The James C. Dobson Certificate and Life Coach Certification Programs

Introducing the James C. Dobson Certificate and Life Coach Certification Programs at Light University

Friends and Family First Offering $299
Dear Friends:

It’s no secret that today’s marriages and families are in trouble. As today’s generations work to build healthy marriages and strong families, many are sadly experiencing a pervasive sense of emptiness and brokenness.

The pace, pressure and pain of modern-day life have taken over. The result? An epidemic of Empty and Loveless Relationships, Divorce, Fatherlessness, Abuse, Domestic Violence, Teen Suicide and more.

James Dobson
Dr. James C. Dobson
America’s Leading Family Advocate
“We’re in a death struggle,” Dr. James Dobson said recently. “I am particularly concerned about re-defining the family, because it wasn’t our idea… it was God’s idea, going back to the Garden of Eden, and we are about to throw it on the ash heap of history. I pray that we do not, because we will not recover if we do.”

Psalm 127:1 (KJV) says it well, “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it….”

We need an army of trained leaders who will “stand in the gap” for today’s children, marriages and families!

The American Association of Christian Counselors and Light University have partnered with Dr. Dobson to create a nationally recognized and uniquely designed program of marriage and family education, intervention and advocacy.

We want to train and equip individuals, just like you, who have a heart to help people in need with the necessary tools to be more effective in helping and coaching others. Our mission is to preserve and promote the institution of the family and the biblical principles on which it is based by training a generation of leaders to stand in the gap and help strengthen today’s marriages and families.

The unique nature of each program of study offers the opportunity to learn from Dr. Dobson, hear his “voice,” and experience his passion in each course.

When you enroll, each course includes a video-based introduction and instruction by Dr. Dobson, lectures from recognized mental health and educational leaders, 90-second video commentaries with Dr. Dobson, relevant Family Talk radio broadcasts that engage content experts and topically oriented special reports authored by Dr. Dobson… and, of course, a full worktext with exams.

Counselors, Pastors, Chaplains, Students, Sunday School Teachers, Small Group Leaders, Coaches, Parents, Grandparents and “Those called to help care for others!”
Become a Board Certified Marriage & Family Life Coach!
