2018 Annual Conference: “Does the Bible Really Speak to …?”

Bible believing Christians have great confidence in God’s Word, especially when it comes to getting to heaven. When people want to know about eternal life, we are quick to happily open our Bibles and provide clear verses that bring hope and direction toward reaching that goal. It is our book with the answers!

Yet, it is amazing to me that when Christians want answers for themselves or others about this life’s problems, they have little to no confidence. Yet, the Bible itself claims to have ALL the answers we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4).

Does the Bible really speak to depression? Anger? Anxiety? Gender confusion? Demoniac activity? Church conflicts? Hoarding? Hypersexualization? Difficult Marriages? You bet! It is sufficient and robust. It is all we need to counsel all non-organic problems!

George and Eileen Scipione and BCI’s roster of trained counseling speakers will offer hope and direction. If you have trouble trusting the scriptures with today’s problems, don’t miss this conference!

Join us on May 4th and 5th. Everyone is welcome to hear what God says about issues that trouble us all. This is not just for counselors; it is for all of us!

Rev. Joe Propri, Director, BCI

PLENARIES (by George Scipione)

  1. How Did We Get Here? 
    We will examine how Satan perverted a whole country into accepting a lie about sexuality. We need to know this in order to counter it with the truth of the gospel which will lead to purity.
  2. Gender Bending and Confusion 
    We need to know the lies behind this confusion so we can give Biblically correct answers to a confused culture and individuals to whom we minister. Sexual identity is a sub-set of identity in general.
  3. The Cult of Gay Christianity and Your Response
    We need biblical answers in general for the LGBTQ community. But, we also need biblical answers in particular for the cultic use of Scripture in the Gay Christian movement. As with other Christian heresies, we need to kindly show how they twist the Scriptures to their own destruction so that God might grant them repentance unto life.

Women Only Plenary -Held during George’s 2nd Plenary (Eileen Scipione)

  1. Ministering to Those Who Suffer from Sexual Abuse, Harassment and Assault.
    Victory in Christ is the goal for any counselee, including those sexually abused. Eileen will cover the causes, the signs of abuse to watch for (physical, behavioral, emotional, spiritual) and the counseling insights from which you will benefit. – WOMEN ONLY
