Lay Counseling Certification 

Keep clear of psychiatrists unless you know that they are Christians. Otherwise they start with the assumption that your religion is an illusion and try to “cure” it.  C. S. Lewis, 1966  

 

Our mission is rooted in Solution Focused Counseling. We operate from an understanding that believers have the answers that they need in God.  Our goal is to help individuals, couples and families get unstuck and move forward in being transformed into the perfect image of Christ Jesus. Solution Focused Counseling is not about changing a person’s personality or focusing on the root of the problem. Rather, we focus on helping them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals.  

 

        Individuals and church ministry leaders may earn Covenant Counseling Ministries’ Lay Counseling Certificate.   

 

Level I Certificate

You must successfully complete these six courses:  

Personality Assessments

Counseling, whether lay counseling or professional counseling, is both challenging and rewarding. Professional counselors are required to participate in Supervision as an adjunct to their training. Supervision is conducted with a licensed or experienced counselor where cases are confidentially discussed and lay counselors are supported and provided direction.  Covenant Counseling takes its call to “prepare Apostolic Believers for the care of others” seriously and as such Level II Supervision is an essential part of the professional level of training that you receive.

Restore - Faith-Based Support Group

RESTORE, a faith-based support group

 

Our mission is to RESTORE, equip, teach and assist individuals in transforming into the perfect image of Jesus Christ.

 

“RESTORE” is a sound, evidence informed substance abuse program designed to teach basic facts about addictions, the healing process and how you can truly impact the life of a loved one struggling with substance abuse. Galatians 6:1 instructs that we get involved.

 

The goal is to RESTORE (to mend; fit back together) those whose lives are overtaken in the sin of addiction. People without addictions simply cannot understand it and don’t know what to do when it comes to a loved one affected. Christ’s vision was the Great Commission, which tells us as Christians to go forth and spread the good news.

 

With this at the heart of our purpose, we believe God’s vision for RESTORE at your church is to be a caring community committed to providing an environment where those that are suffering from Alcohol and Substance Abuse/Dependence can receive support and evidence based treatment.

 

What Participants Will Learn

Our goal is to assist those struggling to overcome and recover from addiction.  To provide loving and caring support to family members affected by addiction. 

 

Galatians 6:1(KJV)

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

 

Participants are required to complete the following courses:

Individual Assessment Tools

Conducting Groups

Process of Change

Relapse Prevention

Referral/Aftercare

Spiritual Support

 

 

Who Should Attend

Mental Health Professionals

Clergy/Lay

 Mentors or Relationship Experts 

 

What makes RESTORE different from other recovery programs is that unlike traditional treatment programs and recovery groups, we use God’s Word in additional to scientific evidence based techniques to help people overcome the guilt, frustration, hopelessness, fear, and shame associated with destructive life-styles.   

 

We teach and endorse the disease concept of addictions and the saving, restoring power of Christ to overcome and be victorious in life.
