What is it?
This Foundation for Counseling Ministry school focuses on learning relationship skills. Relationships can be a tremendous blessing, but they can also make our life very difficult. But God is a God of relationships. Lets look at healthy, biblical principles together and learn how to apply them in our own lives as well as how to be a help for others.
This school gives you a firm foundation and many tools to work with other people – whether you will be staff in a YWAM school or work in a cell group of your home church.
Phase one is a three-month classroom segment which utilizes lectures, discussions, workshops, small group interactions and personal study. The close community of students and staff provides an environment where the application of Biblical counseling skills can be worked out. Here are some oh the topics of the school
- Bible point of view of human personality (divine plumbline)
- Renewing of the mind
- Healing of emotions and trauma
- Family systems
- Human reactions to rejection
Phase two is the field assignment. This provides a practical experience where the knowledge, skills and character qualities of a Biblical counselor learned in the lecture phase are put into practice in a mission field setting. Students will find enriching cross-cultural opportunities and challenging experiences of working on a team at one of the ministry locations around the world.
Our weekly speakers, coming from around the world, will share their experiences, their knowledge and their ministry with us for the glory of God!
