Suggested Resources to Care Biblically and Compassionately

The Reproductive Loss Network strives to build strong partnerships and provide biblical resources to expand care to those grieving. We have curated this page with you in mind, hoping we can encourage and equip you in the ministries you provide.

We are grateful for you and the larger community of helpers who make it possible to refer and refresh one another as we care for those who grieve. We can’t be everything to everyone, but as one body, we can increase our support efforts and offer biblical hope and healing.

If you have a resource we have missed, we would love for you to let us know.

Please note we cannot account for all the theological views and beliefs of each organization as they may unknowingly change.
Upon time of listing, we considered them life-affirming resources who provide biblical grief care.

Association of Christian Biblical Counselors - ACBC

Speaking the Truth in Love

We seek to strengthen the Church to speak the truth in love by providing a quality training and certification process, a global network of like-minded individuals and institutions, and a source of practical and biblical resources for the Church.

In short, we seek to bring biblical solutions for the problems people face, upholding that the method God has given to do this is truth in love.

Biblical Counseling Coalition - BCC

The BCC exists to multiply the ministry of the biblical counseling movement by strengthening churches, para-church organizations, and educational institutions through promoting unity and excellence in biblical counseling.

Our mission is to foster collaborative relationships and to provide robust, relevant biblical resources that equip the Body of Christ to change lives with Christ’s changeless truth through the personal ministry of the Word.

All that we do flows from our calling to empower the biblical counseling movement to equip people to love God and one another in Christ-centered ways.

We pursue this purpose by organizing our thinking around one central question: “What does it mean to counsel in the grace and truth of Christ?”

Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation - CCEF

Restoring Christ to counseling and counseling to the church

The aim of CCEF is to consider how caring for people’s souls can be increasingly wise and helpful. This is sometimes identified as biblical counseling. We intend this not as a protected trademark but as a body of work to which many contribute. It describes the troubles we face, how those troubles are experienced, how God speaks to us during those troubles, and how we help each other with wisdom and love.

The Institute for Biblical Counseling & Discipleship - IBCD

IBCD (The Institute for Biblical Counseling & Discipleship) exists to strengthen churches in one another care.

We serve organizations and individuals who share a passion to see believers equipped through life’s struggles with the Word of God. We do this by offering training through our Care & Discipleship program, as well as offering counseling resources, events and free resources that are helpful to anyone interested in learning how to better help others.

Truth in Love Biblical Counseling - TILBCC

We are a dedicated team of compassionate men and women who are deeply committed to helping individuals find healing, hope, and transformation through the power of Jesus Christ and applying His principles for life.

At our core, we believe that the Word of God is sufficient for everything regarding life and faith and that it provides timeless wisdom and guidance that can bring about profound change in people’s lives.
