New Intake Open For Our Biblical Counseling Program

Have you ever considered a career in Biblical Counseling? As Dr. Skinner traveled and led conferences for many years, individuals would inquire of him where they might receive training and certification for the message that he was sharing. At the time he knew no place to send them. Now Dr. Skinner can prepare you to become a Certified Biblical Counselor through a combination of a Residency and Online Training Program. The program begins with a Residency Week.

What Is a Residency Week?

It is an intensive learning experience designed to teach you background, history, message, and skills for biblical counseling.
