a five-volume series on the mental illness construct. In addition, Daniel has spent many years researching ADHD as well as teaching and counseling children of all ages. I worked with Dr. Berger to specifically design his talks to be a practical help for couples and parents, not just counselors. We want counselors to attend, but we know that many people who are on the front lines need good practical biblical advice. He will present answers that produce genuine hope and lasting change.
In concert with the main sessions that Dr. Berger has been working on, I am excited to tell you that we have a broad spectrum of workshops that will be presented by leaders in these areas of biblical counseling. Some of the topics include ADD/ADHD, The Insanity of Madness, Parenting the Adopted Child, Self-Esteem, Teens and Substance Abuse, Teens and Pornography, and we will have a Christian child protection expert present to present information on keeping kids safe. We will have 6 workshops available for you to choose from in addition to our plenary sessions. See the complete list at: b3conference.org/schedule.
We are currently in our early registration phase, that ends on January 31st. On February 1st, prices will increase by $10 per ticket. Register at: b3conference.org. I am looking forward to seeing you at our conference in March. Please let me know if you have any questions.
