Dear Friend:

Marriage problems, divorce, sexual addiction, substance abuse, anxiety, depression… our world is full of brokenness.

In many ways, the pace, pain and pressures of modern day life have taken over. Who doesn’t feel a little overwhelmed (maybe a lot) and stressed?

Although this appears to be the worst of times, something seems to be happening around the world—people are searching for relief, hope, healing and restoration. I believe they are looking for God. Brokenness begs for healing.

Caring for People God’s Way will help equip you to respond to the growing needs and provide competent and compassionate care to those who are hurting. Our goal is to help you understand the tough issues people wrestle with today and use the Bible with confidence with those who need clear direction and could use some strong encouragement. It is biblically-based and features some of the best faculty in the world. Upon successful completion of your coursework, you will earn a certificate of completion in Biblical Counseling from Light University. Each course comes complete with six lessons on DVD, work text and, of course, exams. This convenient format allows you to study at home or the office at your own pace.

Continuing Education credits are available, if needed, for mental health professionals too!

If you feel called by God to make a difference in the lives of people around you, let us help equip and train you through Caring for People God’s Way.

I can’t wait to see what God is going to do through this series!
