Master of Arts in Counseling

Christian counselors are the professionals that people turn to for guidance, support, and direction; counselors are lights in a dark and fallen world. In many cases God has gifted these counselors with the spiritual gifts of exhortation, discernment, wisdom and mercy. The Master of Arts in Counseling is a professional degree that builds upon God’s gifting and calling, allowing the counselor to shepherd individuals and families through difficult times
