As a clergy member, you play a vital role in providing guidance and support to your congregation during times of emotional distress and personal challenges. To further enhance your pastoral care skills and expand your ability to serve others effectively, we invite you to consider our Counseling Certificate for Clergy (CCC) program.

At Promises Church, we understand the unique challenges clergy members face when addressing the emotional and psychological needs of their congregants. Our comprehensive certificate program is specifically designed to equip you with the necessary tools and knowledge to offer compassionate and effective counseling services within your ministry.

Program Highlights:

  2. Psychological and Emotional Well-being: Deepen your understanding of common mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, grief, and trauma, to better assist individuals facing these challenges.
  3. Counseling Techniques: Learn evidence-based counseling techniques and interventions to support individuals in crisis, facilitate healing, and promote resilience.
  4. Cultural Sensitivity: Develop cultural competency skills to effectively address the diverse needs and backgrounds of your congregation members, fostering inclusivity and understanding.

  6. Supervised Practicum: Apply your knowledge and skills in a supervised clinical setting, gaining practical experience in providing counseling services under the guidance of experienced professionals.

Our faculty consists of highly qualified instructors who are experienced in both pastoral ministry and professional counseling. They bring a wealth of knowledge and practical insights to the program, enriching your learning experience and providing guidance tailored to the unique challenges you face as clergy.

Upon completion of the Counseling Certificate for Clergy program, you will be equipped to offer effective support and guidance to individuals and families in your congregation who are navigating personal difficulties, strengthening your role as a compassionate spiritual leader.
