On this episode of This vs. That, we talk with Joe Keller about confronting versus covering in love. Joe has been in ministry and leadership development for over 20 years and currently serves as the executive pastor at Grace Baptist Church in Santa Clarita, California. We define what it means to confront in love, and how it involves living in a way that promotes and communicates the truth of God's word. We also discuss the importance of motivation and heart when it comes to confronting others. Joe shares the principle of bearing up under small offenses and when it is necessary to confront patterns of sin that are hurting others or the testimony of the gospel. Join us for a thoughtful conversation about how to love and confront well.

Trauma and Abuse. It’s in the headlines. It’s on social media. It’s also in our churches. We live in a fallen world where Christians are not immune from the effects of sin and brokenness. How can we love the hurting and vulnerable in our ministries well?

The Evangelical Council for Abuse Prevention and Gospel Care Collective are partnering together to help equip ministry leaders to respond to this problem. At TGC23 in Indianapolis, we will host a panel event aiming to provide a biblical perspective on these issues, with a focus on the role of the church in healing trauma and preventing abuse. Join us as we hear from long-time practitioners in ministry and counseling, including Jennifer Greenberg, Eliza Huie, Jason Kovacs, Mike Kruger, and Dr. Jeremy Pierre, to make the church a safer place for vulnerable people.

At Anchored Hope, we're committed to excellence. We believe that compassionate, biblically grounded, clinically informed counseling shouldn't be hard to find. That's why we are also committed to affordability and accessibility. To do this as a nonprofit, however, requires us to lock arms with people who care about the mental, emotional, and spiritual crisis happening all around us.

If this is you, we need your help. This month we launched a brand new giving campaign and we are seeking to find a hundred people willing to give so that others might live. Whether it's $5 or a thousand dollars, we need your help. These proceeds go to men, women and families, pastors, ministry leaders, and missionaries across the globe in need of counseling care today.

In order to join us, go to ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠anchoredhope.co/give⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ and join the cause for accessible, affordable, and excellent counseling care today.

While our funds go to people in need of counseling and to support the growing ministry of Ingrid Hope, we have two specific financial needs. One is to serve ministry leaders in a foreign country that are caring and doing outreach to trafficked victims. The other need is a request to help and financing counseling for military families across the nation.

If you would like more information about these two opportunities to give, send us an email@officebiblicalcounseling.online
