We live in a world that constantly seeks counsel of one kind or another for the answer to every difficulty. The church is uniquely positioned and gifted to offer counsel to struggling people. For the most part, the church has abdicated its responsibility to offer counsel and passed hurting people off to professional psychologists and psychotherapists.
Believing that God’s Word is sufficient for the counseling task, we offer a training program designed to equip believers to minister Scripture to hurting people in a way that offers both encouraging hope and life-changing help. The program consists of three levels of training completed through the satisfaction of seven individual courses. Levels must be completed in sequence. Students must register for each level as a training block. Individual courses outside this structure are not available. The tuition for each level is as follows:
Level 1: $250
Level 2: $250
Level 3: $160
The successful completion of all three levels leads to a certification in biblical counseling. All three levels of training are offered every spring and fall, but only one level may be completed during any one semester. Levels must be completed sequentially beginning with Level 1 and progressing to Level 3. Each class meets on a Friday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and a Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Preview Conference is your opportunity to experience all that Southwestern has to offer. During your stay, you will have the opportunity to attend chapel, participate in a question and answer time with our president, Dr. Paige Patterson, and also have lunch with the professors and deans of our various schools. Regardless of whether you are visiting a classroom or talking with one of our current students, we hope you will join us in our pursuit to "Preach the Word and Reach the World."
