do we offer?
Living: His Perspective
“Perspective” Seminar is designed to help people discover who Jesus is and
who we are created to be. Because we often misunderstand our behavior and
problems, in these presentations we look at our actions, why we act the way we
do, and most importantly the One who sets us free. Topics
- Understanding Yourself
- Personality Issues
- Life on the Inside, Life on the Outside
- Marriage and Relationships
- Life with God
This seminar can be presented in a variety of formats depending upon a
group’s needs and desires. A full 8 – 10 hour seminar can be given, or each
session's length and content can be tailored to specific situations (marriage,
men’s or women’s groups, youth, etc.).

Living: His Perspective - In-Depth
The “In-Depth Perspective” Seminar fine-tunes the
message presented in the basic “Perspective” Seminar through interactive
lectures. Each presentation may include intensive small group time where
participants personalize the message and examine their own issues to more fully
discern how Jesus is working in their lives. This seminar usually runs 24 to 32 hours in duration and
works well in a series of daily meetings or as a retreat. The “Perspective”
Seminar is a pre-requisite.

Discipleship Training Path. Scroll down to learn more.
Living Covenant Ministries International offers
individual discipleship counseling using the Abiding Life Ministries' counseling
model developed by Dr. C. Michael Wells. In discipleship counseling, we hold
that the answers to life’s problems are not found in psychology, knowledge, or
self-effort which requires that an individual learn more and exert greater
amounts of effort to fix an issue. The
answers to our struggles are not found at our feet, but at the feet of the
person of Jesus Christ, whose love and life exceed all boundaries –
educational, physical, denominational, cultural, geographic, etc.
While most believers know this to be the truth, they struggle to experience it
for themselves and end up feeling frustrated, hopeless, and desperate.
Our goal is to walk with people through their misery to find Jesus. We
look at who God created them to be, what life has created in them, and how these
things affect their everyday lives. Our approach is not based in psychological
methods that offer the false hope of a quick and simple one-time fix, but is
focused solely upon Christ and measured by three statements:
Christ’s power must be evident. Advice that can be carried out by human effort
and implemented without Him as the source does not lead to ultimate victory.
victory stands alone in Christ’s finished work and all that He has done and is
doing on behalf of the defeated.
resolution to problems will not be accomplished in a relatively short time. This
does NOT necessarily mean that intense long-term counseling is required but that
coming to wholeness is a process of learning how to depend upon Christ moment by
Jesus has something to say to us in and through all
our problems, whether sin issues, addictions, depression, marriage and family
issues, or other struggles of life. In
Christ-centered counseling you do not get what you pay for; you get what He paid

This path is not only for those who want to counsel formally. Everyone
can benefit and grow by participating. You will learn much about yourself,
and better understand those you interact with at home, school, church, work, and
in your community. You can be a discipler no matter your walk of
life! This training path brings depth and insight into all relationships
but especially our relationship with Christ.
The most effective counselors are those who disciple from their own walks
with Jesus rather than from concepts about
a walk with Jesus. Through a 5-segment training series, we help participants
more fully recognize what Jesus has done in their own lives, then equip them
with tools to verbally and visually express how Jesus is real and practical in
all of life.

Using a more traditional approach, we look intently at scripture and expound
upon the God’s word. Scripture is permeated with the message that Jesus is our
sufficiency and our stability. The very essence of the Christian life is that He
alone embodies all that we are looking for. This discipleship message can be
shared through spiritual renewal meetings, pulpit supply, evangelistic
