What Others Are Saying About The Helping Series
Rev. Aaron Soto, Apostolic Truth Church, Appleton, Wisconsin The Pastoral Helping Series by Rev. Robert Kurz has been a “go to” resource for our pastoral team at Apostolic Truth Church. The DVD’s and workbooks are frequently used to supplement family or marriage counseling issues. This is an invaluable resource for pastors who value time, and are looking for biblical resources to promote a healthy congregation.
Rev. James Lumpkin, Word Aflame Fellowship Church – Little Rock, Arkansas “Healthy families lead to healthy, growing churches. In order to minister effectively to a culture marked by dysfunction, abuse, shame, and addictions, pastors need tools - apostolic tools. Bob Kurz offers those tools through “The Helping Series.” His material provides Bible-based, practical answers to meet an escalating challenge in the church. As a husband and father I have benefited from the counsel of Bob Kurz both personally, and as a pastor. I highly recommend his materials. You, your family and congregation will benefit from his ministry.”
