Christian Counseling -- An Emerging Ministry

Over the millennia, the Lord has seen fit to minister to Christians in many ways.  Every aspect of human life is of concern to our loving Father.  With the multitude of Satanic forces attacking our society, it is no surprise that the ministry of Christian Counseling has grown quickly over the past few decades.  IIOCC is here to help light the way. Christian Counseling DegreeIf you have heard the call to enter the ministry of Christian Counseling, the IIOCC is ready to help you acquire the credentials you need.

A New Kind of Bible School

Traditional Bible schools and seminaries perform a vital role in educating and training ministers, pastors and other members of the clergy.  As the need for Christian counselors has rapidly expanded, there is an unprecedented need for training those who wish to enter the ministry of counseling.

The International Institute of Christian Counseling was created to address that need.  This unique school offers courses not ordinarily found in Bible school, but that are entirely relevant to the life challenges and spiritual problems facing Christians today.  The degree programs deal only with matters specifically relevant to counseling, and do not offer a traditional liberal arts education.
