The Academy of Counseling, Ministry, and Education is a program designed to prepare students who are called to people oriented and relationally centered careers. The curriculum will provide a biblical foundation while also equipping students with a knowledge of people’s functions, thoughts, and behaviors (psychology), people’s impact on society (sociology), and people’s foundational beliefs (philosophy). Through the advanced course, students will investigate foundations, methodologies, and opportunities in various people oriented career fields, while also examining and developing their own personal callings. The program culminates in the cadet program and a capstone internship where students will gain real world experience in a personally tailored environment that fits their individual calling. Through the program the hope is that students will be better prepared and equipped to fulfill their various callings and impact their world for Christ.
