Spirit-led Christian Counseling Courses

Applied Toward a Christian Counseling Certificate or Christian Counseling Degree

Christian counseling courses with God’s voice at the core

We invite you to experience the life-changing power of the voice of God, which is the central focus of the Christian counseling courses offered by CLU. Our desire is to train up biblically-based, Spirit-anointed compassionate counselors who can discern the needs of the heart and usher in the grace of God to meet those needs; to train up people to counsel using the techniques and skills which Jesus Christ used.

Real Life, Biblically-grounded,
Revelation-based Learning

Real Life – Birthed from real life issues and taught from real life experiences.

Biblically-grounded – You see your life’s experiences in the light of Scripture.

Revelation-based – God speaks to you in each and every learning experience.

“I enrolled in CLU in October. The classes have been beyond anything I had hoped for. This has been more like an adventure than school.”

Vanessa Tinsley-Stone

“Even the first class changed my life. I felt that not only was my mind being expanded by the truths of God’s Word, but my heart and spirit were also growing. This was a school of the Spirit and was changing me with every class.”

Nicholas Kusmich

“Becoming a part of CLU has changed my life. Something that is so fascinating to me in studying with the courses of CLU is how each time I study, the presence of the Holy Spirit is right there and is sooo strong. It grows more intense at times. I am amazed at His presence, the wisdom and what He reveals while studying.”

Christian counseling courses by correspondence or online

All of our Christian counseling courses are available by distance learning, and you may choose to submit your coursework online. Your course materials will arrive by mail, and you will then able to contact your instructor online and conveniently email any assignments to him. The courses may be purchased individually or as a total package. If purchased as a pre-paid package, the cost is reduced by 20%. Two to five courses are sent at a time, as the student requests. Prices are subject to change without notice. Payment may be made by credit card.

Additional work is required when an undergraduate-level course is taken on the graduate level. Course substitutions and combining major concentrations are possible when working toward your Christian counseling degree. Discuss these options with the Dean.

The key is to follow God’s passion within your heart. Students in the Master’s and Doctoral programs earn approximately 30 credits for each degree from specific courses, and the remaining 10 credits by doing practical ministry work and earning “practica” credits.

“I am currently a staff psychiatric social worker at an inpatient unit for adolescents. I have a small private practice as well as a teen group at my local church. I have received a Bachelor of Science in Business and double majored in Psychology, as well as achieving Master’s level training in Counseling.

“I have worked in two psychiatric units as well as a teen homeless shelter, and provided home-based family counseling in the inner city. I have supervised numerous clinicians and developed programming for these positions. In my current position at the hospital, I work all day alongside the most reputable psychiatrist in our region.

“Knowing what I learned in my secular training is definitely useful. However the knowledge and skills taught through the counseling courses at Christian Leadership University are what have been EFFECTIVE. I see more positive longstanding results in the private practice patients utilizing the information taught and cultivated by Communion With God, Counseled By God, Prayers That Heal the Heart, and Christian Dream Interpretation than any of the counseling theories that you are forced to study in Master’s Level Counseling Curriculum. Secular counseling techniques mainly ‘band aid’ people’s struggles and symptoms. However, inner healing heals the wounds in a person’s heart.

“I can say that the training received in the Counseling Curriculum at CLU has been absolutely priceless for the many counselees I have worked with. 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.”
