Program Information

School: Kingswood University
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Pastoral Studies/Counselling
Description: The world that we live in, though filled with hope and purpose for many people, is also a place of hurt and difficulty for others. Our communities and churches are comprised of many people who experience trouble in adjusting to the circumstances of daily life, the losses and changes in relationships, and the spiritual questions that arise in the midst of crisis. For many students at Kingswood University, these individuals will be your “church” and the focus of your ministry.

The Christian Counselling program is designed to assist you in developing therapeutic techniques and understanding of theories. Most importantly, it is designed to provide you with a realistic worldview and an opportunity for you to see how your ministry can be tailored to address the existing needs of the Church.
