About Us

To educate with excellence.  To first, educate those Pastors and Christians who have heard God's call to counsel and help others live victoriously;  and to  provide them the credentials to do so in their own community.  Second, to educate individuals in living a life of victory in all their relationships, God first, others, and self.

We equip and provide credentials to Pastors and Christians who hear the call of God to lead people to victory, through the ministry of counseling.  Also, we provide counseling and personal development to individuals and groups.  To accomplish these goals we use two main tools.  All courses, and counseling or  personal development plans, will include the Word of God as primary in discovering the deepest needs of every human being and the answers to every one of those needs, and secondly the Arno Profile System to determine the counselee's unique temperament needs, strengths and weaknesses.  Together these provide the counselor with the in-depth information needed to outline a personal development or counseling plan, best suited to each counselee.
