 Open to all mature Christians whom God is calling to a counseling ministry.

This program takes training to the next level and gives more recognition. With a foundation laid from the Courses in Phase I, Phase II Courses provide for more opportunity of helping others as never before.

In Phase 1, the student will learn how to set up a successful counseling ministry, learn to counsel using the Creation Therapy model of counseling, and become a Certified Temperament Counselor. At this level, counselors can counsel in their church, as a chaplain, or any volunteer counseling setting. Donations can be accepted, but fees cannot be charged.

In Phase 2, the student will build upon Phase 1 by becoming licensed, commissioned or ordained, and certified in specific areas. At this level, the counselor can charge a fee while working anywhere that needs faith-based counseling.
