Biblical Counseling Institute

The objective for the Certificate in Biblical Counseling Program is to lay a foundation which helps people use a biblical approach to address life’s common problems. You will learn when to help, how to help, and when to refer. One of the goals is for some of our graduates, after a successful screening process, to assist the ministries of The Chapel in a volunteer capacity as a lay counselor. Currently, The Chapel uses over 60 lay counselors who have been trained through the Biblical Counseling Institute to assist the counseling staff.
