Benefits of Training

As counseling professionals, you will play a vital role in the change and growth of an individual’s ability to think, feel, and act in constructive and godly ways. You will be an active partner with others on multiple levels to foster and facilitate good mental health within your community.

The main benefit of taking the Counseling Training Course and obtaining your certification from LAC is knowledge. The training you receive will provide an insight into understanding human behavior and relating to others. This knowledge is valuable in every area of your life and will equip you to help those who are hurting. Your church community can be assured that your credentials are authentic and current, because you will be involved in continuing education and under evaluation.



You have a heart for God’s people


You have a desire to help those who are hurting


You want to see people healed and made whole


You are a Pastor or ministry leader that would like to skillfully help troubled people and to know when someone needs more help than your church can offer?
