Dean's Message

The Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook estimates that job opportunities for professional counselors and psychologists will grow faster than average for most careers during the next several years. This is good news for our graduates in terms of their career outlook. Yet this projection is also a reflection of the incredible need for healing that exists in humanity. We have been privileged to train well-equipped professionals who can be agents of God’s restorative grace in people’s lives. Our graduates provide assistance to people across the spectrum of life’s challenges: from helping people cope better with daily hassles to contending with traumas and matters of life and death. Our aim is to cultivate graduates who ethically serve in such critical roles with exemplary competence and faithfulness to biblical principles.

We are committed to offer training exemplifying the high standards of professional accreditation in counseling and psychology and to fully prepare our graduates to embrace their respective professional or paraprofessional identities.

Whether you are just visiting our website, currently enrolled in our programs, or otherwise engaging our academic community, we hope you will experience the dynamic and exciting scholarly journey that has been our calling.
