The Certificate in Biblical Counselling aims to equip students to develop a culture of care in the local church.
There are 7 modules, spread over 3 years, and you can take as many or as few as you wish.
The course combines material from CCEF’s School of Biblical Counselling with new content developed by BCUK for the UK context.
Steve Midgley, Executive Director of Biblical Counselling UK, introduces the Certificate Course.
What’s the format?
The coursework, which involves set reading, watching online video lectures and completing assignments, is completed in a student’s own time and feedback on coursework is provided by UK Recitation Instructors.
Fortnightly seminars allow students to review the material with others under the guidance of an experienced tutor. These seminars and a week-long Summer Intensive add a skills component to the training.
Who would benefit from the course?
Pastors, social workers, youth workers and counsellors trained in secular therapies have all benefited from the course. The majority of students, however, are ‘ordinary’ church members eager to improve their ability to love those around them in biblically wise ways.
