Our relational commissioning process is the way we accomplish our mission of mobilizing as many Christians as possible to connect the “Hope of the Gospel With the Heart of Addiction.” The threefold purpose of TAC (The Addiction Connection) is found in our acronym:
T = TRAINING is provided for persons seeking to study what the Bible has to say about “addictions.” This training is designed to strengthen one’s personal walk with Christ and can be additionally utilized as foundational teaching in the pursuit of Commissioning with TAC as a CABC (Commissioned Addictions Biblical Counselor).
A = ADDICTION RESOURCES are listed for those seeking to find genuinely biblical programs (both residential and non-residential), and individual addictioins biblical counselors. We also point you in the direction of sound biblical publications on our resource page. TAC strives to uphold truth so we evaluate residential programs, church programs, and addictions biblical counselors. TAC leadership evaluates the underlying philosophy of counseling being used to determine its approach to be genuinely biblical in both words and actions (see James 1:22).
C = COMMISSIONING rather than “certification”. Our process is intentionally a relational disciple-making process in order to best assess and strengthen those who are seeking to be genuinely biblical in their approach to addiction. While education and academics have a part, commissioning is more about relationship and multiplication.
The Addiction Connection is a ministry outreach of Truth in Love (TIL) Ministries www.histruthinlove.org and operates under the oversight of the TIL Board of Directors and TIL Founder Dr. Mark E. Shaw.
We want to meet you. Our desire is to help as many Christians as possible offer biblical hope and help to those struggling with life-dominating “addictions.” Let’s join together in this vital Kingdom work of “Connecting the Hope of the Gospel With the Heart of Addiction.”
