The Foundations for Counselling Ministry is an opportunity to be equipped to bring wholeness to individuals and communities in need. During this course, you will gain a biblical perspective and methods for ministry to the broken, grow in using counselling skills and gain biblical insight into issues that are relevant in the world today.
