What Will You Learn in Our Bible Degree in Christian Counseling?
In addition to general education courses, this degree program consists of 2 main sections: Bible courses and Christian counseling courses. The unique blend of courses that this program offers can help you develop new skills as you build on skills you already have.
In the Bible section of this degree, you will study the Pentateuch, historical and poetical books of the Old Testament, and the prophets. You will also study the Gospels, Acts, the Pauline epistles, and the general epistles. In addition to a methodical study of Scripture, you will explore Daniel-Revelation, Old and New Testament backgrounds, and research and writing for religious disciplines. To round out the Bible section, you’ll take courses in the practical teaching of Scripture and biblical theology – then take a capstone course that will test your knowledge of the curriculum.
In the Christian counseling courses, you’ll combine your knowledge of the Bible with principles necessary to shepherd others through trying times. Just as it is important to share God’s Word with people, it’s also important to listen. Our Christian counseling courses can teach you various foundational counseling theories, empathetic listening, and how to use Scripture to lead your clients in a direction that is pleasing to the Lord.
