Certificate in Christian Counseling

Put the voice of God at the center of your counseling and become a vessel of His divine healing power

Are you satisfied with a Christian Counseling Certificate program that merely has “a Christian perspective,” or does your heart hunger for the ability to minister God’s transformational power, and to enable the broken and suffering to hear His voice speak life-giving words of comfort directly to their heart?


Are you looking for a radically different Christian Counseling Certificate program? A program with an approach that gets the rational mind out of the way and invites the Wonderful Counselor to come and replace those painful thoughts, pictures and memories with His positive ones?

If so, then a Certificate in Christian Counseling from Christian Leadership University is exactly what you’ve been searching for.



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)

Interested in a career in Christian Counseling?

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.
