Master of Ministry

Christian Counseling

The Master of Ministry in Christian Counseling is a 45 semester hour program that blends together Bible teaching from ATS and Christian counseling courses from the National Christian Counselors Association.  The program requires 27 hours of faith-based counseling courses from the NCCA through ATS. The program offers training and courses in Biblical Studies, Pastoral Ministries, Theology, and Christian Counseling.

Upon completion of the program, the student earns both a Master of Ministry in Christian Counseling degree from ATS and faith-based licensure through the NCCA as a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor.  This faith-based licensure is not to be confused with state-based licensure.  The NCCA faith-based licensure, however, does allow students to counsel professionally under the umbrella of the local church.  For more information on the benefits of the NCCA licensure, please call the head of the ATS Christian Counseling Department.

The M.Min. (Christian Counseling) program is an advance-at-your-own-pace program, with a maximum of two years being allowed for the completion of the program.  Upon completion of this program, a student may apply directly to the D.Min. (Christian Counseling) degree program.
