INTRODUCING BIBLICAL COUNSELING AT TOWALIGA BAPTIST CHURCH IN JACKSON, GEORGIA Jason Leonard Sanders, DMin The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2019 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Stuart W. Scott This project examined the role of biblical counseling in Towaliga Baptist Church, a small, rural church. The specific make-up of Towaliga Baptist Church was outlined in chapter 1. In chapter 2, heavy emphasis was placed on the supremacy of Scripture being more than a doctrinal distinctive but a reason for all believers to confidently offer biblical counsel to those in need. Chapter 3 demonstrates how all believers have the gift of God the Holy Spirit and are therefore competent to counsel. In chapter 4, common issues that typically bring people into a counselor’s office are addressed, offering specific examples of how Scripture speaks to sin and human emotional suffering. Chapter 5 includes my reflections on the project.
