CenterPoint Institute exists to train its students on how to lead skillfully through life. It is a tool to help fill the leadership and effective ministry vacuum that now exists in the American church. Our goal is to equip well-trained, relevant, effective ministers and leaders to deal with the challenges of life at home, work, business, and church.
We offer three separate years of Bible-based study. These classes can be taken in any order the student desires. The three years of study have distinct areas of focus: Leadership; Counseling; and Bible.
For this study we will use materials from “Light University.” You will learn what the Bible has to say about today’s tough issues such as; Depression, Guilt, Divorce, Anxiety, Sexual Abuse, Addictions and much more!
Earn your Certificate, Regular Diploma, or Advanced Diploma by taking two additional electives, while studying with some of the world’s leading and most trusted counseling faculty. This course is recognized and endorsed by Gary Smalley and the “American Association of Christian Counselors,” and is a college credit course, including "continuing education credits."
1st Year: Caring for People God's Way
“Caring For People God's Way” is a general introduction to Biblical counseling. It is a program that educates and equips a community of helpers to offer solid Biblical encouragement, direction, hope, and personal growth to others. Special attention is given to the needs of hurting people and what the Bible says about how a counseling ministry can potentially change a person's life.
2nd Year: Breaking Free
“Breaking Free” is a Biblical counseling program that educates and equips a community of helpers to assist others in overcoming some of life's difficulties. It can be used alone or in combination with “Caring For People God's Way” as a lay helper training tool offering Biblical encouragement, hope, and personal growth. Particular attention will be given to addiction and other complex issues stemming from life experience.
