The first Basic Youth Conflicts Seminar was taught in 1965 as a course at Wheaton College and Graduate School. Forty-five college students, pastors, youth directors, and teachers enrolled. It grew beyond what anyone expected. Within six years, attendance at the seminar had multiplied dramatically. In 1971, a third of a million youth and adults attended the seminar. To date, over 2.5 million people have gone through the 32-hour course. What has caused this phenomenal growth?
People from all backgrounds come to the seminar because their pastors, doctors, lawyers, relatives, or friends tell them that their lives, marriages, and families have been transformed by what they learned when they attended the seminar. Many have stated that they would gladly trade their four years of college or seminary for that one week of training.
What is so transformational about the contents of the seminar? I now understand that the seminar is effective because it explains several of the commands of Christ and how to apply them to daily living. Here are the commands of Christ that are featured in the Basic Seminar.
The seminar message has explained these seven commands of Christ—their rich foundations in the Old Testament as well as their practical application in the New Testament. The personal illustrations that are given throughout the seminar provide additional insight on how these commands can be applied to daily living.
If the Basic Seminar has helped so many people by simply explaining seven commands of Christ, how much more powerful could a study of all 49 general commands be?

“No price could be placed on what I learned at the Basic Seminar. It changed my life, saved my marriage, gave us unity as a family, and prepared me for my work as a pastor.”
—Pastor Ken Pierpont
“The impact of the Basic Seminar began for me when my parents took me as a teenager in 1970. I applied the principles to my life, marriage, and our family of eight children. It is a joy to see our two married daughters and their husbands teaching their children these same Biblical truths.”
