Counseling in the Local Church Course Description

Biblical counseling – is it just for the pastors and elders? Or for trained professionals? What does it look like to restore counseling to the local church? The purpose of this course is to:
  • to broaden students’ understanding of counseling to include all relationships
  • to build a thoroughly biblical understanding of the local church as a ministering community where everyone plays a part
  • to help students find their place of ministry within the context of the local church and to help others do the same
  • to see the importance of both public and private ministry of the Word and how they interrelate
  • to examine present ministry opportunities
Topics covered include a biblical foundation for private ministry of the Word; the role of community and relationships in the process of sanctification; developing a practical ecclesiology; and developing an eye for ministry opportunities such as conflict resolution, evangelism, and church discipline.

Students will watch lectures, read materials, and write papers at home, and then meet together on six Thursdays face-to-face as a cohort to discuss lecture content, readings, and other questions about how to do biblical counseling in the context of the local church. Come take advantage of this unique opportunity!

This course is taught at a graduate level, though you do not need any prior degrees to participate. The courses can be taken for credit, or they can be audited. Auditing is less expensive, but taking the courses for credit allows the Recitation Instructor to provide feedback on all assignments, which facilitates growth and understanding for each of the students. The tuition is $385 if taken for credit, and $300 if audited.
