Biblical Counseling Resources

Pastors are increasingly pointing the church to the Bible to answer the problems of daily life. In its most basic sense, biblical counseling is discipleship. Here are some of the best websites that offer information about biblical counseling.

National Association of Nouthetic Counselors

NANC exists to help pastors and those who would be ministers of the Word of God by providing help and encouragement. NANC is first and foremost a certifying organization. The certifying process is rigorous but attainable by even the busiest pastor. The process consists of the completion of an approved training course, the completion of both a theological and a practical counseling test, several references, and a minimum of 50 hours of supervised counseling experience. NANC also offers many helpful publications and free articles on their website.

Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation

(CCEF) mission is to see hearts transformed as God applies his Word to the problems of life. We have seen – thousands of times – that, in Christ, God truly has given his people “everything we need for life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3). God’s grace, God’s Word, and God’s people are what Christians need for personal change, spiritual growth, and help with the pressing problems of life. Their website offers information about their training programs, publications, the Journal of Biblical Counseling and more.

The Institute for Nouthetic Studies

This site is devoted to nouthetic counseling, and featuring some of Jay Adams’s written works.
