Minister to the Needs of Your Congregation and Those Outside of the Church With a Master of Divinity - Pastoral Counseling at Liberty University
Do you feel called to help others by providing spiritual guidance and biblical direction for their lives? A pastoral counselor’s job is a bit different from that of a clinical counselor. While other forms of therapy focus mainly on mental health, a pastoral counselor integrates spirituality, faith, and theology with psychotherapy to provide help for those who seek assistance. As a pastoral counselor, you may provide counseling in a variety of areas such as personal, pre-marital and marital, family, and faith issues.
Throughout this degree, you will study a wide range of topics like the Old and New Testaments, apologetics, church ministry, evangelism, homiletics, and theology. In addition, you will have a number of pastoral counseling electives so that you can focus on the area that you feel God is calling you to or that interests you most.
