Your Family God’s Way

Pretoria

Wayne Mack
Wayne MackDirector ACBC Africa

For more than 40 years I have personally been involved in teaching others to do biblical counselling at Christian Counselling and Educational Foundation (CCEF). the Westminster Theological Seminary, Biblical Seminary and The Master’s University and Seminary. During that whole period of time I have also been doing extensive counselling. By this time I have certainly counselled thousands of people. Of all the thousands of hours of counselling I have done I think I can say that well over 60% of the counselling I have done has involved counselling marriages and families. And I am sure that most other biblical counsellors would say the same thing. Most of my counselling efforts have been with Christians who were having various problems in their marriages and families, but on occasion I have had people who were not Christians come for counselling and it has been my joy to present the Gospel to them and then give biblical, practical counsel to them that would help them to resolve their marital, family difficulties. Helping Christians to solve their marriage and family problems or prevent them from occurring are extremely important issues for our churches and church members and attenders. Consequently, we have decided to focus the teaching in our August and October ACBC conferences for 2018 on key issues that will assist individuals and churches, pastors and parishioners to develop the kinds of marriages and families that will bring great joy to people so that they will have more biblical, joyful, personally satisfying and God glorifying marriages and families. We encourage you to register and attend and to also encourage others to do the same.

Dr Tedd and Margy Tripp
Dr Tedd and Margy Tripp

Tedd Tripp is the President of a non-profit organisation called Shepherding the Heart Ministries. Tedd has both developed and taught materials for this ministry and is known around the world for his best-selling child-rearing book, Shepherding a Child’s Heart, and as the presenter of Shepherding a Child’s Heart Ministries.

Tedd Tripp is Pastor Emeritus of Grace Fellowship Church in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, where he served from 1980 until 2012. Tedd was married to his wife, Margy, in 1968; they are parents of three adult children and 9 grandchildren. Tedd is also the author of A Parent’s Handbook for Shepherding a Child’s Heart, Hints for Parents, and with his wife, Margy, Instructing a Child’s Heart.

Dr. Tripp received his BA from Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, his M. Div from Philadelphia Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and his D. Min from Westminster Theological Seminary in Glenside, Pennsylvania.

Margy Tripp was born in 1945.  Margy grew up in a pastor’s home in western Pennsylvania, graduated from Nyack (Missionary) College, and was married to Tedd Tripp on June 8, 1968. She is a pastor’s (retired) wife. Tedd and Margy have three children, two sons and a daughter. All three are married to great spouses who Tedd and Margy regard as their own children. They have three beautiful granddaughters and six handsome grandsons!

In the seventies, Margy and Tedd and their children had an open home ministry. Many single people and some married couples lived with them in those troubled years when so many were “trying to find themselves.” They had many opportunities for ministering the gospel in that context but, by far, God’s higher purpose was to show them their sin and need to know Him and live in light of His glorious grace.

Margy and Tedd founded Immanuel Christian School in 1979 after home-schooling their children for one year.  Margy served as principal for seventeen years, teacher, teacher supervisor, curriculum director and board member in the early years of ICS.  She is now retired from school life except for work on the Curriculum Committee, and she is picking up projects that have been on hold for many years. Traveling with “Shepherding the Heart Ministry”, Bible studies and counseling at Grace Fellowship Church, writing, and speaking consume much of Margy’s time. Spending more time with their children and grandchildren is a special focus for Tedd and Margy as well.

Grace Fellowship Church and Immanuel Christian School have afforded Margy many opportunities for a ministry of counselling over the years as well as developing materials and studies for children, ladies and educators. Margy remarks, “God’s mercy in redeeming me from my rebellion to know fullness in Him energizes me to study His Word and share the joy and freedom of the gospel with others.”
