What You Will Learn

The Licensed Biblical Therapist program takes you from the foundations in Christian Counseling through Advanced Christian Counseling, equipping you to offer formal counseling through your church or to the public as a ministry. You will learn the different forms of counseling and how to incorporate counseling on a three-fold approach of spirit, soul, and body. Included in this program is our G.O.D.14 class.  You will learn the dynamics of addiction, that being with substance abuse or addictive lifestyles without drugs and how to help free others from that bondage.

 Deliverance & Inner Healing covers a third of Jesus's ministry.  As a Certified Biblical Therapist you will gain understanding to help others find the freedom Jesus taught.  Understanding how to guide others through crisis and traumatic situations is incorporated into this program. Christians must walk by the highest standard of ethics.  Ministerial Ethics will challenge, as well as encourage spiritual ethics beyond a secular view. As you gain your license in Biblical Therapy, Doctrinal Foundations will help you articulate what you believe and be able to back it up with scripture.
