Center Counseling


Welcome to our first GenFree Intensive. Get ready for two days of training and inspiration as we come alongside youth ministers, leaders, counselors, and families to help young people find their identities and live free in Christ. If you work with, or minister to, teens and young adults ages 13-25, this is for you.

Take advantage of training and GenFree resources as we tackle topics including:
• Building relationships and alliances with Gen Z
• Taking young generations through the personal Steps to Freedom
• Guiding teens and young adults through a Stronghold Buster
• Adapting and creating resources for Gen Z
• Navigating relationships with parents and family systems
• Creating a network of community advocates and encouragers for young generations
• Addressing the role of sexuality in the context of spiritual formation and individual identity

There is pre-requisite training needed for this event as the materials covered will build upon the knowledge gained from studying the materials in CFM 301 and CFM 302. CFM 301 helps you understand 21st Century Teens, providing foundational discipleship counseling theory and practical training. CFM 302 covers Identity Based Spiritual Formation and will provide you the tools you need to build more than just “good” or “moral” teens. You can sign up & pay for those courses here:


$99 per person for the Intensive (includes snacks and lunch both days and a celebration dinner). Participants still need to cover cost of airfare/travel, lodging, and transportation, and have gone through CFM 301 & CFM 302 (see above). Registration is currently closed for this event.
