DISTANCE LEARNING
 
A Message From Our President, Ken Wilson, PhD.

Ken WilsonWelcome to Agape Counseling Center's "Distance Learning Counseling Courses". Distance learning offers students the opportunity to study at their own pace with their own classroom materials and achieve certified training degrees. Agape Counseling Center offers courses through Distance Learning, and some are featured at the Sunset International Bible Institute Northwest. Agape Counseling Center is accredited by the National Christian Counselors Association.

We offer quality course materials with a Christian emphasis, recognizing the Bible as the primary source for Christian counseling. God is the creator of the universe, the Master Counselor (Isaiah 9:6) and the Provider of all good things (Philippians 4:19). Our courses are simple, yet effective in training others to counsel. These courses are based on biblical principles and psychological laws that empower hurting people to face the trials of life. We offer training and mentoring support to all of our students, regardless of where they live. We send course materials to students throughout the nation and around the world. This ministry is designed to provide quality training to people with hearts for God and a desire to help people develop skills to live a life that pleases the Lord and is fulfilling. I hope you will consider joining us on a counseling journey you will never forget or regret. Thank you for considering Agape Counseling Center.
