Faith Global Ministries announced plans to produce the Faith Bibilcal Counseling Ministry’s DVD series on Biblical Counseling Observation with language subtitles. David Selvey, director of Faith Global Ministries, made the announcement in the Annual FGM dinner last night. Each February Faith Baptist Church hosts a Biblical Counselor Training Conference on its campus in Lafayette, Indiana. The conference hosts aroudn 1,600 attendees from around the world.
Faith Biblical Counseling Ministries has produced a set of 12 DVDs, each depicting a one hour mock-counseling session to provide opportunities forcounselor trainees to see what happens in the counseling room. This has been an invaluable tool for helping to prepare trainees to counsel.
Faith Global Ministries has begun work to translate these DVDs into Spanish, Portuguese, French, Romanian and Czech and provide a language selectable subtitle for the benefit of those who speak languages other than English. A proof of concept video clip is available on YouTube.
At the FGM dinner last night, Sacha Mendes, a biblical counselor, trainer and pastor in Brazil, said that having these DVDs subtitled in Portuguese is a much needed part of the training process in Brazil. FGM director, David Selvey said, “This is a big project, but like-minded people and churches are sharing resources to get the job done.”
