the lecture phase

The goal of the FCM is to introduce primary tools, principles and models for biblical counseling ministry. By learning and practicing these principles, students often experience personal growth and healing. Topics of the FCM may include but are not limited to: active listening, mind renewal, trauma, sexuality, grief and loss, boundaries and more. .

the outreach phase

After your 12 week lecture phase, you will head out on an international outreach to some of the hardest to reach places on earth. Your outreach, which will be 2-3 months long, is designed to not only reach the lost but to also practice tools gained throughout your FCM lecture phase.

frequently asked questions

Will the FCM bring healing to my own life?

God brings healing to the degree that we cooperate with his work in our lives, whether in FCM or elsewhere. Many subjects covered in FCM address learning to be whole so we can help others heal.

What does the outreach phase look like?

When overseas, students will apply what they’ve learned during the lecture phase through short teachings, relationships, and practical service.

What type of tools will I walk away with?

You will learn how to listen well, how to begin to minister to survivors of sexual abuse and other traumas, how to give short teachings, how to minister inner-healing prayer, how to understand grieving people and different personalities, how to renew your mind, and many other skills.

What is the work load of the school?

You will be attending daily FCM classes, and weekly YWAM community worship and intercession times. You will be assigned a two hour a day work duty. You will also submit journal work every week and write a paper approximately every other week.
