Christ-Centered Counseling Skills
Our program combines academic studies and practical training to equip you to better help those in need—whatever your calling. Our MAC graduates provide Christ-centered care as informal or professional counselors.
We have partnered with the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF), a pioneer in biblical counseling who brings 50 years of leadership and experience in the field. Together we've designed a unique curriculum that integrates theology and counseling studies. Engage diverse and experienced students to discuss, learn, and grow.
At a Glance
In an online community of peers and professors, you will begin studies across topics including introductions to biblical studies, growth and change in the Christian life, counseling models and process, and more. Courses consist of lectures and readings, regular small-group discussions, and assignments designed to grow you in life and ministry.
You will continue learning as you move into advanced topics that apply earlier classes and concepts to more complex issues in theology, ministry, and counseling. Deepen your relationships with your peer community and practice applying the principles of biblical counseling in your local ministry. You will also gain more practical experience in real-world ministry under the guidance of a mentor in your local area.
