The counseling skills and knowledge gained from our certificate program fit with a professional model, but are also useful for pastors, church and lay leaders who want to improve their work within the church. In addition, small group leaders, educators, and pregnancy counseling volunteers have found these courses helpful. Mental health professionals seeking distinctly Christian and faith-based counseling skills may also wish to complete the certificate. There are no prerequisites for this program of study. All students are accepted. Students will be required to complete student exams with at least a 60.0 minimum passing score and/or submit written assignments as directed by instructors.
Courses can be applied toward a degree program of study. Students study at their own pace, but must submit at least one student exam or assignment every 30 days in order to maintain active status.
