Post-Pandemic Asian Christian Counseling Leadership Series # 4

Invitation to Register

The Asian Christian Counseling Association (ACCA) is pleased to invite you to register for our third monthly webinar on Post-Pandemic Asian Christian Counseling Leadership Series # 4 to be held on 31 Oct 2020 (the last Saturday of each month) at 11.00 am (Malaysia time).

 

As the Covid-19 pandemic has brought about drastic changes to every aspect of life, the objective of the series is to utilize this uncertain time of flux as a window of opportunity for us to explore and shape the unique direction of Christian counseling in Asia so that we are intentionally Kingdom-minded and missional in our teaching, practice and ministry.

 

In this respect, the vision and mission of ACCA is to promote and realize Christian counseling throughout Asia not just as a clinical practice but also a ministry to the community, integrating psychology, theology, spirituality and missions, to manifest spiritual and professional maturity in what we do. 

 

The ACCA hour-long Webinar on Leadership Series # 4 is entitled Mental Health as Mission in Asia: A Means of the Gospel Through Hope & Healing. The topics to be covered include the following:

a)     The Unique Role of Counseling

b)     Defining the Mission of God

c)     The Challenges to Mental Health as Mission in Asia

d)     The Call to Mental Health as Mission
