Spirit-led Christian Counseling Degrees

Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate

A Christian counseling degree program with God’s voice at the core

We believe that Christian Leadership University offers the most unique and powerful Christian counseling degree program available. 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.

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.

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.
