Author Interview with Robert Kellemen

Promo ContentQ & A with Bob Kellemen

As part of our BCC vision, we want to help you to get to know gifted Chris­t­ian authors and their books. This week we’re high­light­ing Bob Kelle­men as he shares about his new book, Equip­ping Coun­selors for Your Church.

BCC: “Bob, what’s the big idea behind Equip­ping Coun­selors for Your Church? What would you like read­ers to take away from the book?”

BK: “I had two assump­tions as I wrote the book. First, pas­tors, coun­selors, and edu­ca­tors are pas­sion­ate about equip­ping God’s peo­ple for every-member min­istry as bib­li­cal coun­selors. Sec­ond, they are tired of see­ing great effort expended on ‘pro­grams’ that don’t launch, don’t last, or don’t result in leav­ing a legacy of lov­ing lead­ers. So am I.  (Read More)

Promo ContentGrow­ing Up Christian

Many teens are active in church youth pro­grams, yet drop out of church later in life and never return. Other young adults rest on the mer­its of their par­ents’ faith with­out ever expe­ri­enc­ing their own rela­tion­ship with Jesus Christ. In this book the authors seek to help teenagers who have grown up in Chris­t­ian homes by remind­ing them of the bless­ings of grow­ing up in a Chris­t­ian home, warn­ing them of some of the dan­gers they face, pro­vid­ing prac­ti­cal sug­ges­tions for avoid­ing these dan­gers, and urg­ing them to think and live in a way that pleases God.

“This book is one that can shake teenagers and par­ents out of a false sense of safety and ignite a much-needed spir­i­tual pas­sion”Tedd Tripp
