Post-Pandemic Asian Christian Counseling Leadership Series #1

The Asian Christian Counseling Association (ACCA) is pleased to invite you to register for our first monthly webinar on Post-Pandemic Asian Christian Counseling Leadership Series #1 to be held on 25 July 2020 (the last Saturday of each month) at 11.00 am (Malaysia time).

As the Covid-19 pandemic has brought about drastic changes to every aspect of life, the objective of the series is to utilize this uncertain time of flux as a window of opportunity for us to explore and shape the unique direction of Christian counseling in Asia so that we are intentionally Kingdom-minded and missional in our teaching, practice and ministry.

In this respect, the vision and mission of ACCA is to promote and realize Christian counseling throughout Asia not just as a clinical practice but also a ministry to the community, integrating psychology, theology, spirituality and missions, to manifest spiritual and professional maturity in what we do.

I intend to kick off the series with an overview on the following aspects of Christian leadership:

a)     What are the principles of Christian leadership relevant to Asian Christian counselors?

b)    What good the pandemic lockdown would have brought out in us as Asian Christian counselors?

c)     What leadership qualities ought we as Asian Christian counselors pursue following the pandemic?

d)    What are the demands for good Christian leadership in Asian Christian counselors?

e)    What is the purpose for good Christian leadership in Asian Christian counselors?
