Lay Counselor Training Program

The Lay Counseling Training Program (LCTP) is designed to provide individuals with training and hands-on experience in gospel-centered counseling. The goal of this program is to promote personal, gospel-centered growth in individuals and
to equip and encourage them to engage in Spirit-dependent, gospel-saturated counseling, both formally and informally,
within the NHC body.

The LCTP follows the “Head-Heart-Hands” approach and is comprised of academic projects, mentoring, observation, and hands-on experience. The program is designed so that each successive phase of training progresses into deeper and more rigorous training. The student may complete only the first phase, or press on and finish all three.

If you are interested in beginning the Lay Counselor Training Program please complete the short survey above. For more info about the program you may visit our online learning center.
