Andy Redford on Training at CCTC!

Christian Counseling & Training Center, Inc. (CCTC) is an inter-denominational, non-profit ministry dedicated to bringing honor and glory to God by serving the Body of Christ and assisting local churches. CCTC use Biblical principles to teach, train, and counsel. CCTC encourages people to use of Scripture to resolve personal and inter-personal problems and to be available to help others to apply these truths in their lives.

We believe God's Word has relevant answers to the issues we face in daily living. We study the character of God, His holiness, His grace, and purpose for life. As we examine intimate relationships, we look at the emotions of anger, fear, and guilt within the context of the Biblical concept of love. We evaluate actions and the motives behind those actions and explore how change takes place.
