Interested in a career in Christian Counseling?
The Counseling Curriculum at CLU has been absolutely priceless… Instead of getting caught in endless talks about ‘the problem’ you learn to minister to people on a heart-to-heart level and not a head-to-head level. (Read more of his story)

Psychiatric Social Worker

I just completed my Doctorate of Christian Counseling through Christian Leadership University. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing this experience was for me in terms of healing, personal growth, and growing as close to God as I have ever been.

I’ve learned to discern the voice of God through dialoguing and dreams. To think, all of these years He may have been trying to speak to me and I didn’t know how to listen to Him. Hearing God and allowing Him to be the Wonderful Counselor He truly is has totally changed my life. Thank you to the Virklers and to Christian Leadership University for your amazing ministry. May God richly bless you.
