The Accelerated Counseling program is designed for students with a strong academic background able and motivated to study at the graduate level.

People need to know
The pain and scars that often come from living in a sinful world can take their toll. Many people struggle to break free from the emotional and spiritual weight that sin and suffering cause. God’s word is sufficient to meet our needs.

People need to know; they need your counsel.
