Our Theme: Forgiveness

Most every Christian therapist or counselor is in his or her role because of some rough part of their personal story. Sometimes we are the ones who still can’t shake the pain that comes from being wronged, and as much as we know we should forgive, and want to forgive, and teach and preach forgiveness, we may still harbor some resentment. This experience is for all of us and those we love and lead.


Dr. Bruce and Toni Hebel

authors of Forgiving Forward and the creators of the Forgiving Forward training

The Forgiving Forward seminar is for you personally. It’s an opportunity to focus on Heaven’s Forgiveness Protocols and how to accurately apply them. This message will provide you with the tools to receive freedom from the torment you experience because of past wounds. Using expositional teaching from Scripture and practical examples of changed lives, Dr. Bruce Hebel will teach you the Protocols that have liberated individuals, restored marriages, reunited families, and unified congregations all over the world. Learn more about Bruce and Toni and their ministry by clicking on their names above.

Also, you will be equipped on this weekend for more effective service.

We will also receive the Forgiving Forward Coaching Intensive course, a prerequisite to become a certified Forgiving Forward coach. In this intensive training, the you will receive the tools and skills needed to join the team as a certified coach.

A weekend for you. A weekend of equipping as well. Plan on it.
