Our purpose is to help you to identify and realize your call to become a Christian counselor. The education offered here is based on God's Word, His Creation and a dependency upon the Holy Sirit. The curriculum is designed to assist you to become a qualified and credentialed Christian counselor who is pleasing to God and extremely effective in helping others. Our individual program is committed to providing a completely Christian method of helping God's children.
Our students arrive from a variety of backgrounds., all seeking to be better equipped to truly help others. Pastors, secular counselors and those who have been called to become Professional Christian Conselors are among the many who are led to christian counseling. Whatever your goal, you will find highly-dedicated, caring Christians eager to help you to achieve your goals, and an abundance of high-quality resources that will meet your needs and improve your ability to help others.
When a problem arises with an object that man has created, such as a computer, we take it to the one(s) who made it, in order to fix the problem. Seeking God, the One who made us, is the answer to man's problems. (Psalm 139:13 For thou hast possessed (created) my reigns(life): thou hast covered me in my mother's womb." Emphasis added.
Abundant Life Christian Conseling Center will help you to become a Christian counselor by teaching you a Biblically sound, highly effective and simple to master method of counseling. This method is Creation Therapy or Temperament Therapy. It is based on discovering the inborn termperament God provides for each of us, when we are created. This discovery can often hold the key to helping people to identify God's solutions to their problems.
The most important requirement for becoming a Christian counselor is a desire in your heart to help others. Although not everyone who applies is admitted, the basic requirements are having a servant's heart, a willingness to help others, and a call from God. For those students, God will make a path for you to achieve this desire. This is your opportunity to become a part of the growing international Christian Counseling ministry.
There is an ever-expanding need for loving, caring and godly Christian Couselors in America and around the world. Almost everyone, who contacts our office for training, is discovering that Bible-based Christian Counseling is more consistent with the values each believer holds dear as opposed to secular beliefs propigated through Christians trained in secular counseling. Many Christians, doing secular counsleing, report only doing so to charge insurance companies for reimbursement or to get paid. How tragic! Money must never be the motive for helping others!
While money is not the motive, Professional Christian Conselors do have the potential to earn an above average income as a result of the increasing demand for their services and the shortage of trained professionals. God promises to meet our needs while we follow His course. Christian counseling is truly a ministry: If your only motivation for becoming a Christian counselor is a source of income, this is not for you. Your rewards are proportional to the value of the service you provide.
Accumulating excessive debt while gaining certification or a degree may not be God's best. Although your courses are of high quality, they are very modestly priced. With a convenient automatic payment plan, anyone can acquire an education in Christian Counseling. It is a blessing to graduate with a Master's Degree or a PhD degree without a mountain of debt.
People from all walks of life seek counsel from a minister or someone called into a Ministry of Couseling. In 1979 a s survey by Richard Kulka at the University of Michigan, showed that clergy lead the list of physicians, psychiatrists, social workers, and others to whom troubled people turn. Today, with the growing need for cost cutting in medical insurance, Obama Care restrictions and slowing ecomomic recovery, people are seeking help from the clergy or those called in a Ministry of Counsleing as never before. The Pastoral or Christian Counselor can provide counseling much cheaper and in some cases free as well as getting to the root quicker and resolving the issues. Also, those called in a Ministry of Counseling, can share the gospel message of salvation in a setting most would not consider as important.
