In the Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling at The Master’s University, we train both men and women to become effective biblical counselors under the authority of the local church. 


Men and women who complete their Biblical Counseling at The Master’s University will be thoroughly trained in the theology and practice of biblical counseling to help people change and grow from the inside out.

Our program is saturated with a history of research in biblical counseling, biblical study, and critique of psychological methods to counseling.

Graduates with Biblical Counseling from The Master's University will be able to:

  • understand the Christ-like character and functional qualities of the discipler and counselor.
  • critically analyze secular and evangelical integrationist theories of psychology and psychotherapy
  • recognize theories or psychologies as part of larger belief systems, perhaps logically derived from erroneous starting points, while also comparing them to what has been revealed from Scripture and what falls into the study of theology, practical theology, and biblical counseling
