What to Expect at the March Conference

Hi All!
I want to encourage you to consider spreading the word to your circles of influence about our March conference. I am excited to have three tracks to offer, so there is truly something for everyone.

Dr. Stuart Scott has been very influential in Janell’s and my counseling training over the years and we are very excited to have him come to Bethany Community Church. Dr. Scott will be teaching in this track along with our own Pastor Daniel and Bethany Baptist Senior Pastor Ritch Boerckel. This track is relevant for anyone who is married, is considering marriage and for anyone seeking to grow in shepherding married couples.

Dr. Stuart Scott teaches in the graduate program of biblical counseling at The Master’s University in Santa Clarita, CA. He has over forty years of experience in counseling and pastoral ministry. He is a Fellow with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. Stuart is an author as well and is married to his wife Zondra and they have two grown children and two grandchildren.

Dr. Scott has authored many resources, including: "The Exemplary Husband"; "From Pride to Humility"; "Communication and Conflict Resolution"; "Anger, Fear and Anxiety"; "Biblical Manhood, Leadership and Decision Making"; "The Faithful Parent: A Biblical Guide for Parenting" (co-authored with Martha Peace); and most recently, "Killing Sinful Habits: Conquering Sin with Radical Faith" (co-authored with his wife, Zondra Scott). He has contributed to "Think Biblically", "Christianity and Counseling - Five Approaches" and co-edited "Counseling the Hard Cases".

Scott O'Malley is coming again for a series designed for single adults, high school age and up. This series developed in Scott's mind as he drove home from our 2018 conference. He processed conversations with our youth and some parents and was so excited about the theme that he contacted me and asked if he could come back this year. Scott is Campus Director of Twelve Stones Ministries, Inc. in Helmsburg, IN. Scott has served at TS since July, 2007.  He has worked with troubled children and families in a variety of settings for over 15 years. Scott has a Master of Arts Degree in Biblical Counseling from the Master’s University, CA. He and his wife Tara were married in 1992 and have eight children.

This series will be taught by Bethany Biblical Counseling Ministry staff and volunteer counselors. This track covers themes that are essential for anyone involved in intentional ministry, from parenting, to personal discipleship, to care group leaders, to Sunday School teachers to general biblical counseling. If you have an interest in learning about your own spiritual growth and sanctification or if you want to become more effective in encouraging others in their walk with the Lord, this track will be worth your time.

Please consider inviting your family, friends and neighbors to our conference. We are praying that this year's conference would have a regional impact for the Kingdom of God that would reach far beyond Bethany and the community of Washington.
