Foundations for Counseling Ministry ( CNH 211 )

This course is to equip those who feel called to reach out to broken, hurting people. As the entry course into degrees in the College/Faculty of Counseling and Health Care, it establishes the foundation stones for a biblical counseling ministry. These foundation stones include a commitment to reach the lost; recognition that ministry involves the individual, the family and the community; the Divine Plumb line counseling model; and revelation as a key to change. In addition, each course may address specific counseling models or tools and specific counseling issues that are considered relevant to a particular target field or ministry. Lectures, discussions, workshops, small group interaction and processes, personal study, assignments, and one-on-one feedback opportunities with school staff are the means through which these learning goals are achieved. The community of students and staff provides a laboratory where applications in all of the above areas can be worked out. In addition, biblical counseling skills are modeled throughout the course by staff and visiting teachers. Students benefit from the expertise of resource teachers from different counseling and ministry backgrounds. FCM Training programs have broad learning goals in three areas, with particular emphases in each one. These areas are: Personal Development (grace, relationships, identity and self awareness); Skill Development (personal/relational interactions, active listening, biblical belief renewal, prayer for healing, intercession); Cognitive Development (definition of counseling, counseling in the light of God's character, the work of the Cross and the Holy Spirit, the believer's identity in Christ, repentance and forgiveness, calling and gifts, stages of spiritual development, God's intention for the personality, authority through intercession, cross-cultural counseling, and the role of the counselor.) The lecture phase is the first part of a six-month training program. The second part is the field assignment described below. It is expected that students will complete both parts. For this school the first half of the lecture phase will be in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and the second half will be in Dehradun, India. Outreach will start in India/ Brazil and a possible an other nation depending on the amount of staff/students. The outreach will end in Amsterdam.
