2 FAQ s What is lay counseling? Lay counseling is a time-limited relationship to provide support to work through a specific issue, struggle or crisis. In addition counseling seeks to improve relationship skills in which non-professionals or paraprofessionals try to help a person, couple or family deal effectively with the stresses of life. Is there a cost to the training? The cost for the 30 week training is $85, which represents a 50% discount off the actual cost. The balance will be covered by the Lay counseling department. Are there scholarships available? No. Will everyone who applies be accepted into the program? No. Often people have the heart but may not be gifted in counseling. Because we are dealing with real life difficulties, our screening process is intensive and bathed in pray by the board who oversees the ministry. If I m accepted how long will the training take? 30 weeks. Meetings are weekly on Wednesday night from 6:30 until 8:00 PM. If I miss a session, can I make it up? This is at the discretion of the Director of Counseling and will be decided case by case. Our hope is that you are fully committed to the process, but we understand emergencies arise. Who oversees the Lay Counseling ministry? The Lay counseling ministry has a board of directors that includes the Pastor of Recovery & Counseling, Associate Pastor of Recovery & Counseling, current Lay Counselors, and a licensed marriage and family therapist. How will I know if I am accepted into the program? After your application is complete and all referral letters have been received, you will be called for an interview with the Associate Pastor of Recovery & Counseling. A letter of acceptance or denial will follow that meeting. Will I be paid for my time as a Lay counselor? No. Lay counseling is a volunteer ministry. You will not be on staff at BVG and you will not receive compensation for your time. Will additional or ongoing training be required? Because it is important to stay current on methods and materials, there will be ongoing training required. This is still under advisement.

Photographic Identification:
9 STATEMENT OF FAITH AND MISSION STATEMENT Statement of Faith We believe and accept the following statements as essentials for the unity and practice of the members of this church: 1. THE AUTHORITY OF THE BIBLE (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21)We believe the 66 books of Old and New Testaments are a complete and final revelation from God, without error in the original autographs, and sufficient in themselves as our only rule of faith and practice. 2. THE TRIUNITY OF GOD (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14) We believe that God is one, manifesting Himself in three distinct and separate Persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of Whom is God and to be honored and worshiped as God. 3. THE PERSON AND WORK OF JESUS CHRIST (Matthew 1:23; John 1:1, 14, 29; 3:16; I Corinthians 15:3, 4, 12-19; Hebrews 4:15; I John 2:1-2; Acts 1:9-11) We believe that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, born of a virgin, sinless, crucified for our sins, resurrected from the dead, ascended to heaven, and coming back again to establish His Kingdom on earth. 4. THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT (John 3:5; 14:16-17; 16:7-13; Romans 8:14; I Corinthians 6:11, 19; 12:13; Galatians 5:16-17; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18-21) We believe the Holy Spirit is God, convicting the world, causing spiritual birth, baptizing all believers into one body in Christ, indwelling, sealing, sanctifying, guiding, and teaching every believer, as well as filling and controlling those who walk in obedience to God and His Word. 5. THE CREATION AND FALL OF MAN (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:7; 3:1-24; Romans 3:23; 5:12; Ephesians 2:3) We believe that man was created by God in His own image, and not the product of evolution or animal ancestry; that he fell into sin by personal disobedience to the revealed will of God, and that all men and women are sinful in nature and practice, and unable to save themselves. 6. THE SALVATION OF MAN (John 3:16; 14:6; Acts 16:31; Romans 3:24; 6:23; 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:18-19, 22-25; I John 5:11-13) We believe that salvation is the free gift of God s grace, from sin, death and hell, to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Every believer has eternal life and complete security in the finished work of Jesus Christ when He died on the cross for our sins, and arose from the dead, thus guaranteeing our own resurrection and eternal life. 7. HUMAN DESTINY (Matthew 25:46; John 3:16; 5:24; 10:28-29; Romans 9:22-24; II Corinthians 5:8, I Thessalonians 1:9-10; 4:13-18; II Thessalonians 1:7-10; Jude ; Revelation 20:11-15) We believe in the eternal life of all believers in a new heaven and a new earth, and that upon physical death, they go immediately to be with Christ in heaven awaiting their future bodily resurrection at the second coming of Christ, and in the resurrection of all unbelievers to stand before the Great White Throne Judgment of God from which they will be cast into eternal fire and everlasting punishment.
10 8. THE EXISTENCE OF SATAN & EVIL (Isaiah 14:13-14; Ezekiel 28:13-17; Matthew 12:24-26; John 8:44; 12:31-32; II Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:1-3; 6:12-18; Revelation 12:9-10; 20:10) We believe that all angels, including Satan, were created by God, and that Satan, through pride and sinful ambition, rebelled against God, becoming the great adversary of God and His people. These spirit beings possess supernatural powers, but are limited by the permissive will of God. Satan, as leader of evil angels, demons, was defeated and judged at the cross of Jesus Christ, and his final destiny is everlasting punishment in the lake of fire, hell. 9. THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST (Matthew 16:18; 28:19-20; John 13:1-17; Acts 2:41-47; I Corinthians 11:17-34; I Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18) We believe that all believers from the day of Pentecost in Acts 2 until the return of Jesus Christ are members of the Church, the body of Christ, and that the visible manifestation on earth is local churches where believers assemble for teaching, fellowship, prayer, and observance of Christ s commands regarding baptism and communion. We believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and in remembering the night our Lord was with His disciples in the Upper Room by regularly observing the Lord s Supper. 10. THE GREAT COMMISSION (Matthew 9:36-38; 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47-48; Acts 1:8; 8:1, 4; Romans 10:13-15; I Corinthians 9:13-14) We believe that our Lord commanded us to preach the Gospel and to make disciples of all nations, and that every believer is to be a witness for Jesus Christ, trusting in the power of the Holy Spirit; and that we are responsible to pray for, support, and send missionaries into all the world. LAY COUNSELING MISSION STATEMENT As a loving church, every day we face the reality of how we effectively minister to the needs of a world full of hurting and broken people.
