The Foundation for Counseling Ministry school (FCM) focuses on equipping and empowering you with the skills, knowledge and personal growth you need in order to have greater impact on the field that you are serving.

Along with acquiring the skills and tools, you will be able to develop and experience personal restoration, healing and wholeness in the context of safe relationship for you to have the authority to lead others in the same process. This will happen through formal lectures, discussions, one on one interactions, support groups, inner healing ministry and prayers, quiet time, worship and feedback opportunities. Our foundation will be an understanding of the Father’s grace and acceptance, the cross and our identity in Christ.
