“I am so grateful that I now have a trusted partner in ministry through BCTM. God has graciously provided biblically-trained counselors that care for our members in the same way I would – and deliver the same gospel-centered message that I preach from the pulpit.” – Reverend Carl Kalbercamp, Jr., Senior Pastor, Pear Orchard Presbyterian Church


“In my opinion, BCTM is an excellent extension of the pastoral arm in the local church that we’re not adequately equipped to provide. We are humbled and grateful to have them alongside us in our effort to counsel and love Christ’s Church with biblical instruction and grace.” – Randy Rhea, Senior Pastor, Madison Heights Church


“I am so thankful the Lord led David Elston to bring BCTM to Shreveport. They will be a tremendous biblical counseling resource for our churches and our community.” – J. Tracy Graham, Senior Pastor, Norris Ferry Community Church


“We are excited to partner with BCTM to see lives restored through the gospel in the context of the local church.” – Kevin Shoemaker, Pastor, Redeemer Church, Starkville MS


“Having known Chase Maxey for years, I consider him a close friend, a co-laborer in biblical counseling, and a dear brother in Christ. As colleagues at CCEF, I saw the Lord grow Chase’s passion for loving people well in this fallen world. My soul is deeply encouraged by how our Father is graciously using Biblical Counseling & Training Ministries (BCTM) to further His kingdom by pointing hurting people to Christ – the only Hope for our weary souls.” – -Dr. Tim Lane, Founder and President of the Institute for Pastoral Care and Tim Lane & Associates; Author of Living Without Worry: How to Replace Anxiety with Peace; Co-author of How People Change and Relationships: A Mess Worth Making.


“The ministry of BCTM is a true partnership with the local church. Their biblical, gospel-centered approach to counseling has been a vital part of discipleship in our own local church context.” – Miles Van Pelt, Elder, Grace Reformed Church; Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages, RTS Jackson


“As we considered biblical counseling resources for our church body, we were compelled by BCTM’s view of the local church, vision for Mississippi and by multiple positive references. We are enthusiastic about supporting BCTM as they help us meet an important need in our area.” – Bill Heard, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Starkville, MS


The ministry of BCTM is a blessing to Grace Presbyterian Church and to the wider community of Shreveport-Bossier. It is refreshing to have a trusted listener who navigates life and relationships with a Christ-shaped message of hope and healing. David Elston is a bright and perceptive counselor and a gifted communicator of Biblical truth. Grace Presbyterian is part of the BCTM Church Partnership program which offers a wide range of resources, including: leadership training, Biblical counseling courses, and a trusted counseling referral for ongoing needs within the church body.  I highly recommend getting connected with David and BCTM Shreveport to find out how he can partner with you for the benefit of your church body and others in your community.” – Quinn Hill, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Shreveport, La
