ABOUT THE CERTIFICATION
The Graduate Certification in Christian Counseling is designed for all who have an interest in learning how to counsel those who are facing serious life-altering crises, pain, suffering, death, dying, losses, and all other aspects of the “human condition” that are so challenging to navigate.
Students will learn how to do Christian Counseling using Scripture, Psychology, and Clinical Interventions that are appropriate. Church leaders will gain confidence in counseling the various specific areas that spiritual leaders are often called upon to perform. Chaplains, hospice caregivers, hospital caregivers, youth ministers, associate ministers, family life ministers, marriage and family therapists, clinical counselors, and all others who are interested in spiritual Counseling are welcome to apply to this program.
This Certification is an 18-hour “stand-alone” credential but will transfer into Harbinger’s Master’s Degree, which requires an additional 18-hours of graduate study.
