amount of writing, which must be done in accordance
with college standards. Saturday morning workshops
are offered, allowing those applicants who show a
need for improvement an opportunity to learn and
develop required skills.

Degree CompletionMajors
The Degree Completion Program offers four major
courses of study in addition to its School of General
Education. Students may earn a Bachelor of Arts
degree in Biblical Counseling, Christian Ministries,
Liberal Studies, or Organizational Management.
Bachelor of Arts in
Biblical Counseling
The Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Counseling program
is based on the belief that the Holy Scripture, being
God’s law and testimony, is true and should serve
as the authoritative standard for the counseling of
all soul problems. No authority is higher than the
Word of God. Inspired and inerrant, it is sufficient
for understanding and resolving life’s nonphysical,
personal and interpersonal difficulties.
Biblical Counseling classes emphasize practice that
combines counseling skills with the biblical foundation
on which these skills are based. Counseling skills are
refined through practicum courses. Class work and
outside assignments are designed to give students
the ability to implement their knowledge and skills
immediately, not only in their personal lives, but also
in ministry.
Recognized by the
Association of Certified Biblical
Counselors (ACBC)
the BABC degree is far more than
a purely academic approach to counseling. Students
are taught to understand and apply God’s Word with
skill, integrity, authority and compassion. Ultimately,
students not only have a degree in hand, but skills
they can put to work wherever their career or ministry
takes them.
