Welcome

The Master of Arts in Counseling *MAC presents the theory, method, and practice of counseling from a Pentecostal perspective. The program emphasizes distinctives of counseling for pastors and church staff members while also preparing those who will be counseling in other arenas, including those preparing for professional certification or state licensure by continuing from the Master of Arts in Counseling (48 credit hours) to the Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (78 credit hours). The degree concentration requires courses in Bible, doctrine, historical theology, and Pentecostal Foundations for Christian Ministry and Study, all of which form the substantive core required to integrate faith, spirituality, and counseling. Integration of Pentecostal theology, counseling theory, and practice is critical to the design of this degree.
