Master of Ministry (M.Min.)

Biblical Counseling


Program Overview

The Master of Ministry in Biblical Counseling is a 36 semester hour program. Through the study of key Bible books from both the Old and New Testaments, the program focuses upon biblical concepts necessary for successful pastoral and lay counseling within the church. The program is a great option for those who are seeking to offer faith-based counseling in the local church and desire to enhance their knowledge of the Bible.

The Master of Ministry in Biblical Counseling does not require language work or a master’s thesis. All coursework is lecture-based, with a variety of professors presenting practical exposition courses for the Christian teacher. Students will be challenged to think more deeply about the Word of God than ever before. Most courses will test the student’s grasp of the course material through traditional final exams. Upon completion of the course, students should have a large collection of practical notes that they can easily transform into lessons for the church counseling session.

The Master of Ministry (Biblical Counseling) program is an advance-at-your-own-pace program. Students are required to maintain a 2.5 GPA to graduate.
