Second, this training is designed to help assist you in understanding the importance of the sufficiency of scripture in practical theology for soul-care and redemptive purposes, within the oversight and ministry of the local church. The fundamentals training is NOT FOR PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING use exclusively, outside of the purpose and authority of the local church.

Finally, this fundamentals training is NOT designed to be exhaustive in counseling content and methodology for discipling people in crisis. It does, however, provide a fundamental understanding of effectively ministering the timeless texts of Scripture to facilitate your own spiritual growth, as well as to increase your biblical skill level in the soul-care work of others.
#4 | THIS TRAINING REQUIRES APPROVAL FROM A TRAINING CENTER SPONSOR & MEMBERSHIP IN A CERTIFYING AGENCY

You must be sponsored by an approved training center director who will mentor your progress, and you must have an approved application for membership with the organization that will certify you. Congrats! You are now ready for the online M.I.T. training!
