What my students are saying

It has been my privilege to serve students who are now making disciples around the world.

Jesse


"Pastor Jeff dropped so many gems in this week’s podcast. Some of the very best advice that I ever received in my life was NOT to respond in haste to criticism, slander, rejection or other’s vile comments. I am in total agreement with pastor Jeff that whenever I have not followed this advice I have regretted it. "

Walt


"Jeff was a voice of reasoned grace and maturity in a competition of personalities. He was an ally that believed in me, and gave me the chance that I needed... He understood my medical problems and worked with me. It was an honor to be a student under his charge."

Liz

"It has been very helpful for me the way you break up into lessons, modules, and transcripts, step-by-steps. I believe that no to self is the only way to follow Christ. But crucifying self has been very difficult for me. I pray that by the grace of God, He will help me in this area of my weakness. It is my goal to be transformed in my mind, my heart and my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and be equipped to counsel others God’s way. I want to be equipped to help others in a more effective way."

Three Steps to Success

We will help you step-by-step on your path to certification.

01.

Biblical Studies

Classroom instruction through audio lessons, video, and reading assignments will ensure that you are Biblically literate. It's our goal that you know Jesus and make Him Known through the study of the Word of God!

*This is the equivalent of 6 College Credits and offers a tuition value of $2160.00

02.

Evaluations & Exams

We help you pass your evaluations and exams with tutorials. It is important that you understand the Bible academically, but that you also have heart knowledge. We test your head, heart and hands. 

*This is the equivalent of 3 College Credits and offers a tuition value of $1080.00

03.

Counseling Practicum

This is where the rubber meets the road. As one Bible teacher says, "Your Bible should be bound in shoe leather." In other words, let's walk out your faith in the counseling setting. This is where you are mentored for 50 hours in real soul care moments.

A look at the inside of our digital classroom

01.

Grab your books!


This is your foundation. The online classroom experience includes audio and video content delivered by Pastor Jeff, your dean. We will have a series of additional lectures from professors, authors and experts as our guest instructors. You will build a library of books where you will enjoy classics and modern texts covering the foundations of Biblical Counseling. Be ready to read, write and enjoy the curated digital content step-by-step (2 Timothy 2:15).

See Book List

02.

Get ready for your exams!


These exams and evaluations are part of the core training. There are two professors who will grade your exam to ensure nothing is missed. Often, there will be push back from your exam reader asking you for further clarification. Most students seeking certification get stuck at this point and give up (because these exams are not easy). But not you! I will assist you through each exam question. You will have tutorials that are designed to ensure your success.

03.

Supervised Counseling - Practicum


In this important phase of your certification journey, we will work as a group over Zoom calls to discuss the counseling situation. When you sit with an individual for 1:1 soul care, you make notes of your progress. Supervised Counseling is where we discuss your 1:1 ministry so that you can improve. All sessions are guarded with confidentiality a protocol to protect us from evil speaking (1 Peter 2:1, Titus 3:2, Ephesians 4:29, 31, James 4:11).

Nice to meet you!

My name is Jeff Christianson, the Dean of Biblical Counseling! 


I started training Biblical Counselors in 1998 at Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, California under the care of my mentor, Pastor Chuck Smith. I still cannot believe the privilege to be a staff pastor at CCBC for over 10 years! It was at CCBC that I met and married my wife, Jennie. During those years I was trained and discipled by Pastor Bob Hoekstra in Biblical Theology, Growing in Grace, and Counseling God's Way. Pastor Bob charged me, "Jeff, continue to make disciples using the Counseling God's Way curriculum!"  Both of my mentors are now home with the Lord and I take their charge seriously by making disciples wherever I go. 

The approach of this school of ministry is that of a pastor, not of a researcher. My primary desire is to explore the word of God on these important matters of counseling, discipling, and personal ministry. This is not a research project detailing the various systems of psychological theory. Others have done excellent work in this area. The general references made to psychological theory in this course of study are given to provide spiritual contrasts and biblical warnings.

Today, I serve as the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. I am the current President of the International Association of Biblical Counselors, a Professor of Biblical Counseling at Calvary Chapel University, and the Founder and Chair of the Biblical Counseling Academy where I will serve you as your Dean of Biblical Counseling and Soul Care!
