Starting New National Associations of Christian Counseling

ACCA wishes to connect with key Christian counselors who are keen to start a new National Association of Christian Counseling in their own country in Asia where such associations are not yet existent.

These counselors will be invited to a consultation with other key leaders of existing national bodies to learn on the start-up process and good practices that they can adapt for their own countries.

Once we have adequate participants, we will arrange for the consultation to be held over one or two days  at a date that suits everyone. Hotel accommodation and meals will be provided but participants will have to pay for their own travelling costs.

Interested parties are to write to president1@asiancca.org for further details.
