The Foundations for Counseling Ministry seminar is the perfect place for you to learn how to grow deeper in relationships. Here, you will learn skills used in the counseling field to better equip you to have eyes to see the story of someone's life, allowing you to better walk with those around you towards the life of hope in Jesus. In the Foundations for Counseling seminar we cover topics like active listening, emotional regulation, family systems, understanding trauma, inner healing, the biblical basis for counseling and more. As Jesus followers, the most obedient thing we can do with our lives is love God and love people, there are hurting people in need of a safe place to be heard and seen wherever you go in life. This seminar will be six weeks of lecture, followed by a three week outreach. If you are looking for a place to improve and learn new things about relating to and building relationships with those around you, this is your opportunity!
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.
When overseas, students will apply what they’ve learned during the lecture phase through short teachings, relationships, and practical service.
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.
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.
