Our Mission

The purpose of the Department of Counseling Ministries is to develop biblically and theologically sound Christian counselors who are equipped to effectively impact people’s lives in a variety of ministry and professional counseling practice settings. Courses help students develop:

  • a biblical, theological, and psychological perspective for understanding people and the struggles they experience;
  • excellence in professional and interpersonal skills for the practice of counseling; and
  • effective strategies for transformational ministry in counseling.


Our professors are all seasoned counselors with a heart for helping people prepare to help people. Besides being able to integrate the Bible and modern psychology, our faculty have deep experience working with clients as well.
